With September officially underway, the Atlanta Symphony Orchestra is celebrating the beginning of its landmark 75th season.

“In addition to the major artistic achievements of our 75th season, we look forward to connecting with the metro-Atlanta community on a deeper level than ever before. This season is both a celebration of our rich history, and a time to look to the future and our next 75 years,” said Jennifer Barlament, ASO Executive Director.
