The concert was fun, delightful, and just everything that a music enthusiast could clap for. It was an evening that I won't forget and my favorite concert ever! Be careful, I'd like to hug everyone!

In our final concert of the year, let your imagination run wild as we take you through the storybook with Stravinsky‘s Firebird Suite, The William Tell Overture (“Hi Ho Silver!”), the wonderfully dark Saint-Saens Danse Macabre, and the great Russian story of Lieutenant Kijé by Prokofiev. It’s a program you‘re sure to remember. This concert is co-sponsored by the Arts, Education & Ideas at Oglethorpe University Series.

(Please note the special 8 p.m. starting time for this concert.)

Aaron Copland's Appalachian Spring is an exceptional work of American music which paints a picture of the expansive West. Listen to a portion of our performance of Aaron Copland's Appalachian Spring.

Having visited Paris in the 1920s, George Gershwin decided to capture the bustle of the city in his 1928 piece, An American in Paris. Listen to the Georgia Philharmonic's rendition of this classic work, complete with tuned taxi horns.
