Season‘s Turn
Saturday, November 15, 2014, 7 p.m.
Cambridge High School

As the weather turns colder, help us celebrate with music that brings in the new season. We start with the lush Snow Maiden Suite by Rimsky-Korsakov. Next we dance with Winter from Vivaldi‘s Four Seasons. And to really send chills up your spine, we conclude with Tchaikovsky‘s Symphony No. 6, Op. 74, otherwise known as the Pathétique (passionate and emotional). Full of gorgeous themes you‘ll know, the Pathétique has become a staple in film scores such as Anna Karenina, Minority Report, and The Aviator.

This concert is made possible through the generous support of The Home Depot. With their support, and in honor of Veteran's Day, any veteran receives $10 off this concert at the door.

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!

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.

Pierre Ruhe of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution newspaper recently reviewed the orchestra. Read what the AJC had to say about the Georgia Philharmonic.
