In the music business for more than half a century, the 95-member Atlanta Symphony Orchestra keeps busy with more than 200 yearly concerts. Music Director Robert Spano and Principal Guest Conductor Donald Runnicles produce a season of well-attended classical concerts, popular pops and family concerts, and special holiday performances. The Atlanta Symphony Orchestra Chorus and Atlanta Symphony Youth Orchestra complement the ASO, whose performers make a special commitment to Atlanta's young musicians through discovery, teaching and mentoring programs in local schools.
With more than 1,700 seats, Symphony Hall is located in Midtown's Woodruff Arts Center, along with the Atlanta College of Art, the Alliance Theatre Company and the High Museum of Art. A new Symphony Center is planned for a site just one block from the ASO's current setting, on 14th and Peachtree streets. Spanish-born architect Santiago Calatrava will design the space to open in 2008.
