Atlanta Symphony Orchestra To Resume In-Person Concerts
The orchestra will return to Symphony Hall for the 2021-22 season while continuing to offer virtual broadcasts
Beginning on September 9, the ASO's 77th season will open with a full Beethoven program, to be performed for three consecutive nights.
Guest artists for this season include Stephen Hough, Avi Avita, Midori, Ksenija Sidorova, Dmitry Sinkovsky, and Alisa Weilerstein. In 2022, there will also be special one-night performances featuring Itzhak Perlman (May 21), Yo-Yo Ma (April 13), cellist Sheku Kanneh-Mason and pianist Isata Kanneh-Mason (May 8).
Audience members are expected to be able to attend the concerts, although further details on COVID-19 safety protocols will be announced later in the summer.
“We are thrilled to once again take the stage in Symphony Hall and look forward to welcoming back live audiences in September,” said Jennifer Barlament, the ASO’s executive director. “We are grateful for the support and collaboration of Robert Spano and Sir Donald Runnicles during this unprecedented year, and we look forward to enjoying the brilliance of this creative team.”
