The Atlanta Symphony Orchestra will make its second consecutive appearance at the Cedartown Civic Auditorium on Saturday, Dec. 16. The program will start at 8 p.m. and is scheduled to be a collection of classical and traditional holiday music. Tickets are selling from $20-$30, depending on seating arrangements. Currently in its 56th season, the Atlanta Symphony is known for its excellent performances and its "extensive Grammy-award winning discography." The orchestra has played concerts abroad in Europe, receiving applause from critics and audiences alike. The Atlanta Symphony was founded by The Music Club of Atlanta and later came under the control of a board of directors. Henry Sopkinn was the conductor for more than two decades, with Robert Shaw taking over at the helm in 1967. When Shaw arrived in Atlanta, the Symphony increased its number of musicians to 87. Shaw, too, led the orchestra for two decades, ending his illustrious career by leading the orchestra in a European tour. In 1988, Yoel Levi became the conductor and has remained ever since.
