20 musicians gather to celebrate 20 years of great music by the ABO, with selections chosen by you, our audience! Program includes Handel’s Water Music and Bach’s Brandenburg Concerto No. III, among other audience and musician favorites featuring an impressive array of wind instruments—baroque piccolo/flute, oboes, natural horns, trumpets, and bassoon.

The Atlanta Symphony Orchestra’s brass section has been venerated as one of the finest in the country for the last twenty-five years. These musicians hail from all corners of the United States and were selected to be a part of this long-standing tradition of excellence by way of audition and a panel of ASO Brass alongside the Music Director. They have worked tirelessly as a team to maintain the highest standards of brass playing throughout their careers and to unify their sounds into a beautiful array of colors.

This winter they will bring to you some of the best arrangements of holiday and symphonic music written specifically for brass ensemble and percussion. Program highlights will include selections from Tchaikovsky’s Nutcracker Suite, Bruckner’s Ave Maria, traditional holiday chorales, and several standards from the symphony orchestra repertoire. It will be an evening of delightful music and great brass playing, not to be missed!

One of the greatest monuments of Western music, Johann Sebastian Bach’s Johannes-Passion will be brought to vivid life using period instruments and historically informed performance practices. Certain to be one of the great events of the Atlanta music scene this season, you will not want to miss this experience with the ABO, Cathedral Choir & Schola, and a world-class cast of soloists!

One of the most profound choral services of the year, this meditation employs lessons and carols, Spirituals, anthems, motets, and congregational hymns to illuminate the Passion of Christ, which is retold using biblical narratives from Mark, Matthew, and John, sung to some of the most ancient plainchant known to the Church.

Join us for a delightful evening of musical gems for boys’ voices by Britten and Poulenc, to name but two of the great composers whose music will be presented on this concert. The Choir of St Paul’s Cathedral, London, is one of the most renowned Choirs of Men & Boys in the world. Known worldwide from its many recordings and, throughout modern history, its participation in services on national occasions, most recently HM The Queen’s Diamond Jubilee (2012) and the funeral of Baroness Thatcher (2013), the Choir’s main responsibility is to sing the daily choral services of St Paul’s Cathedral, for which it maintains one of the largest active choral repertoires of any choir, anywhere.

ABO’s Artistic Administrator and Violinist Evan Few takes the helm as Guest Director for our final concert of the season, celebrating the flourishing of musical arts in 17th- and 18th-century Rome with a program featuring selections from Arcangelo Corelli’s beloved Concerti Grossi and a variety of other gems from members of his circle.
