For $20, you could go see Ashton Kutcher and Katherine Heigl ham it up in the critically acclaimed Killers. Of course, you could also take said $20 and hear beautiful, live classical music.
The Atlanta Symphony Orchestra is presenting a series of evenings designed to introduce classical music to a new audience. Symphony Socials- Evenings For Young Professionals is aimed at bringing young(er) folks together for a night of mingling and Mozart. It’s an opportunity to meet emerging classical artists, make new friends, and enjoy the symphonic sounds of the ASO, a local treasure.
This Friday, check out the first installment of the series. For more information, here’s a blurb straight from the ASO:
6:30pm — 7:30pm
Pre-concert Symphony Social at TAP

Concert at Atlanta Symphony Hall featuring conductor Robert Spano and Mezzo-Soprano Kelley O’Connor

The melodic spark of Mozart’s much-adored 40th and 41st (“Jupiter”) Symphonies highlights the season finale. Ms. O’Connor, an ASO favorite in Ainadamar and other works, “held the audience captive” (Chicago Tribune) in a 2008 performance of U.S. composer Peter Lieberson’s five songs based on Nobel Prize-winning Chilean poet Pablo Neruda’s love sonnets.
