Atlanta Symphony Orchestra
The 27-Grammys-and-counting ASO keeps the summer shows rolling with its outdoor presentations of Liza Minnelli, Mary Chapin Carpenter, and .38 Special. The symphony accompanies Liza as she sings American standards as well as a few intimate renditions with her quartet and Billy Stritch. The ASO hands the musical reins over for the next two concerts, allowing Mary Chapin Carpenter to sing folk and country hits from her two-decade career, including songs from the Grammy-nominated album, The Calling. Finishing the trio with its signature Southern-rock sound is .38 Special, whose string of decade-dominating hits in the '80s will be joined by songs from more-recent albums.
