For 60 years, the Georgia Symphony Orchestra has entertained eardrums with delightful renderings of classical favorites. During the opening concert of the 2011–2012 season, the players’ well-rested bows sprint across strings in Samuel Barber’s Violin Concerto before sashaying into Brahms’ spry Symphony no. 1. The “Heroes” concert fuses instrumentals with the keening of the chorus in Dvorak’s “Te Deum,” preceding the concert’s eponymously titled composition from modern master Philip Glass, known for challenging audiences with exultant chords and complex theorems hidden in his music. The angelic voices of a chorus shroud the stage in euphony during “Together In Song,” a triple bill of compositions from Stephen Paulus, Gwyneth Walker, and Samuel Barber. Ringing in the New Year is the GSO composers concert, which stages self-aware tunes such as “The Most Often Used Chords” and “I Play, Therefore I Am.”
Though the Georgia Symphony Orchestra offers discounts for students and seniors, this Groupon offers the best deal available for most people.
