####Georgia Symphony Orchestra
When the Marietta Concert Orchestra began in 1951, the acoustics of its performance space weren’t as impressive as they are today. Founded in the music room of the Moor family’s home, the orchestra’s skill and reputation increased until it had outgrown both its location and its name. Now performing most regularly at the Marietta Performing Arts Center, the Georgia Symphony Orchestra is often joined by the GSO Chorus, which sings pieces such as Carmina Burana so the violinists don’t have to use Frampton-style effects pedals.
