The Atlanta Symphony Orchestra is one of the finest musical ensembles you'll find in the entire country, offering an array of concerts you and your family can enjoy. Their concerts at the Atlanta Symphony Hall offer a few different genres including family-oriented shows.

Anyone who loves music will find fun at this orchestra's concerts, though some shows will certainly be more appealing than others to some. Classical music fans who are adults may not enjoy a family show by themselves as much. Most concerts last about 90 minutes to two hours in total.

Atlanta Symphony Orchestra highlights

When you see an Atlanta Symphony Orchestra concert, you'll find yourself experiencing one of four distinct genres. Classical music is their primary genre, of course, but you'll also find special family concerts. Additionally, popular music and holiday music are performed at certain events throughout the year.

Part of the fun of seeing a concert is dissecting the musical pieces. Classical music is often recognisable from films, television shows, and even lifts in some cases. Find out what sounds and melodies you can pick out, and determine when different characters or instruments are used for a similar sound.

Good to know when visiting Atlanta Symphony Orchestra

Before you visit the Atlanta Symphony Orchestra, there are some things you need to know. Unlike many other orchestral concerts, you don't have to deal with a dress code here. Some people like to dress up while others are more comfortable in jeans or khakis.

To get the most out of your experience, it's generally best to arrive about 20 minutes before showtime. That way, you can find your seat in time and relax a bit before everything starts. Plus, if you're late, you won't be allowed in until an usher can bring you to your seat when there's a pause in the programme.
