ATLANTA SYMPHONY ORCHESTRA: Celebrating its 76th season, the Grammy award winning Atlanta Symphony Orchestra continues to affirm its position as one of America's leading orchestras with excellent live performances, impressive guest artists, renowned chorus and engaging education initiatives, all under music director Robert Spano and principal guest conductor Donald Runnicles. The orchestra and audiences together explore a creative programming mix, recording and visual enhancements, such as theatre of a concert. The Atlanta school of composers reflects music director Robert Spano and the orchestra's commitment to nurturing and championing music through multi-year partnerships defining a new generation of American composers. As the cornerstone for artistic development in the southeast, the Atlanta symphony orchestra performs more than 150 concerts each year in symphony hall, as well as venues across the state of Georgia, including educational and community concerts, for a combined audience of more than half a million people.
ALLIANCE THEATRE: Founded in 1968, the Alliance Theatre is the leading producing theatre in the southeast, creating the powerful experience of shared theatre for diverse people. Under the leadership of Susan V. Booth, Jennings Hertz Artistic Director, the Alliance Theatre received the regional theatre Tony Award in recognition of sustained excellence in programming education, and community engagement. Reaching more than 165,000 patrons annually, the Alliance delivers powerful programming that challenges adult and youth audiences to think critically and care deeply. Known for its high artistic standards and national role in creating significant theatrical works, the Alliance has launched Tony Award-winning hits to Broadway and national tours. Each year, the education department, comprised of the Alliance Theatre Institute, Bernhardt Theatre for the Very Young (audiences 18 months - 5 years), Theatre for Youth and Families Series (audiences K-12), and the acting program, serves more than 90,000 students, educators, and families through in-school residency initiatives, performances, acting classes, and drama camps. Programs that serve our community include the Palefsky Collision Project, Georgia Wolf Trap Early Learning through Arts, and Alliance @Work. The Alliance also nurtures the careers of playwrights and emerging theatre artists through the Alliance/Kendeda National Graduate Playwriting Competition and the Reiser Atlanta Artists Lab.
HIGH MUSEUM OF ART: The High Museum of Art is located in the heart of Atlanta. The High Museum of Art connects with audiences from across the Southeast and around the world through its distinguished collection, dynamic schedule of special exhibitions and engaging community-focused programs. Housed within facilities designed by Pritzker Prize-winning architects Richard Meier and Renzo Piano, the High features a collection of more than 18,000 works of art, including an extensive anthology of 19th- and 20th-century American Fine and Decorative Arts; major holdings of Photography and Folk and Self-taught work, especially that of artists from the American South; burgeoning collections of Modern and Contemporary Art, including paintings, sculpture, new media and design; a growing collection of African Art, with work dating from prehistory through the present; and significant holdings of European paintings and works on paper.
