Whitt Locke will be guest conducting. Amy Wilson is the APO Artistic Director.
Join us for Christmas on Medlock, our annual joint holiday concert with Atlanta Philharmonic Orchestra and the Balcony Choir of North Decatur Presbyterian Church (NDPC). Along with holiday favorites, we will be performing a world premiere of a Stephen Wood piece called ‘The Absaroka’, and a romance by Dvorak. The concert is free, but seats are limited, so come early!
Amy Wilson, APO Artistic Director and Clint Miller, Music Minister for NDPC will be conducting.
Join the APO for the first concert of our 15th season! Who’s on First will feature Mozart, Rossini, and Dvorak. These pieces were chosen because they are the first of their kind. Rossini’s Overture to Barber of Seville was the first piece the APO performed on the first concert in 2005. Mozart’s Bassoon Concerto was one of the first bassoon concertos by a major composer. Dvorak’s Symphony No. 6 was initially published as Symphony. No. 1, put Dvorak on the scene as a major symphonic composer.
Amy Wilson is the APO Artistic Director.
