TICKET PRICE: adult: $40, student: $15

The Atlanta Pops Orchestra continues its 75+ year journey in 2023 by enriching communities throughout the southeast with live performances of popular orchestral music. By collaborating with guest artists from a variety of popular music styles, as well as presenting exhilarating performances featuring the orchestra’s musicians, the Atlanta Pops Orchestra engages diverse audiences with moving musical experiences. With instrumentation that combines the four sections of a classical orchestra—strings, woodwinds, brass, and percussion—with a jazz/pop rhythm section of piano, bass, and drums, the Atlanta Pops Orchestra brings to life music that inspires and excites people of all ages and backgrounds.

Scottish singer/songwriter and multi-instrumentalist, Griogair Labhruidh is a contemporary, experimental recording artist strongly rooted in tradition. Coming from a long line of Highland musicians, his music stems from a quest to express his insights and ideas about belonging, nature, and creativity in a modern musical context whilst paying homage to his own heritage. Griogair is uniquely able to traverse largely untrodden ground combining Gaelic music with influences as eclectic as funk, soul, African music, hip hop and jazz.
