The Atlanta Chamber Players begin their 45th season Friday (October 23) with a program featuring the music of Beethoven and David Kirkland Garner at the First Presbyterian Church of Atlanta. The concert will be livestreamed and host a limited in-person audience. The group will debut two world premieres by Garner, an Atlanta composer. The chamber players will feature Alcides Rodriguez on clarinet, Helen Hwaya Kim on violin, Brad Ritchie on cello, Andrew Brady on bassoon, Susan Welty on horns and Julie Coucheron on piano. The free concert begins at 8 p.m.
In times like these, when we are separated by necessity, ArtsATL is needed more than ever. Please consider a donation so we can continue to highlight Atlanta’s creative community.
