The second half of Augusta Symphony’s season will open with events that draw on music with raw power as well as the soothing sound of an iconic American crooner.
In its Persevere concert, scheduled for 7:30 p.m. Saturday, January 8 at Miller Theater, the symphony will perform Tchaikovsky’s Voyevoda, Op. 78; Leshnoff’s Symphony No. 4, which is making its Georgia premiere; and Beethoven’s Symphony No. 5. Tickets are $23 – $71.
On Saturday, January 22, 2022, maestro Dirk Meyer and the symphony will perform the music of the Chairman of the Board, Frank Sinatra, at the symphony’s annual gala.
The black tie event kicks off at 6:30 p.m. at the Miller, where attendees can enjoy specialty boxed appetizers and an open bar. The concert begins at 7:30 p.m. when guest artist Michael Andrew joins the orchestra to bring the sounds of Sinatra to life.
After the performance, the celebration will continue with an evening of heavy hors d’oeuvres, desserts, a full bar, dancing and raffle prizes that include a Belize beach trip, a Recteq wood pellet grill and a “Dinner’s on Us” bundle of gift certificates to popular Augusta restaurants.
The gala is the symphony’s sole fundraiser of the year. Tickets are $125 – $250.
