• More Than Music

    An Athens Symphony concert is not just a chance to hear beautifully performed works by the greatest composers. It’s an opportunity for family entertainment, neighborhood fellowship, and a shared community experience. It’s a chance to celebrate Athens' renown symphony where first-class musicians, driven by their passion and love for music, share their gifts with their community. Our 41st season continues this steadfast commitment to be More Than Music.
