Description

We conclude our season with another performance at First Presbyterian Church of Atlanta, highlighted by the ever-popular Rhapsody in Blue by George Gershwin in a version for string quintet and piano. To continue the jazz theme, we will also include the innovative and exuberant piano trio Café Music by American composer Paul Schoenfield. To round out the program, we will present First Presbyterian’s Director of Worship and the Arts and Organist Jens Korndoerfer alongside ASO Principal Harpist Elisabeth Remy Johnson and Atlanta Opera Principal Cellist Charae Krueger in a stunning arrangement of Max Bruch’s Kol Nedrei.
