Atlanta Symphony Orchestra
Donald Runnicles, conductor
Michelle Cann, piano


March 4, 2022 | 8:00 pm

Florence Price was the first female African-American composer to achieve widespread national attention and the first to have a symphony performed by a major orchestra. Celebrated concert pianist and Curtis Institute faculty member Michelle Cann brings her “exquisite…technical sparkle and probing humanity of Price’s writing” (Philadelphia Inquirer) to UGA Presents for her debut with the Atlanta Symphony Orchestra. The orchestra then plays Mahler’s Symphony No. 1, a grand and ambitious work in four movements that evokes the sounds of the mountains, a folk dance, a funeral march, and offers up an impressively regal climax.

Pre-performance talk in Ramsey Concert Hall at 7:15 pm (free admission).
