Atlanta Music Festival Honors Regional Heritage

Nov 7, 2016

The Atlanta Music Festival begins Nov. 14.  It features days of workshops and performances to celebrate the region's musical and cultural heritage with a focus on African-American traditions.

The Atlanta Music Festival will culminate with a gala concert.  Singer Jessye Norman will perform, and Pulitzer Prize-winner Taylor Branch will also take part.

WABE’s Amy Kiley previewed the festival with Music Director Steven Darsey.  To make their interview a bit more musical, they structured their conversation around a choral work commissioned for the festival.  Click on the interview to hear a preview of that work.

Most Atlanta Music Festival events are free and open to the public.  You can find out more at
