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 atlantamusicfestival.org.
