Symphony Social Time

Symphony Socials
Ahhh. I love the Symphony. The sounds and the sights inspire me to pick my own cello back up and practice. Kind of. Too bad I am lazy and mostly just like listening to others play rather than tune up and play my own instrument :P

Luckily for me, there are a lot of other people out there like me that love just seeing and listening to the Symphony. Here in Atlanta, the Atlanta Symphony Orchestra regularly features events made just for the young professional crowd. Prices are cheap, seats are good and all the events include a drink or two, too :)

If you are looking for things to do this week and are interested in a little culture time at the Symphony, the ASO has one of these events lined up just for you! Check out the full details below. And maybe, just maybe, you will be inspired to create some music of your own, too.

Symphony Socials — Evenings for Young Professionals

Come join us for the first Symphony Social of the 2011-12 season! This is a great opportunity for you to not only connect through great music, but also to socialize and connect with each other. It's about the entire experience that's a step above the typical night out — remember to bring your business cards for networking and to enter in the raffle for prizes. Come early for backstage tours!
