The Concert Band presents an evening of music from film, including a special focus on productions filmed right here in Atlanta! The program spans the decades from "Gone With the Wind" to "The Hunger Games", visiting a number of blockbuster and award winning films along the way. We have music of John Williams, Henry Mancini, and Alan Silvestri in store as well as a special visit from a terrifyingly radioactive Japanese dinosaur.
The concert will be even more "EPIC" because we are inviting musicians from our sister bands across the region to join us for the first-ever Southeastern Regional event for the Lesbian and Gay Band Association. The performing ensemble could top 100 musicians!
Tickets are available in advance from the AFB Ticket Shop.
Parking for the event is available in the Hotel's parking garage or nearby surface lots. The hotel is only 200 feet from the North Avenue MARTA station (N3). Check itsmarta.com to plan your schedule. The hotel's new restaurant FIRST has just opened for those who would like to enjoy a lovely dinner before the show. In addition, there will be a cash bar during the show.
Be on the lookout for our concert Facebook event soon so you can follow all the latest details for the show and invite your friends.
"Hooray for Y'allywood!" is supported in part by the Atlanta Mayor‘s Office of Cultural Affairs. Funding for this program is also provided by the Fulton County Board of Commissioners under the guidance of the Fulton County Arts Council.
We have even more great concerts and events coming in 2016. Check out our Performances page for all the details on the shows and find out about our great deals on season ticket packages!
A standing ovation to all our AFB Fans and Friends! Your generosity on Georgia Gives Day propelled us to EXCEED our fundraising goal. AFB had the second highest total of any orchestral group in the state! AFB received a total of $3,100 in donations that we will put to work in all four of our ensembles throughout the coming year. Our AFB musicians are all volunteers, giving their time and talent each week. Having the support of wonderful people like you adds to the joy of making music in and representing our community.
If you missed Georgia Gives Day, you still have time to make your donation before the year ends. Just visit our Donation Page to make a one-time donation or set up a recurring gift to support AFB throughout the year. We will recognize your donation in our concert programs as another way to say thanks.
