A Tempo: Preserving the History of the Atlanta Symphony

Sep 23, 2017

The Atlanta Symphony Orchestra last month announced that it had transferred its archives to Georgia State University Library's Special Collection and Archives. The collection includes programs, newspaper clippings, photographs, business documents and a host of other memorabilia tracing the orchestra's 73-year history.

A Tempo this week (9/23) will delve into those archives in a conversation with Bob Scarr, who has worked with the symphony's archives since 2010, and Kevin Fleming, archivist of the Popular Music and Culture Collection at GSU. You can hear that conversation this Saturday at 7 pm.
