How Delta CLASSIC CHASTAIN Became Atlanta’s Musical Pastime


(continued from page 9)

The concert experience at the ASO’s Delta Classic Chastain is a very special one. Concertgoers often arrive an hour or more early, with picnic gear in tow. Friends greet each other while setting up for an alfresco dinner. Once the music gets underway, chairs are turned to face the stage, and conversation drops to a minimum as everyone enjoys a concert in the gathering twilight. The light from candles on tables throughout the audience gives a magical glow to the evening. Onstage, the ASO may be hosting anyone from George Benson to the Indigo Girls. Atlanta’s favorite summer entertainment venue is once again in full swing in a summer of celebration.

Allison Vulgamore Dear Friends,


Welcome! This summer at Chastain Park Amphitheater marks the Atlanta Symphony Orchestra’s 35th season of bringing you one of the most unique and treasured concert experiences in the Southeast. During that time the ASO’s Delta Classic Chastain series has become more than simply a tradition but a beloved ritual of summer in Atlanta. Who knew 35 years ago when the popular singer Frankie Lane took the Chastain stage with the ASO and conductor Richard Hayman that the series would become such a vital part of the Orchestra’s life and identity. But, the myriad charms of Chastain opened a new door for the ASO, introducing the joys of light classical music within a pop context to people across Atlanta and around the Southeast. Visitors were entranced by the amphitheater’s ambience – nestled in a picturesque, unspoiled environment surrounded by the lush trees that distinguish Atlanta – and audiences loved hearing the ASO in a dressed down setting. A brief history of the Orchestra’s role at Chastain appears on page 8. To everyone’s delight the series became a hit with Atlanta audiences and now these many years later the ASO performs and presents 27 to 28 concerts each summer at Chastain averaging more than 100,000 patrons. Today, Chastain continues to draw acclaim as the quintessential Atlanta concert venue. Annually voted “Atlanta’s Favorite Concert Experience” by readers of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution and Creative Loafing, the ASO’s Delta Classic Chastain series is flourishing anew under General Manager Clay Schell who knows our city well from the many years he has worked in Atlanta as a presenter and promoter. The Orchestra has many to thank for its success at Chastain beginning with our sponsors who make it all possible. We also greatly appreciate the City of Atlanta, the Chastain Neighborhood Association and the Chastain Park Conservancy, which have worked with the Orchestra over the years to ensure the best experience for audiences. Additionally, we value the cooperation of Live Nation, our business venture partners at Chastain. But most of all we thank you, our patrons at Chastain – from our loyal table subscribers to the first-time single ticket buyers. We thank you for your patronage in years past and for the summer ahead. We’re glad you are with us and 35 years of success later it’s a wonderful truth to say ‘we couldn’t have done it without you.’ Warmest regards,

Allison Vulgamore President and Chief Executive Officer  Encore Atlanta

A Lifetime of Care

Laurie had her youngest daughter, Karleigh, at Northside Hospital in 1994 and returned when doctors discovered acute myeloid leukemia in 2002. After exploring treatment options across the country, Laurie turned to her hometown hospital for the latest chemotherapy and bone marrow transplant technology. You may know Northside as the place for babies, but the hospital also is No. 1 in Georgia for diagnosing and treating cancer.

How Delta


Became Atlanta’s

This month the Atlanta Symphony Orchestra and thousands of music lovers begin a summer-long toast to the 35TH ANNIVERSARY of the ASO’s groundbreaking summer series, Delta Classic Chastain. However, the story of Chastain and the cornerstone amphitheater that has become synonymous with great music in the great outdoors was first written during the height of World War II, three decades before the ASO played its first note at the historic park. In June of 1944, as the Atlanta Public Schools and the Atlanta Music Club were just beginning to lay plans for the Youth Symphony that would become the Atlanta Symphony Orchestra, a new outdoor concert facility was unveiled in what was then called North Fulton Park. Developed by Fulton County under the supervision of Troy Chastain, head of the county’s public buildings and grounds committee, the park was begun in the late 1930s by the federal Works Progress Administration. The amphitheater was constructed of concentric rings of Georgia granite and built for about $300,000. After Troy Chastain’s death the park was renamed in his memory. But concerts were few and sparsely attended and the county considered tearing out the seats and building amusement rides and a swimming pool on the site. The amphitheater’s fortunes began to turn around when the City of Atlanta annexed Chastain Memorial Park in 1952. The city, which has now owned the amphitheater for over 55 years and has supported — and worked handin-hand with — the ASO to grow

the Orchestra’s presence every step of the way, sponsored free concerts by bands, choral groups, and popular performers, beginning with a concert by Albert Coleman’s Atlanta Pops Orchestra before an overflow crowd estimated at 9,000. Coleman performed regularly at Chastain for more than 20 years. Theater Under the Stars presented operettas and musical comedies here beginning in 1953. The first offering was The Desert Song by Sigmund Romberg, beginning a Chastain tradition that lasted a decade and a half. The Chastain Amphitheater has received improvements constantly since its earliest days and greatly benefited from the establishment of Chastain Ventures, Inc., a joint venture of the ASO and Live Nation, Inc., which facilitates the park’s operation under the auspices of the City of Atlanta. The builders of the original might have trouble recognizing the present facility, with its permanent seat backs, state of the art sound and lighting systems, huge monitors flanking the stage, expanded parking, the exclusive Club Chastain, and many more amenities. The biggest enhancements from an artist’s perspective have been expanded backstage areas, improved dressing rooms, and a roof over the entire stage. (continued on page 11)

music director

Robert Spano


obert Spano is among the most innovative and imaginative conductors of his generation. Now in his seventh season as Music Director of the Atlanta Symphony Orchestra, Mr. Spano’s arrival heralded an exciting, new era – the Creative Partnership, a collaborative approach with Principal Guest Conductor Donald Runnicles and President and Managing Director Allison Vulgamore to major artistic and programming decisions – that has enriched the Orchestra’s repertoire and elevated it to greater prominence. A highly sought after guest conductor, Mr. Spano has conducted the major orchestras of North America, including those in Boston, Chicago, Cleveland, Los Angeles, New York, Philadelphia and San Francisco. Internationally, he has led the Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra, Orchestra Filarmonica della Scala, Czech Philharmonic, Berlin Radio Sinfonie Orchestra, BBC Scottish and BBC Symphony Orchestras, City of Birmingham Symphony Orchestra, New Japan Philharmonic and Oslo Philharmonic. Mr. Spano has appeared with the opera companies of Chicago, Houston and Santa Fe, and at the Royal Opera at Covent Garden and Welsh National Opera. In August 2005, he conducted three consecutive cycles of Wagner’s Der Ring des Nibelungen at Seattle Opera, and returns to conduct the Ring in 2009. This season’s Atlanta programs reflect Mr. Spano’s broad and diverse repertoire as well as his commitment to living composers, opening with La bohème, and including masterworks of Tchaikovsky, Rachmaninoff, Sibelius and Ravel, whose Daphnis et Chloé will be featured in the orchestra’s April 2008 return to Carnegie Hall. Important commissions include works from Gonzalo Grau, Behzad Ranjbaran and Wynton Marsalis, as well as works by John Adams, Jennifer Higdon, Osvaldo Golijov and Christopher Theofanidis, composers closely associated with Mr. Spano and the ASO. The ASO’s distinguished recording legacy with Telarc continues to flourish with Mr. Spano. Their discography includes music of Del Tredici, Theofanidis, Higdon and Gandolfi, Sibelius’ Kullervo, and the Grammy Awardwinning recordings of Vaughan Williams’s A Sea Symphony and Berlioz’s Requiem. Mr. Spano and the ASO also recently recorded two discs of the music of Golijov for Deutsche Grammophon: one including Three Songs and Oceana, and the other, Ainadamar, which was awarded two Grammys. 12 Encore Atlanta

Live at 35! Classic Chastain celebrates a major anniversary as Atlanta’s longest-running hit By Jonathan Williams


elebrating its 35th season this summer, the Atlanta Symphony Orchestra’s Delta Classic Chastain series continues to bring some of the top musical talent of yesterday and today to one of the coziest outdoor settings in Atlanta. And this year’s lineup looks to be one of the most diverse ever, with something for almost any musical palette. Getting things off to a sultry start will be trumpeter Chris Botti with singer Paula Cole on June 14. Though he’s typically classified as a jazz instrumentalist, Botti’s latest release Italia has a more operatic feel to it. And if smooth instrumental sounds are what you’re looking for, world famous saxophonist Kenny G will be performing on June 25. Fusing flamenco and salsa with pop sensibilities, the French group the Gipsy Kings returns on Aug. 9.

George Benson with Earl Klugh and the ASO A Tribute to the Music of Nat King Cole

This concert is sponsored by:

Atlanta’s Performing Arts Publication 23


GEORGE BENSON Appreciated as both a musician and performer by millions, George Benson has always had the dual role of expert improviser and vibrant entertainer. He has consistently placed his keenly discerning art in the service of a rousing good time. Rounding out his singular approach with sly, seductive rhythm and blues, he’s earned himself an impeccable reputation as one of music’s most enterprising and engaging stars. Few might have predicted that striking level of stardom some 40 years ago, when Benson was a fledgling guitarist working the corner pubs of his native Pittsburgh. “I was an entertainer first,” he says proudly. “As a kid, I sang, danced, and played the ukulele in a nightclub. As my career has progressed, I’ve had the pleasure of playing with the baddest jazz cats on the planet. But that doesn’t change my desire to entertain folks. That’s really who I am.” It was Wes Montgomery, one of jazz’s most creative players, who came across Benson early on; the vet complimented the young guitarist, urging him to continue his already impressive work. In the early 1960s, Benson apprenticed with organist Brother Jack McDuff; he found the organist’s gritty swing a fertile ground for the sly, confident and adventurous guitar lines, which earned him an early rep as a master. Montgomery had called one of his best records Boss Guitar. Benson had both the conviction and chops to nip at his hero’s heels; his 1964 debut was released as The New Boss Guitar. It lived up to its title. Benson’s tone was juicy, and his blues solos sparkled with a carefully honed logic. A jaunty funk and swing aesthetic prevailed. “I’d sat down with a great blind pianist from San Francisco named Freddy Gambrel,” recalls Benson. “He turned me on to some wonderful ways to get in and out of chord changes and weld harmonies together. Of course I still wanted to be like Charlie Christian, Django Reinhardt and Hank Garland – my heroes. I’ve always liked the hot guitar guys.” Playing the combination won Benson access to all sorts of arenas. His work was boundless: in the late ’60s he sat in on heady Miles Davis sessions, and also put a personal spin on the tunes from the Beatles’ Abbey Road. 24 Encore Atlanta

earl klugh An acoustic guitarist with a very pretty tone, Earl Klugh does not consider himself a jazz player and thinks of Chet Atkins as being his most important influence. Klugh played on a Yusef Lateef album when he was 15 and gained recognition in 1971 for his contributions to George Benson’s White Rabbit record. He played regularly with Benson in 1973, was a member of Return to Forever briefly in 1974 and, in the mid-’70s, began recording as a leader. After a couple well-received solo albums on different Capitol imprints including Blue Note, Klugh hit pay dirt with 1979’s One on One, a Grammy Award-winning collaboration with pianist Bob James. More solo albums followed before the sequel to One on One, Two of a Kind, appeared in 1982. In 1984, he changed labels and released one of his most popular albums, Soda Fountain Shuffle, on Warner Brothers. Klugh made his biggest artistic impression yet in 1989 with the self-explanatory Solo Guitar. Two years later he would return to the “serious jazz” repertoire of Solo Guitar, but this time with bassist Ralphe Armstrong and drummer Gene Dunlap on the acoustic bebop outing The Earl Klugh Trio, Vol. 1. Cool (1992) found him working with Bob James again and was followed by three more smooth releases for the Warner Brothers family before the jump was made to Windham Hill with 1999’s Peculiar Situation. Compilations, live albums, appearances with others and reissues filled the years leading up to 2005’s Naked Guitar, a stripped down, standards-heavy album for the Koch label. The Spice of Life followed in 2008. Source: Atlanta’s Atlanta’sPerforming PerformingArts ArtsPublication Publication 25 25


“The first time I tried to sing along with my guitar, everybody in the studio booed. They all said that it wouldn’t work. When I got with Tommy LiPuma all that changed. He said ‘Sure, let’s go with some vocals, see where we get.’ And you know what happened after that.” What happened was Breezin’, the first jazz record to attain platinum sales. The 1976 blockbuster, his first in a long association with Warner Bros. Records, brought the instrumental title track to jazz radio. And Benson’s soulful update of Leon Russell’s “This Masquerade,” which featured the guitarist scatting along with his solo break, was a pop smash. He followed up with many pop hits, including a sultry version of “On Broadway” and the irresistible “Give Me The Night,” which thrilled many a dancer. Benson was a superstar.

Kenny G

This concert is sponsored by:

26 Encore Atlanta

Kenny G, the world’s most renowned saxophonist, has just released his first Latin Jazz album, Rhythm & Romance, backed by some of the world’s finest Latin musicians. The result is a rich, one-of-a-kind tapestry of samba and salsa, ballads and bossa nova, all of which are held together by beautiful melodies of Kenny G’s signature sound. The album is a collection of new songs and beloved classics that are rhythmically rooted in two disparate sounds resulting in a completely original and moving work. “Musically, this is nothing like I have ever done before,” says Kenny. This is remarkable, considering for the past two decades Kenny has established himself as the biggest-selling instrumental musician of the modern era, with global sales totaling more than 75 million albums, with 45 million albums sold in the U.S. alone. Yet, for Rhythm & Romance, Kenny ventures into uncharted creative territory and is having the time of his life crafting a lively album, one that speaks to exactly why a young Kenny Gorelick of Seattle, Wash., who discovered the saxophone one evening while watching the Ed Sullivan show, was inspired to pick up the instrument in the first place. “Everyone loves the rhythm of Latin music,” says Kenny. “It makes you feel good; it makes you want to dance. At the same time, it is very intimate and personal.” Enamored with the rhythm of Latin music, Kenny and longtime collaborator and producer Walter Afanasieff (Mariah Carey, Barbara Streisand, Celine Dion) set out to find the right instrumentation and arrangements for the romantic Latin melodies that have been swirling around saxophonist’s head for months. Together they have assembled an all-star line-up of Latin musicians including guitarist Ramon Stagnaro, percussionists Michito Sanchez, Paulino Da Costa, Ron Powell and legendary drummer Alex Acuña (Weather Report). The album also features guest vocals by rising Chilean star Barbara Munoz and Spanish-speaking pop/rock sensation, Camila. “It’s really about two different music styles coming together to create something completely new,” says Kenny. “The sound of my music is very distinct and so is the sound of these extraordinary musicians. They bring the rhythm and I’m the romance,” the saxophonist jokes. Atlanta’s Performing Arts Publication 27

Emmylou Harris with Sam Bush, Jimmy Gaudreau and Moondi Klein

28 Encore Atlanta

“Most of my career,” says Emmylou Harris, “I’ve been a finder of songs, a gatherer of songs, so this showcases, in part, that side of what I do.” All I Intended To Be, its simple but evocative title borrowed from the lyric of a Billy Joe Shaver song, does far more than that. Her first solo album since 2003’s Stumble Into Grace, it is indeed a catalogue of Harris’s many gifts. She is an interpreter, eloquent composer and inveterate musical explorer who’s been able to discover, rescue and/or give new life to many a beautiful but overlooked country, bluegrass or folk tunes. The album also offers a living portrait of Harris, a recounting of her extraordinary history through the many musicians and fellow singers she has collaborated with since the start of her solo career, many of whom make appearances on these tracks. The all-star cast includes Dolly Parton, Vince Gill, the McGarrigle sisters, old friends from the Seldom Scene, Glenn D. Hardin of her legendary Hot Band, as well as some of the most versatile studio players around. It’s produced by Brian Ahern and engineered by Donivan Cowart, both of whom collaborated with Harris on such groundbreaking albums as Elite Hotel, Luxury Liner and Blue Kentucky Girl. Harris admits she had to grab studio time in between all of her other projects and commitments – hitting the road with Neil Young and Elvis Costello, cutting All the Roadrunning and performing live with Mark Knopfler, assembling her Songbird boxed set of rarities, and going out with Patty Griffin, Shawn Colvin and Buddy Miller for their Three Girls and a Buddy Tour. Yet All I Intended To Be, recorded in Nashville and Los Angeles between October 2005 and March 2008, manages to have a seamless quality. The songs range in tone from the intimate to the anthemic, united by Harris’s ability to channel the emotions of so many compelling characters. There’s grit, sadness, and just a touch of regret in tracks like Mark Germino’s “Broken Man’s Lament” and Merle Haggard’s “Kern River” that’s balanced by strength, wisdom and a healthy amount of hindsight on Tracy Chapman’s “All That You Have Is Your Soul” and Jude Johnson’s “Hold On.” Harris’s own “Take That Ride” is a forthright conversation with a God who may or may not be listening. By the time All I Intended To Be reaches a wistful but uplifting conclusion with “Beyond the Great Divide,” it’s tugging the soul as deeply as the heart. – Michael Hill Atlanta’s Performing Arts Publication 29


Emmylou Harris


sam bush Though he admits a certain discomfort with the moniker “King of Newgrass,” Sam Bush has more than earned it. As cofounder and leader of the seminal progressive bluegrass band New Grass Revival through 18 years during the 1970s and ’80s, Bush may not be the only person responsible for newgrass, the wild bluegrass stepchild that features rock ‘n’ roll grooves and extended virtuosic jams, but since New Grass Revival’s dissolution in 1989, Bush has certainly been one of the most brilliant of newgrass’s many bright lights. Besides helming the ever-popular Sam Bush Band, featured on the new release Laps in Seven, the mandolin prodigy from Kentucky has been a prodigious influence on musicians young and old. Bands like Nickel Creek, Yonder Mountain String Band and String Cheese Incident, to name just a few, are indebted to Bush’s example, not only in his wide-ranging choice of material and rock-based acoustic grooves, but by his captivating, high-energy live shows, which have made him an in demand headliner, and fan fave at important festivals like Telluride and MerleFest. When not heading his own band, Bush has spent the past 15 years as a supersideman with the likes of Emmylou Harris, Lyle Lovett and the Flecktones; spearheaded boundary-stretching collaborations with Edgar Meyer, Mark O’Connor and David Grisman; and driven nearly every “bluegrass supergroup” imaginable with his inimitable mandolin playing. “I wanted to try something different,” Bush says of how he approached the new record, inadvertently defining his lifelong approach to music. “I wanted to shake things up a bit while still displaying the live sound of the road band.” Bush’s band is a tight crew of Nashville’s most in-demand studio musicians, including (previous 2005) guitarist Keith Sewell (Stephen Mougin has joined the band since the recording was made as guitar picker/harmony vocalist), Byron House on bass, Chris Brown on drums and banjoist Scott Vestal. Vestal’s presence marks one of the striking differences that Bush was aiming for. His dynamic, inventive playing will certainly remind listeners of the last days of New Grass Revival, which, of course, featured a young Béla Fleck. “I can’t tell you how much I love playing with Scott,” Sam says of his most recent banjo buddy. “He can play everything, but he doesn’t feel compelled to put it in every song.”

Jimmy Gaudreau has been one of the premier sidemen, in demand for the more than 39 years he has spent as a professional musician. His first break came in 1969, when he replaced John Duffey as the mandolin player/tenor singer in The Country Gentlemen. During his time with the “Gents,” he participated in three recording projects, the last of which included the celebrated Country Gentlemen version of “Fox On The Run.” Other bands that Jimmy has been involved with after leaving the Country Gentlemen in 1971 include IInd Generation with Eddie Adcock, the popular Washington-based band Country Store with Keith Whitley, J.D. Crowe and The New South, Spectrum with Bela Fleck, a nine-year association with The Tony Rice Unit, Robin and Linda Williams and Their Fine group, and, most recently, John Starling and Carolina Star – frequently the back-up band for Emmylou Harris. Jimmy along with Moondi, was a founding member of the band Chesapeake, which rocked the bluegrass world when it came on the scene in the early ’90s. Moondi Klein grew up in Manhattan and, along with his brother Adam, joined the Metropolitan Opera’s Children’s Chorus before they were 10 years old. He remained there through his mid-teens. While on a trip to The Carter “fold” in southwest Virginia with his dad, who worked with The Rockefeller Foundation awarding grants, Moondi got his first taste of mountain music … and hasn’t looked back since. He learned to play the guitar and banjo and, after studying music in college, moved to the Washington, D.C., area and helped form Rock Creek, gaining recognition for his outstanding vocal skills. Later, he replaced John Starling as lead singer with The Seldom Scene and eventually went on to help form Chesapeake with Jimmy, Mike Auldridge and T. Michael Coleman. Chesapeake’s three CDs on the Sugar Hill label gained critical acclaim, and the “duo” features a number of that group’s most requested tunes as well as bluegrass and folk standards … and oh yes, a few hot-picking instrumentals!

Edwin McCain Band with Meghan Coffee and the ASO

32 Encore Atlanta

Edwin McCain is happy. Life’s been good to him and he is very much obliged. Millions of albums sold. Hit songs that never leave the radio airwaves. An unwavering fanbase that keeps him on tour more days out of the year than not. And – surprising even Edwin himself – not one, but two of the most enduring wedding songs on the circuit, his earnest and soulful delivery unlikely standouts amongst all the other contrived wedding fare. So, when it came to recording a new album, Edwin wanted to share the songs he loves and that make him happy, hoping listeners will take a few moments along the way to discover, rediscover and savor some of the best vintage soul and R&B songs ever written. So why would McCain – someone who has considerable talent at writing his own songs – choose to do an album (Nobody’s Fault But Mine) – of other peoples’ work? “For me, it was an absolute blast,” he says. “It was so much fun taking a break from staring into my own bellybutton, playing, singing, interpreting other people’s songs just for the fun of it. Purely for the joy of doing it.” The idea for Nobody’s Fault But Mine had been simmering for quite some time. “I had a conversation with my friend Kevn Kinney (of Drivin’ ‘n’ Cryin’) about five or six years ago, who said ‘you need to get a smoking band together and make a soul music album like James Brown,’ and I loved it.” Then last year, out of the blue, Edwin was invited by producer Tor Hyams (Joan Osborne, Tricky) to do just that. They enlisted Steve Cropper, one of the architects of the Stax sound and a founding member of Booker T. and the MG’s, as well as Joan Osborne (“I’ve Got Dreams To Remember”) and Ivan Neville to join Larry Chaney (guitar), Manolo Yanes (bass), Eddie Bayers (drums), Doug Moffet and Craig Shields (saxophones), Quentin Ware (trumpet), Steve Pierson (acoustic guitar on “Good Times”), and C.C. White and Chasen Hampton (background vocals) in the studio. While radio fans may know McCain best for his smash hits “I’ll Be,” “I Could Not Ask For More” and “Solitude,” the singer/songwriter paid his dues in full by touring relentlessly early in his career. After releasing seven albums and selling over 2 million copies, he continues to perform hundreds of concerts throughout the country each year. “The album’s not meant to be heavy or overly contemplative,” sums up Edwin. “With everything that seems to be going on in the world, it’s nice to smile once in a while.” Atlanta’s Performing Arts Publication 33


Edwin McCain


meghan coffee Standing between pop, indie rock and a hint of folkadelica, Meghan Coffee’s visual lyrics and compelling melodies have been described by enthusiasts as, “mesmerizing,” “soulful” and “electrifying.” Whether it’s the stripped down dynamic girl-and-her-piano show, or the ‘rockstravaganza’ with her Band of Brethren, a live Meghan Coffee performance is not easily forgotten. Meghan’s soon-to-be released album, All Things Being Said, is her first full-length studio record, and was produced by Geoff Melkonian (Modern Skirts, Five Eight, Josh Joplin Group). Meghan and the producer had nearly 70 songs to choose from for the making of the record, as writing a song a week is the standard for Coffee. From the haunting and soaring “Parasol” which details the veil of depression rooted in an unrequited love, to the cleverly insightful lyricism and pop-sensibility behind “Poster Child” (Toast of the town/ You make it much better/ For the butter of praise/ They spread over you anyway), Meghan’s signature style, versatility and prolific writing skills are evident. Having recently captured the imagination of the music community through national touring and several television performances, Meghan is proving herself worthy of the sudden burst of attention. She twice has played to crowds of over 10,000 at Piedmont Park in her hometown of Atlanta. Additionally, among televised performances, including TBS Storyline and Comcast Cable’s Bands On Demand, she was featured on Turner South’s “Music Road” series, a television show hosted by Edwin McCain. Music was ever-present in her home, and the Beatles, Billy Joel and songs sung on Broadway made strong impressions that still have a presence in Meghan’s songs. Meghan began songwriting regularly at age eight, when a friend gave the family an old piano and Meghan claimed it as her own. It wasn’t until the death of her mother, when Meghan was 13, that she began to pour out everything that had been poured into her in an attempt to make sense of her new world. The loss of her mother and her childhood still weaves in and out of her songs to this day.

A dream fulfilled By Kristi Casey Sanders

“I’ve been with the orchestra for 14 years and, for at least a decade, I’ve been looking for a summer home, so this is a great day,” says ASO President and Chief Executive Officer Alison Vulgamore. “The Orchestra looked north and south [of Atlanta]. We had a wonderful discussion with Habersham County, but it came a little early in our life to actually pull it off. We’ve had discussions in the south, with Callaway Gardens, for years. In the end, this was the community that, with its own vision, was the ripest for an amphitheater that the ASO would manage. It was just a great synergy of our mutual visions.” President and Chief Executive Officer of the Greater North Fulton Chamber 52 Encore Atlanta

of Commerce Brandon Beach says the Amphitheatre is the culmination of a dream he and other community leaders shared for a long time. “These individuals knew the missing component in our community was an arts and entertainment center where they could enjoy music and friendship without having to drive downtown.” He remembers an early pamphlet the chamber had drawn up to advertise plans to build an arts center. When a company representative from New Jersey visited to discuss relocating her office to Alpharetta, Beach pulled out the brochure. “She said, ‘Do you have any more of these? This might make the difference between my 70 employees – the arts are big in New Jersey.’

Even though plans for Verizon Wireless Amphitheatre at Encore Park were made public only a year ago, the promise has lived in the imagination of symphony and civic leaders for years.

“Today we have more than a brochure,” he continues, “We have a reality. The arts are a catalyst for economic development. This amphitheater will serve as a catalyst, a nerve center to bring the citizens of our community together in a great way.” People from other communities benefit as well: People from more than 40 states came to see the Eagles play last month. Three venues mean a lot of dates for the ASO to fill, but Vulgamore says there are no plans for a secondary orchestra. “One of the things that’s very special about our orchestra is it does it all,” Vulgamore says. “The ASO records La boheme, wins Grammys for America’s greatest composers and supports some of the most phenomenal artists of our time. We like to be a part of everywhere we are.” At the Encore Park opening, Vulgamore stressed, “This isn’t only a venue. We live here with you. Ninety percent of our musicians volunteer in the community.” The Atlanta community itself is to thank for the ASO’s diverse talents and offerings. Vulgamore says Atlanta’s youth as a city and its welcoming nature invites new ideas. “The arts live in this culture that allows experimentation and flexibility, and supports experimentation,” Vulgamore says, “The Atlanta Symphony [is] unlike any other orchestra. The diversity of those ensembles makes me so proud.”

Sister Hazel Aug. 23

Continued from page 18 On July 25, one of the best selling R&B acts of all time, Boyz II Men, co-headlines with what was likely a huge influence, Morris Day & the Time. Though they’re not performing together, two of today’s biggest soul sisters, Jill Scott and Erykah Badu, will be performing on July 30 and Aug. 27, respectively. Of course, you can’t mention Classic Chastain without including the world-renowned house band, the Atlanta Symphony Orchestra. The ASO’s first performance of the series is with jazz guitarists George Benson – in a tribute to Nat King Cole – and Earl Klugh on June 21. A week later, the Symphony will collaborate with rock balladeer Edwin McCain on June 28. July 2 sees classic rocker Boz Scaggs joining the ASO, followed by the summery vibes of the Beach Boys on Aug. 13. 56 Encore Atlanta

Finally, party rock act Sister Hazel gets the symphonic treatment on Aug. 23. (Complete lineup and details at www. Nestled away in the lush outskirts of Buckhead, Chastain Park Amphitheater provides an intimate setting to see some of your favorite acts of just about any genre. And whether you’re spreading out on the lawn with a blanket and picnic basket or enjoying the venue’s upscale concessions only feet away from the stars, there isn’t a bad seat to be had. Small wonder that concertgoers and critics annually vote Classic Chastain as Atlanta’s favorite concert experience. Jonathan Williams is a freelance writer specializing in arts & entertainment.
