MARIETTA - The Georgia Symphony Orchestra (GSO) opens the second half of its 68th season classical series with sacred sounds of two contrasting composers in a mixed program of old and new music.

Arguably the most well known living composer, Arvo Pärt developed a unique and appealing style of composition often referred to as mystic or sacred minimalism. Aside from his popularity in the concert hall, his works have also been featured in film and documentaries.

One of the most prolific composers in terms of the sheer volume of his compositional output, Franz Schubert had an uncanny knack of creating appealing melodies. His works traverse multiple genres and include symphonic, chamber, lieder, operas, and incidental music.

Along with the orchestra, “Musical Mirrors” will feature the GSO Chorus; GSO Chorus Director Bryan Black conducting Schubert's Mass No. 2; GSO Chorus soloists Elaine Norman Sturkey, Tom Federico, and Shawn Keswani; and the return of GSO favorite Helen Kim performing Schubert's Rondo for Violin and String Orchestra and Pärt's Fratres.  The concert takes place in the acoustically stunning Bailey Performance Center of Kennesaw State University.
