A Musical Tribute to Atlanta’s Public Safety Officials, ASO Style

We recently covered a very special Spring concert from the Atlanta Symphony Orchestra honoring our city’s much-deserving public safety officials. The Orchestra performed Mark Grey’s “Fire Angels,” which was originally written for the 10th anniversary of 9/11.EDITB140320ISOFireAngelLRM-006-3142253101-O-2

Atlanta’s public safety heroes were well represented at a pre-concert reception at the Galleria at the Woodruff Arts Center. It was moving to see so many being honored and celebrating together!EDITB140320ISOFireAngelLRM-005-3142252073-O

Just about every vehicle imaginable was on-hand from motorcycle to SWAT van. Even mounted police were there with indisputably the most charming and lively mode of transport ever!EDITB140320ISOFireAngelLRM-000-3142247983-O140320aISOfireAngelLRM-5-3134400813-O

We were treated to a truly moving, expanded version of Fire Angels, led by ASO Musical Director Robert Spano. The Orchestra was joined by Soprano Jessica Rivera--who premiered Fire Angels at Carnegie Hall in 2011–and acclaimed Tenor Stuart Skelton.EDITB140320ISOFireAngelLRM-014-3142259252-O
