Outdoor Amphitheater On Atlanta Sym’s Agenda

The Atlanta Symphony has unveiled plans for a $35 million outdoor concert venue in Alpharetta, Georgia. “The 12,000-seat Encore Park for the Arts, planned for 45 wooded acres… is expected to open in May 2008.” The ASO is also attempting to build support for its new downtown concert hall, but ground has yet to be broken on that project. “Encore Park is expected to boost the ASO’s budget from $30 million to $50 million.”
