JOHNS CREEK, Ga. — The Johns Creek Symphony Orchestra recently concluded its 2017-2018 season on May 12, performing “The American Dream” concert at the Johns Creek United Methodist Church.
The performance, conducted by Music Director J. Wayne Baughman, featured Roger Wise as narrator as well as baritone Brent Davis. It was part history lesson and part musical travelogue, depicting America’s rich musical heritage, spanning different regions of the country throughout a variety of historical time periods.
Joining forces with 39 other orchestras from across the country, the Johns Creek Symphony Orchestra collected a table full of nonperishable food items as part of the American Symphony Orchestra League’s “Orchestras Feeding America” initiative.
The food items collected at the concert will be donated to the North Fulton Community Charities Food Pantry, in support of those who are still struggling to achieve the American Dream in North Fulton.
Funding for this program was provided by the Fulton County Board of Commissioners. This concert was also supported in part by the Georgia Council for the Arts through the appropriations of the Georgia General Assembly, as well as its partner agency - the National Endowment for the Arts. Additional support was provided by the Rotary Club of Johns Creek North Fulton.
