The Atlanta Symphony Orchestra Players’ Association (ASOPA) is offering to travel to three high schools caught up in an alleged snubbing by ASO mangement on the grounds of “diversity” to perform with their choral groups for free, the association has said in a press release.
“[The Association] has sat by in dismay for the past several days observing the ASO management’s disintegrating relations with Lassiter, Walton, and Grady High Schools, and the whole community,” ASOPA said.
“As musicians who love to play with the talented choruses at these schools, we want to help resolve these ongoing issues.”
ASOPA’s offer is as follows: the musicians will travel to all three schools for free to put on a concert with each choral group. The schools may use these concerts as fundraisers, and keep any proceeds from them.
