Fall Guide - Fall Guide 2009
High culture meets down-home fun
Somebody’s having a birthday! 2009 marks 30 years for 7 Stages Theatre and the Atlanta Opera; 65 years for the Atlanta Symphony Orchestra and 80 years each for the Atlanta Ballet and the Fabulous Fox Theatre. For a year that wasn’t necessarily a (cough) piece of cake for anyone, it’s heartening to see many of the city’s cultural institutions persevere.
The 2009 Fall Guide invites you to listen in on the opera, spend an evening with the symphony and watch productions at a Tony award-winning theater. Not so sure you’re properly culturalized for all this fancy theater business? Check out our 12 tips for staying classy on the opposite page. It’s a no-fail plan — we swear. We’ve also included a list of Atlanta’s top sports events as well as ways to add some country flair to your fall. But that’s hardly everything. We’d be remiss not to mention all of the festivals, concerts and more that pack Atlanta’s calendar each fall. Still not satisfied? We thought you might want more. Visit clatl.com/fallguide for expanded listings of the season’s best bets.
