CRITIC’S PICK: In conjunction with the Atlanta Symphony concert performances on Thu., Nov. 16, Sat., Nov. 18, and Sun. Nov. 19, this Saturday-only post-concert reception highlights past, present, and future contributions and accomplishments of black women in classical music. The special event includes features a meet-and-greet with ASO guest soloist Michelle Cann; Spelman College student vocalists; Maria Clark, Senior Voice Instructor at Spelman; and a spoken word performance by Theresa the Songbird. — Doug DeLoach

CRITIC’S PICK: The “wonderfully expressive virtuoso” Michelle Cann will play Sergei Rachmaninov’s popular Piano Concerto No. 2 with guest conductor David Danzmayr leading the Atlanta Symphony Orchestra. “Even its more reserved moments will have you cradling your head in your hands, begging for mercy,” a Classic FM writer warned. The epic piece, reportedly dedicated to Rachmaninov’s shrink, will be followed by Sergei Prokofiev’s Symphony No. 7; the concert opens with “Short Piece for Orchestra,” described as “a lively and somewhat raucous piece” written by composer Julia Perry. — Kevin C. Madigan
