The Kennesaw State University School of Music has entered into a partnership agreement with the world-renowned Atlanta Symphony Orchestra. The partnership was announced on Jan. 24 during the first performance by the ASO at Kennesaw State.

The formal partnership will further solidify their cooperative interests in music performance, education and outreach. The ASO will perform three concerts at KSU during the 2014-15 season and Robert Spano, music director of the ASO, will visit KSU annually for a dedicated educational activity.

Last October, Spano visited KSU for a three-day residency in which he rehearsed the KSU Symphony Orchestra, hosted a question-and-answer session and coached students in chamber music performance.

Spano said, “One of the things that was striking in my experience with Kennesaw has been the amazing trajectory which has occurred over the last decade. It is just astonishing to me how much has been accomplished by the administration and faculty in such a short period of time. It is gratifying to witness the vitality, growth and dynamism of what is going on here — and to include Kennesaw State as part of our larger ASO family.”
