Atlanta Arts Partnership to Investigate 'Creation Stories' in 2014-15
Emory University partners with the Atlanta Symphony Orchestra and the Georgia Humanities Council to present a year of academic and artistic programming that explores "Creation Stories." This is the first major collaboration among all three organizations.
Over the course of the 2014-2015 concert season and academic year, the "Creation Stories" project will explore timeless questions of origin, creation and intent that serve as a catalyst for human thought and creativity, as well as seek to discover what 21st Century learners might gain from an exploration of creation narratives across time and cultures.
In 2011, "Creation Stories" received an $800,000 grant from the Andrew W. Mellon foundation. The grant will support the commission of a new musical work for the Atlanta Symphony Orchestra and Chorus to be performed spring 2015, as well as the development of academic and artistic programming on Emory's campus.
Schwartz Center for Performing Arts: The Donna and Marvin Schwartz Center for Performing Arts is a place where teaching, learning, and performance merge to create a vital arts presence for the entire community.
