Exciting and interesting music is on the program as Atlanta Freedom Bands presents "Roots & Branches", a celebration of African-American culture and influence in music. The selections span the decades from the roots of ragtime, the blues, and jazz to the branches of contemporary composers and works for orchestra and wind band. The show even includes a selection of pop tunes from Motown's golden age. The program also features the premiere of a new work by a local student composer. Free parking is available, and a reception follows the concert.
