Concerts at Emerson Hall

Last week I’ve been to two concerts in the Emerson Concert Hall at Schwartz Center for Performing Arts. The concert on Tuesday, “Magnificat”, was about organ and choral music from the sixteenth century. On Friday, the Emory University Symphony Orchestra gave a concert under the conductor Richard Prior.
