First Look: Atlanta Symphony Orchestra’s 2012 Decorators’ Show House



The Decorators' Show House & Gardens is one of several fund-raising events of the Atlanta Symphony Associates. One hundred and fifty designers competed to be among the final 25 firms selected for this year’s show house.The annual event has garnered $1 million for the Atlanta Symphony Orchestra in the past five years, with proceeds supporting a wide range of programs, including the Atlanta Symphony Youth Orchestra, the Concerts for Young People series and the Talent Development Program that nurtures promising young Latino and African-American musicians pursuing careers in classical music. 

The Atlanta Symphony Associates has announced a series of special events as part of the Show House this year.
