Symphony Orchestra Augusta set for gala reopening of restored Miller Theater

Posted on: January 2, 2018

On January 6, Georgia’s Symphony Orchestra Augusta will perform a gala concert at the Miller Theater in downtown Augusta, its first performance in the space following a seven-year, $23 million restoration. The Miller Theater, built in 1940, was originally a movie theater and was constructed in Arte Moderne style; it closed in 1984. The space will be the orchestra’s new permanent home and also host other performing arts groups. The day after the Symphony Orchestra Augusta’s reopening concert, the theater will host a free open house from 2 to 4 pm, with self-guided tours and experts on hand to answer questions. Symphony Orchestra Augusta, in its sixty-third season, performs public concerts and operates a variety of education and community outreach programs within a 75-mile radius of Augusta. Dirk Meyer is the orchestra’s music director, and Anne Catherine Murray is executive director.
