The only thing better than visiting the High Museum and being able to walk around and admire all of the incredible galleries is being able to do it with Atlanta Symphony Orchestra performing! There are two pop-up performances taking place in the modern and contemporary galleries including a violin trio and a string quartet.

This is definitely a heightened way of being able to see and experience the High Museum and it’s one that you won’t want to miss.  This is such a good event if you’re looking for things to do in Atlanta this weekend.
