Two high school choirs in Georgia will miss out on an opportunity to perform at the Atlanta Symphony Orchestra because it was decided that they are not racially diverse enough. The choruses of Walton High School and Lassiter High School will have to sit on the sidelines.

Atlanta Symphony Orchestra President Stanley Romanstein offered an explanation: “We want the stages of the Atlanta Symphony, whether here, Verizon (Wireless Amphitheatre), or Chastain Park to reflect the diversity of Atlanta.”

Romanstein called opposing viewpoints “an interesting misunderstanding.”

“There are at least 12 very talented high school choirs in Atlanta,” he said. “We gave Lassiter and Walton choirs an opportunity to perform for four consecutive years, and they were marvelous. We think it’s time to give other Atlanta high school choirs, who are very skilled and deserving, their chance to perform with the ASO as well.”
