The Making of Vivaldi in the Park

Vivaldi in the Park, a premier collaboration between North Atlanta Dance Theatre and the Johns Creek Symphony Orchestra is set to take to the stage Saturday May 4th at 7 p.m. the Mark Burkhalter Amphitheater at Newtown Park in Johns Creek.

The idea was the brainchild of Stephanie Magaldi, Development Director for NADT. Stephanie is the daughter of NADT’s Artistic Director, Michael Garrison NADT Co-Founder, Kitty Garrison. Stephanie had the idea many months ago and approached Garrison. Spring is an extremely busy time for the dance theatre but once Garrison sat down with Wayne Baughman, Maestro for Johns Creek Symphony Orchestra, the creative wheels began to turn and a beautiful performance began to take shape.

We sat down with Michael and Wayne for a conversation about how this production came to be, what the audience can expect to see and why this type of collaboration is imperative to bringing the arts to center stage in John Creek and its surrounding communities.
