The Chopin Society of Atlanta is a non-profit organization devoted to promoting Fryderyk Chopin’s music and advancing the understanding and appreciation of his legacy while engaging and inspiring youth from the Metro Atlanta area. The essence of their mission lies in enriching children’s education and fostering an appreciation for classical music, as they believe that music represents a universal language that reaches the depths of emotions, stirs imagination and helps youth gain a better understanding and respect for each other. Their programs not only help the youth appreciate the beauty of classical music but help them develop self-esteem and become a positive influence on their peers, demonstrating that listening to and playing classical music can translate into life-lasting valuable and exciting experiences.
