The Ameris Bank Amphitheatre (Formerly Verizon Amphtheatre) at Encore Park is a 12,000-seat outdoor facility for the Atlanta Symphony Orchestra. With 5,000 covered and 7,000 lawn seats, the venue hosts a variety of national acts, from popular rock shows and touring Broadway musicals to smaller community events and ASO pops/classical performances. A lightweight orchestra shell is deployed for classical music concerts, utilizing the same truss system as amplified events. Combined with its activities at the Woodruff Arts Center and Chastain Park, Encore Park allows the ASO to present more than 300 concerts annually.
