Oakland’s Music Makers
September 9 @ 10:30 am - 11:30 amFree
From spiritual songwriters to country legends, Oakland Cemetery’s musical roots are deep and far-reaching. This tour spotlights noted Atlanta musicians buried here and examines how some of the cemetery’s architecture tunes into musical themes. Discover the stories of musical prodigies, Civil War bandmasters, a dance club DJ, a beloved family songbird, and more on this musically-inclined tour.
This tour starts at the Front Gate (main entrance at Oakland Avenue and MLK Jr. Drive) at 10:30 AM. Please arrive a few minutes early to check in at the volunteer desk inside the Visitor Center (located adjacent to the main gate) before meeting at the Front Gate.
