Discover the stories of prodigies, bandmasters, a dance club DJ, a beloved family songbird, and more on this musically-inclined tour!

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 outside of the Bell Tower Building (at the Visitors Center and Museum Shop) at 10:30 AM. Please arrive a few minutes early to check in with the volunteer at the front desk.

Spaces are extremely limited, so we recommend purchasing your tickets in advance.

Vaccinated guests can remove their masks during a tour. If an at-risk tour guest is uncomfortable, all tour guests will agree to continue wearing their masks for the duration of the tour to ensure the comfort of all visitors.
