Music lovers in greater Atlanta and beyond are fortunate to have Will Ransom. Twenty-five years ago Ransom, a concert pianist and music professor at Emory University, found a way to bring chamber music to a wider part of the community through the Emory Chamber Music Society.

Ransom spoke with “City Lights” host Lois Reitzes about this year’s programming and about the history of the organization.
