The Cannon Classical Music Series brings the best of local and regional live classical music to the stage of the Sautee Nacoochee Center. In this intimate, 98-seat theatre, there is no bad seat and the execution and vibrancy of every performance ring true.Franklin Pond Chamber Music is a year-round chamber music program for young string students in grades 6 through 12. Franklin Pond Chamber Music was founded in 2001 by Atlanta Symphony Orchestra violinist Ronda Respess, who started the Summer Intensive Program after realizing Atlanta’s need for a high-quality summer program for serious string students. The following summer Franklin Pond received its 501(c)3 status and has been steadily growing since then. Through the study of chamber music, students develop their artistic and interpretive talents as well as strengthen their leadership, expression, and communication skills. Students are coached regularly by faculty members from the Atlanta Symphony Orchestra, attend masterclasses with guest artists from all over the nation along with special classes such as career development, eurhythmics, Alexander Technique, and multiple opportunities to perform in public.
