Macon has a symphony, again, thanks to young musicians and seasoned pros

Four years ago the Macon Symphony Orchestra took the stage for the last time. This week they returned to the city’s Grand Opera House, thanks to a new collaboration between the young musicians of the Mercer University McDuffie Center for Strings and the seasoned professionals of the Atlanta Symphony Orchestra.
