Athens Symphony Orchestra

The Athens Symphony Orchestra is canceling its 2020 Fall and Christmas concerts due to the coronavirus pandemic. Mike Bascle is president of the board of directors. 

"We canceled our Spring and [Picnic at the]Pops concerts earlier this year, and then with the continuing COVID-19 pandemic we've canceled our Fall and Christmas concerts for November and December of this year," said Bascle.

Athens takes a lot of pride in being a music town – the city that gave us REM, Widespread Panic, the B-52s, and so many more. Now some of the town’s biggest musical luminaries are getting a spot on the Athens Music Walk of Fame. Jimmy Sanders offers us this appreciation.
