One of our biggest joys is performing in a home. After all, that’s what “chamber” music was written for! In January, Jerry and Peggy Stapleton were gracious hosts to over 100 people, most of whom were new to Franklin Pond! We were thrilled that so many gathered to hear the Franklin Pond Quartet (all Franklin Pond faculty and Atlanta Symphony Orchestra musicians) and a student piano quintet from our Fall Into Spring program. Rusty Paul, mayor of Sandy Springs, came and spoke about the new Sandy Springs Performing Arts Center. Good music, good people, and good wine made for a delightful and rewarding afternoon.
