Macon has an extensive music history, and one arts association works to ensure that concerts continue to be held in this city. If there is a show, performance or concert in Macon, odds are the Concert Association has been involved at one point or another.

Since 1933, the Macon Concert Association has brought numerous classical music performances to Middle Georgia. Everything from small ensembles and quartets to large symphonies and orchestras has come through Macon, at large part due to the Concert Association. They make sure that traveling acts know that there are venues in Macon ready to be filled and audiences ready to watch.

The Association holds most of their events on Wesleyan University’s campus, specifically the Burden Parlor and the Porter Auditorium. According to Gateway Macon, the Association puts on shows in sets of four and sells subscription tickets that allow people to see each concert, with individual tickets on sale as well.

The Burden Parlor is a historic event space on the Wesleyan University campus in Macon. It seats 100 people and has a fine reception area and a grand piano. The Porter Auditorium is much larger and seats over 1,000 people for events. The concert association uses this space mainly for special and larger events, such as “Portals,” the show by renowned violinist Tim Fain.

This association tends to involve itself with fine arts performances. Recent shows consist of Baroque Ensembles, solo pianists, guitar duos and string quartets. The next show being put on by the association is the duo of violinist and Yoojin Yang and pianist Renana Gutman.
