"I don't want to let much more time pass before thanking [The Classic Center] once again for the help that [the event planner] and the wonderful staff gave us during GMEA a couple weeks ago. We were thrilled with what [The Classic Center] did to make it an easy show for us!"

GMEA Statewide

"I was one of the organizers for GMEA Statewide Sixth Grade Honor Chorus and had the opportunity to work with Wanda Darden and her team over the past two days. I wanted to let you know how impressed I was by their professionalism, care and dedication the entire time. Wanda was incredibly proactive and was able to pinpoint and fix potential issues (such as locked doors) before they became problems. Wanda, as well as the other staff members who were helping with the event, were quick to handle our many requests with smiles and grace. This included everything from helping when children were sick to creating and posting reserved seating signs with little notice from us. We never once were made to feel like we were adding to their workloads, despite the fact that we kept them running around the entire time. This was our first year holding 6th Grade Honor Chorus at The Classic Center, and while we were nervous about making the switch to Athens, your staff made us feel right at home."

"GMEA is very pleased to establish a new and ongoing relationship with the City of Athens and The Classic Center. The recent additions made to The Classic Center will enable us to house our events all under one roof, which has been our goal for a number of years. The magnificent performance theatre is the icing on the cake."

Bishop Williams' Retirement Celebration

"The Bishop reception was the best and he had a wonderful time. For me, a conference of this magnitude involving even a small portion of the globe, is in and of itself mind-blowing. I thank you and your staff and everyone else who helped make-up the work involved in making this a great success.  Blessing to you and your staff!"

"The North Georgia Conference of The United Methodist Church loves coming to The Classic Center for its annual conference because the facilities continue to be perfect for our conference needs, and the staff listen so carefully to what will make our time there both comfortable and productive.
