Separately, Franklin Pond hosts its an annual student music competition, with musicians performing together in groups, May 25-26 in Spivey Hall at Clayton State University. Violist James Dunham, of the Axelrod Quartet in residence at the Smithsonian Institute, in Washington D.C., will select division winners. Cash prize awards include $1,000 and $800, for high school and middle school group winners, respectively.
“We really wanted students to give themselves a goal to feel proud of and say, ‘I did something myself. I wasn’t walked through it by a parent or a teacher,’” said Fairchild.
