I have lived in Knoxville for 36 years and am a 1987 graduate of Powell High School.
I love the Knoxville Symphony Orchestra Pop Series, where the KSO does a tribute show for a pop artist. The musical arrangements are always a treat, and the mixture of pop and classical music is a unique style that I enjoy.
My favorite location would have to be Downtown Knoxville. I enjoy the eclectic mixture of restaurants, shops and constant activity on Market Square. You can always find a source of entertainment to fit your mood.
One of my favorite parts of working at KCAC is the personal interaction with clients. I enjoy seeing people reconnect to the historical aspects of the facility as well as assisting clients in elevating their events to new and more progressive opportunities. These personal connections show that the KCAC is so much more than just a building.
