In 2018 when Lee J. and I first saw the CNC’s Lakeside Pavilion and lawn venue space we fell in love with it. We were immediately struck by how perfect the natural acoustics and beautiful setting were for an “Outdoor Listening Room” concert experience. We knew there were people in Roswell, and all over the Atlanta area who would appreciate the opportunity and convenience of driving along the river in Roswell to the venue and then effortlessly parking for free.

We also felt that the scheduling of the concerts for early 7PM Sunday nights once a month, May through September would be a welcomed new idea. This year we’ll have a short season of three concerts, the second Sunday evening of July, August, and September. This provides the guests with an opportunity for a unique and wonderfully fulfilling ending to their week.

We know the socializing part is important, especially these days! So, there’s plenty of time for listening to the music as well as socializing before the concert and during the break between sets. People can get home shortly after 9PM with a grin on their face because they had the opportunity of connecting with friends and family, making new friends, coming early and experiencing the CNC grounds, picnicking, and enjoying world-class music performed by world-class musicians with heart and soul.

We have enjoyed working with the wonderful staff here and have been so grateful for the opportunity to contribute to the whole community of the CNC by using our experience with providing music and entertainment for over 6,000 events. It’s also gratifying to welcome new people who are enjoying the CNC for the first time.

Check out the extraordinary line-up for this year, invite your friends or family, book your tickets now, mark your calendar and get your menu and picnic basket ready. Come early to enjoy the grounds and we’ll see you there.

The CNC staff, volunteers, and sponsors invite you to join us and allow yourself to be inspired, fulfilled, nurtured, and connected while gaining a fresh perspective, nurturing your heart & soul, and expanding your mind.


If we don’t see you this year, we’ll be sad that you missed out on all the fun!
