Casual Classics was established in 2007 by Suzanne Shull, then a resident of Bent Tree and member of Fellowship Presbyterian Church. Over the years, the series has featured many soloists and ensembles associated with the Atlanta Symphony Orchestra, faculty at Kennesaw State University, and emerging artists. With Shull’s move to Atlanta, Calvert Johnson stepped up to be the new concert manager, beginning with the 2018-19 season. Members of the board of directors include Sara Corkill, Marc Unger, Kelly Lohman, Lin Pollard, and Suzanne Shull as past director.
