Two legendary rock musicians and an innovative classical violinist join On Second Thought to talk about how they are mashing up their respective disciplines. Along with original compositions, these musicians use songs from Georgia’s most beloved musicians and bands and adapt them for an orchestra.


“A Night of Georgia Music” continues a collaboration between Mike Mills, bassist songwriter and co-founder of R.E.M.; Chuck Leavell, former member of The Allman Brothers Band, now the music director and keyboardist for The Rolling Stones; and Robert McDuffie, violinist and founder of the Robert McDuffie Center for Strings at Mercer University.

They will be performing at the Atlanta Symphony Orchestra on Sept. 29, but first they stopped by On Second Thought.

The Macon Film Festival begins tonight, but the audience will have to look up, around, and behind them to see the first film. The planetarium of the Macon Museum of Arts and Sciences is the screen for Savannah filmmaker Diana Reichenbach’s fulldome film, "Stardancer’s Waltz."

“Everybody can understand and connect through animation and that's honestly what brought me into animative filmmaking and then, eventually fulldome,” Reichenbach said.
