About Us

The Griffin Concert Association was begun in 1940 under the sponsorship of the Utility Club of Griffin and began working with the Columbia Broadcasting System’s Community Concert Series to bring national and international performers to Griffin. Since its formation in 1940, the Griffin Area Concert Association (GACA) has worked to build and maintain, through a non-profit plan, a permanent arts audience in Griffin, Spalding County and its environs. The GACA seeks to provide an opportunity for the citizens in Griffin and surrounding communities to experience quality performances through the presentation of live concerts and recitals featuring national and international performing artists in a variety of genres. In addition we seek to expose the youth of our area to the variety of music and performers and genres we sponsor by admitting all children under the age of 18 free to all concerts when accompanied by a paid adult.

The GACA is a  501 (c) 3 non-profit organization composed entirely of volunteers committed to bringing quality performers to the community. GACA is self governing with an all volunteer board of directors.
