Over the last ten years, Columbia State Community College, First Farmers & Merchants Bank and other sponsors and patrons have successfully brought in local and world renowned artists to perform on the Cherry Theater stage as part of the Performance Series. First Farmers & Merchants Bank has returned for a fourth year to be the title sponsor of the 2012-2013 First Farmers & Merchants Bank Performance Series presented by Columbia State Community College.
“First Farmers & Merchants Bank is a pillar of the Southern Middle Tennessee Community and has the same values we do – Learning, Caring and Quality – and we are fortunate to have their support,” said Dr. Janet F. Smith, President of Columbia State. “Performing Arts are essential to our community, and this commitment on the part of First Farmers shows that both organizations are devoted to hosting outstanding cultural events year round. The 2012-2013 First Farmers & Merchants Bank Performance Series will contribute to our region’s development and serve the citizens of southern Middle Tennessee.”
Past seasons have featured international performances from Russia, Ireland, and Canada, as well as acts from Nashville, Baltimore and other U.S. cities. The Series has featured an eclectic mix of shows ranging from the Nashville Symphony, to the Cumberland Playhouse, to the Platters.
