We're taking an intermission.

Members of the community, 

From the bottom of our hearts, we thank you for your support of the Franklin Cultural Festival over the past two years. It has been a fantastic celebration of our community, and it would not have been successful without all of you. The Franklin Cultural Council is undergoing a restructure and searching for a new dedicated chair, and so, the Festival will be taking an intermission in 2023. 

We appreciate your continued support of arts and culture in Franklin and look forward to future events.

With our very best wishes,
The Franklin Cultural Council

Raye Lynn Mercer shares some stories of 38 years at 38 Main St (audio)

FM #850 = This is the Franklin Matters radio show, number 850 in the series. 


This session of the radio show shares my conversation with Raye Lynn Mercer, founder and Director of the Franklin School for Performing Arts. We recorded this in the Franklin Public Radio Studio on Hutchinson St Wednesday, Sep 14, 2022.  

Starting their 38th year at 38 Main St in downtown Franklin, Raye Lynn shares the development of the Franklin School for Performing Arts (FSPA), and organic expansion over the years to include the Franklin Performing Arts Company (FPAC), getting their own performance home with THE BLACK BOX, the development of the equity actors agreement, and the current season of performances that was just announced.

We cover a lot of ground in about 35 minutes but there are more stories to come so let’s listen to my conversation with Raye Lynn Mercer.

Intermission Cafe presents Virtual Coffee Houses

During this time of social distancing, Intermission Cafe is collaborating with the Franklin School for the Performing Arts (FSPA) to offer virtual entertainment and community. Every Tuesday, Thursday, and Saturday at 4:00 PM on Intermission’s Facebook page, Intermission will host a “Virtual Coffee House” featuring live music by the talented students and alumni of the Franklin School for the Performing Arts.

Intermission has previously hosted FSPA students and alumni to present pop, rock, folk, and contemporary musical theater songs in a coffee house format at the cafe itself. Intermission is opening its doors virtually to entertain customers in an interactive and engaging format of popular songs. Performers will converse with their audience sharing interesting facts and stories about the music and original artists they have chosen to perform.

To view the live and past Virtual Coffee House performances, follow Intermission on Facebook. Patrons can also follow Intermission on Instagram (@intermissioncafe). The cafe is located at 36 Main Street (rear) in downtown Franklin.
