Symphony Orchestra Augusta to announce plans for Miller Theater



Symphony Orchestra Augusta is inviting the community to a formal announcement about its plans for the Miller Theater at 10 a.m. today.

SOA announced the meeting, which will be held at the Miller Theater at 708 Broad St., in an e-mail Thursday evening. It doesn’t say what those plans are for the historic theater on Broad Street in downtown Augusta.

“The community is welcome to a brief public announcement of the vote at tonight’s Symphony Orchestra Augusta Board of Directors meeting regarding Peter Knox’s generous offer to donate the historic Miller Theater to our organization,” board President Joe Huff wrote in the e-mail. “After three years of detailed studies, a final decision has been made. We welcome the Miller’s patient and loyal fans to hear about the intensive process, led by the dedicated Levi Hill IV.”

Questions won’t be taken during the announcement, Huff said, but “we did not want to delay in sharing our news with an anxious public.”

He added that a formal news conference with a question-and-answer session and additional details will be held later.

“We know the restoration of the Miller is an integral part of our city’s downtown revitalization and as such, has given this process all of the due diligence it deserves,” Huff said.
