South Fulton Arts Center

I strongly recommend Justin Clay and the Music from the Heart Fine Arts Program for any job that requires quick thinking, great organizational skills and a pleasant demeanor when working with people. I had the pleasure of contracting out Music from the Heart Fine Arts to provide services to the South Fulton Arts Center. Upon my first few weeks of working with this dynamic program, I personally required my staff to attend the Music from the Heart Fine Arts’ concert performance in the Atrium of World’s Busiest Airport (Hartsfield-Jackson International). While in attendance, my staff at the South Fulton Arts Center witnessed our own Justin Clay perform with the CEO for Pianos for Peace, who honored as an ambassador by receiving the exhibition piano at the Airport and speak about being a partner for Pianos for Peace.
