I was at the Cannon Center for a fundraiser/concert. It was a great place to mingle and meet with friends before and after.

The sound and seating is good at this venue. I've been to several events here and have no complaints. There is elevator and escalator access as well.

Beautiful venue for any type of live performance. I have had seats in various parts of the theater for different shows, and there is not a bad seat in the house.

Excellent performance of songs from Elvis Presley movies. We enjoyed the orchestra as well as the visiting band and vocalists, the Terry Mike Jeffrey Band.

CC has excellent sight lines from every seat. Back stage area is slightly confusing. Sound is very good. Elevator is very good as steps are slightly steep for older patrons.
