Arts
The “I Am” project, featuring four original works, is inspired by the struggle for civil rights. Ballet Memphis is the guest company-in-residence for the 2018 Alabama Dance Festival.
Featured classes include a kids’ clay class, acting sampler class for teens, blues/folk harmonica, visual arts, and Latin dance for adults.
Henry Panion III will conduct the orchestra, and choirs from UAB, Alabama A&M, Alabama State, Tuskeegee, Birmingham-Southern, Miles and Talladega colleges will join the tribute at UAB’s Alys Stephens Center.
This harmonious holiday celebration, fun for all ages, includes a hand-picked selection of soulful songs along with traditional favorites.
An annual tradition since 2001, the concert features hundreds of singers as the UAB choirs and Trumpet Ensemble are joined by area high school choirs and the Steel City Men’s Chorus.
The Alys Stephens Center will also present a free sensory-friendly show Nov. 18. During Kevin Spencer’s residency, he will meet with patients at Children’s of Alabama and patients and students at UAB.
For its 22nd anniversary, choir alumni from throughout the state and country will journey home to join members in concert and bid farewell to founding director Kevin Turner.
From found objects to the most fragile and intricately constructed instruments, the program will feature instruments all belonging to the trumpet family and works that prominently feature the trumpet.
Part of the Alys Stephens Center’s Salon Series, this performance offers unique, onstage seating. On the program are works by Mozart, Saint-Saëns and Dvořák.
With new songs by Tony Award-winning Lin-Manuel Miranda, “Working” explores “the extraordinary dreams of ordinary people” — American workers.
