Picture Tallahassee: Where We Live, Work & Play
Presented by Council on Culture & Arts (COCA) at AIA Florida
Jan 27, 2017 - Mar 31, 2017 
Opening Reception: Friday, Jan. 27: 5:30-7 pm

Picture Tallahassee: Where We Live, Work & Play is a juried, fine art photography exhibition that celebrates community design as an art form. On display are 26 images featuring architecture in the Tallahassee area. Diverse in style and subject matter, some of the photographs convey the impressive weight of concrete and steel, while others capture the delicacy of nature reflected in glass. By exhibiting artful images of the physical structures where we live, work, and play, this exhibition demonstrates that our built environment has the power to summon an emotional connection in people.

This exhibition is presented by the Florida Association of the American Institute of Architects (AIA Florida) and is made possible through the partnership of the Council on Culture & Arts (COCA) with additional support from the Florida Foundation for Architecture and AIA Tallahassee.

A free, public opening reception is scheduled for Friday, January 27th from 5:30 pm - 7 pm. This event will also serve as the awards announcement for the exhibition.

Presented by The Tallahassee Community Chorus at Ruby Diamond Concert Hall - Florida State University
Saturday, Jan 28, 2017 

The Chorus is proud to present the world premiere of "Sanctus" by Artistic Director, Dr. André J. Thomas. The Chorus commissioned this movement of what will become the André Thomas Mass. This song of praise is followed by selections from the Sacred Concerts by Duke Ellington, which combine jazz, elements of dance and African-American spiritual. Composed in the last decade of his life, Ellington called these concerts "the most important thing I've ever done." In addition, there will be a special video performance.

Private Lives
Presented by Theatre Tallahassee at Theatre Tallahassee
Jan 26, 2017 - Feb 12, 2017 

Noel Coward's "Private Lives" is a comedy of passions.  Amanda and her new husband, Victor, find themselves honeymooning in the same hotel as Amanda's ex-husband, Elyot, and his new wife, Sibyl.  Not just the same hotel, but in suites with adjoining balconies!  Together again sparks fly and they realize they are still passionately in love.

Presented by Tallahassee Bach Parley at St. John's Episcopal Church

It's become a worldwide phenomenon, averaging six million downloads each month and over 240 million lifetime downloads.
