Upcoming Seasonal Events at Anniston Museum

The Music at the Museum series for 2006-2007 opens Sunday, Nov. 26, at 3 p.m. with a free concert that's right in tune with the season. “Christmas is Coming” and with it a special performance from students who study with members of Northeast Alabama Music Teachers Association.

These talented young musicians will usher in the holidays with festive solos and duets. The concert is free and takes place in the Anniston Museum auditorium. Call (256) 237-6766 for more information on this or any of the upcoming Music at the Museum concerts.

The museum's annual musical series continues through May 6, 2007, bringing some exceptional talent to our area. Upcoming performances include the Jan. 28, 2007, “Piano Portrait of Maurice Ravel” (ticketed fundraiser/Dessert Extravaganza) and the Feb. 18, 2007, free concert, “Schumann's Year of Song.”

While you're at the museum, check out “Indians of the Americas,” a new temporary exhibition of art and artifacts from native cultures of North, Central and South America, which opened earlier this month.

This unique exhibit features pottery vessels, stone implements and various other remarkable objects, most from the museum's own permanent collection. A few additional pieces on loan from private collections round out the Central and South American sections. Viewers will see examples of art and technology, which serve as vivid descriptions of the cultures from which these pieces have come.

This exhibition will run through July 31, 2007. Regular museum admission is charged. Call the museum for more information.

On Tuesday, Dec. 5, the museum invites you to “Deck the Halls … the Porch … the Walls!” at its annual Homes for the Holidays tour. If you need some holiday inspiration, this is your event.

From 11 a.m. until 7 p.m., this wonderful, fanciful self-driving tour of area homes (all decked out for the season) encompasses three dwellings, a historic school of the Choccolocco Valley and an Anniston inn, promising some of the most beautiful holiday decorations you're likely to see this season.
