GOArts is short for Georgia Open Arts Month which takes place each October.
It's a collective campaign to raise awareness about arts in our area.

Last October, I took up a challenge to see 31 shows in 31 days and blog about it... in the end, I saw 41.
Sure, it was a bit tiring but it was also an amazing opportunity.

The column on the left is a linked schedule of everything I saw.
For a more logical read of this blog o'adventures, scroll down to the first entry and start reading there.

I'm not a reviewer, nor am I an art critic.
I aim to raise public awareness about the great tapestry of arts & culture in our area and inspire you to get out there and enjoy it.

Fanfare & Tall Tales (Prelude to Events #32 & #33)

In a very short while I will make my way over to the Roswell United Methodist Church to hear the Michael O'Neil Singers (MOS) perform a concert of contemporary works.  The 135 members symphonic choral will perform alongside the 26 member chamber ensemble today to present Fanfare For A New DayThe program is meant to remind us that "choral music is an art form constantly reinventing itself!"  Fun Factoid: The multi-talented Dr. Michael O'Neil, pictured left, not only founded and leads the MOS, but his solo career has included opera and oratorio performances in Italy and Belgium and appearances on National Public Radio and the Armed Forces Radio Network.  According to their website, tickets to this 3pm performance are available at the door.

This evening, I believe there will be much ado about all the ghosts the folks at the Art Station have found to be haunting the area.  I'm going to find out for myself and take A Tour of Southern Ghosts.  Click on this link to see video that might have you convinced that you should come along and take the tour with me or sometime this week since Halloween is not too far away!  These tours take place in Stone Mountain Park.
