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.

Going Bach to the Beginning (Prelude to Event #12)

The Atlanta Wind Symphony opens it season with a special recreation of it's very first performance thirty years ago. To authenticate the experience all the more, original conductors of the AWS, G. Ellis Cannon and Jim Moody will conduct the symphony once again along with the current Musical Director, Dr. Patrick Carney.

There will be two performances of this concert: 3pm on Sun., Oct. 11, at the Roswell Cultural Arts Centert and again at 4pm on October 25th at Chamblee First United Methodist Church. I'll be going to the concert tomorrow and here's a bit of what's on the menu: Serenata for Flute and Band, Second American Folk Rhapsody, highlights from “The King and I,” Blue Tango, marches and more. Here's the link to AWS's ticketing information. (photo Atlanta Wind Symphony at Carnegie Hall)
