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.

Handel's Nightmare (Prelude to Event #39)

You know that Halloween can't be too far off when a well-respected, well-traveled Baroque organization plays a concert with nightmare-ish music.  Tonight's concert, Handel's Nightmare, will feature mezzo-soprano Tijana Grujic in selections from some of Handel's most popular operas. Also featured are sonatas for violin and continuo by Biber, Corelli and Tartini, including Corelli's "La Folia" and Tartini's "The Devil's Trill.

The concert will be performed by Atlanta's acclaimed New Trinity Baroque Early Music Ensemble at 8pm tonight in St. Bartolomew's Episcopal Church.
