ARTworks announces upcoming special events
ARTworks has announced some upcoming special events over the next few weeks and folks can enjoy Shakespeare, Yoga + Art, and a special Mother’s Day concert too! Lots of things are going on at ARTworks, the community arts center in Beaufort, the coolest arts council in the Carolinas, the home of the BIG Story Fest.
May 10th in the black box theater at ARTworks in Beaufort Town Center, Simply Grand presents a Mother’s Day concert, with melodies, loving lyrics, and special ticket prices~ $12 for all tickets, $7 for children. The concert begins @ 7:30, surrounded by a quilt show in the gallery, artists working in their studios, and the classrooms where creativity happens.
After years of performing together locally and throughout Northeast Florida, Simply Grand was organized in 2010. The nucleus of the group includes Keyboardist Kenneth Varner, Saxophonist Gregory Whittaker, and Drummer Trevor Daniels. The trio of musicians soon discovered a certain chemistry and musical affinity that led to their formation of Simply Grand, a versatile musical ensemble that has a unique ability to shift between Contemporary Jazz, Gospel, and Blues with ease. One the band’s most notable performances occurred during the Beaufort 300 celebration in which the group played to a packed house at the Beaufort Waterfront Park.
Back by popular demand for four shows only May 30th through June 2nd, in “The Complete Works of William Shakespeare (Abridged)” the audience gets to see three actors sweat as they work, guffaw, sword fight, and stagger their way through all 37 of the Bard’s plays in 97 Minutes.
