ABBAMANIA

ABBAMANIA IN CONCERT: OCTOBER 10, 2019

In the beginning, “ABBAMANIA” was six months in rehearsals just for vocal arrangements.  Abba’s harmonies are very difficult to reproduce as ABBA recorded their vocals many times on each record to make them sound so big and full. Not only did the cast have to look like Anni-Frid, Bjorn, Benny and Agnetha, they had to sound like them. ABBAMANIA was a huge venture. They are backed by a live band and carry charts for a full symphony show.  They sold out two shows, 6000 tickets, with the San Diego Symphony.

With authentic costumes, made by the seamstress from MAMMA MIA, and incredible vocals, ABBAMANIA will take you back in time to when ABBA was on stage, live in concert.

Food vendor to be announced soon! Rainbow Island/Sea Island. 8 p.m., doors open at 7 p.m. $45/person. For more info, click here.

Gene Threats

GENE THREATS ART EXHIBIT: JULY 6, 2018 – JULY 31, 2018

Golden Isles Arts & Humanities will be showcasing the artwork of local artist Gene Threats during the month of July. The exhibit will open on First Friday, July 6th with a reception from 5 pm to 8 pm.

Art has always been a part of Gene’s life; he received his Bachelor of Fine Arts from Valdosta State University but was unable to fully pursue his career after graduation as he was committed to assisting his mother who was ill. Shortly thereafter, he was diagnosed with total kidney failure and had to undergo rigorous dialysis treatments. It was during this time that he took up color pencils and would draw during his treatments. He has established a unique body of work all done with color pencils.

Gene’s work represents religious and family themes, including community events and locations with an emphasis on people in particular African-American life and culture. “We are delighted to be hosting Gene’s work again,” said Heather Heath, Executive Director. “It is amazing the depth and vibrancy he achieves in what many may consider a very simple medium. I know patrons will be impressed and moved by his work.”

Join us for the opening reception on First Friday, July 6th or stop by The Ritz Theatre Gallery Tuesday – Friday 9 am to 5 pm during the month of July or by appointment. For more information, please call 912.262.6934 or email info@goldenislesarts.org.
