Huka Entertainment presents Rockstar Energy Drink Taste of Chaos Tour featuring Dashboard confessional, Taking Back Sunday, Saosin, The Early November

Jun 26, 2016

The Pavillion at the Centre of Tallahassee
A room full of music and people isn't so strange. The trick is filling the spaces in between. When truth finds a melody, strangers disappear, and suddenly everyone belongs. And Chris Carrabba knows how to fill a room better than anyone.
He can call it luck, but for more than a decade now, Dashboard Confessional has cultivated the kind of connection with fans that most songwriters spend a lifetime pursuing. Since the release of Swiss Army Romance in 2000, Carrabba's fearless honesty has inspired fierce loyalty from anyone seeking truth in music. You cannot fake the truth. You can't even hide from it. So the best songwriters dive deeply into it, coming out the other side armed with sing-a-long anthems."Music is all things to me," Carrabba says. "It's a respite from real life, but it's also a place contemplate and begin to understand what you're going through. Music can clarify how things are affecting you."

The Pavillion at the Centre of Tallahassee
Steve Miller was a mainstay of the San Francisco music scene that upended
American culture in the late '60s. With albums like Children of the Future,
Sailor and Brave New World, Miller perfected a psychedelic blues sound that
drew on the deepest sources of American roots music and simultaneously
articulated a compelling vision of what music-and society-could be in the years to
come.
Then, in the '70s, Miller crafted a brand of rock 'n' roll music that was polished,
exciting and irresistible, and that has dominated radio through today. Hit
followed hit in an endless flow: "The Joker," "Livin' in the USA," "Take the Money
and Run," "Rock'n Me," "Fly Like an Eagle," "Jet Airliner," "Jungle Love," and
"Abracadabra" among them. To this day, these songs are instantly recognizable
when they come on the radio-and impossible not to sing along with.
Running through Miller's catalogue is a combination of virtuosity and songcraft
along with melodic vocals and signature guitar riffs. His parents were jazz
aficionados -- Les Paul was his godfather -- so as a budding guitarist and singer,
Miller absorbed valuable lessons from their musical tradition. When the family
moved to Texas, Miller deepened his education in the blues, meeting T-Bone
Walker and learning to sing and play listening to him and Jimmy Reed. Miller
then moved to Chicago where he played with Muddy Waters, Howlin' Wolf,
Lightnin' Hopkins, Buddy Guy and Paul Butterfield.

Camp Dawson

Jun 6, 2016 - Jun 10, 2016

Thomas County Museum of History, 725 N. Dawson Street, Thomasville, GA
Introducing Camp Dawson!
This year we’re adding a few new twists to the perennial favorite, Time Travelers Club History Camp. Have no fear, our revamped Camp Dawson is rooted in the same activities and themes that have inspired and engaged Thomas County campers for nearly 20 years, just with a little added museum mischief and adventure. In addition to our traditional hands-on history-based activities, we want to engage our campers in new explorations of the community around us. We are embracing the elements of S.T.E.A.H.M: Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, History, and Math that can be found and applied in our own backyard about our community’s evolution.

Campers will progress through Thomas County history, starting with the Native Americans and work their way up to the 20th-Century using resources available here at the Museum and in our surrounding neighborhood, including the Lapham-Patterson House. We’ll explore what makes Thomasville and Thomas County unique while putting ourselves in the place of past Thomasvillians. We hope that you’ll join us June 6-10, 2016 for a week of adventure and discovery! Fees: $100, Members, $125 Non-Members. Includes all craft supplies, camp shirt, and snack daily
Camp registration information will be mailed to members of the Thomas County Historical Society soon. At that time, rising 3rd through 6th graders may register for both Camp Dawson. To join or renew your membership, please visit thomascountyhistory.org/join. Priority registration will be given to members of the Historical Society and will open to the public soon after.

Camp LPH

Jun 21, 2016 - Jun 23, 2016

The Lapham-Patterson House 626 N. Dawson Street, Thomasville GA
Introducing Camp LPH! We’re expanding our focus at what was formerly known as Victorian Thomasville Camp. Now called, Camp LPH, we will explore the time period between the 1880’s when the Lapham-Patterson House was constructed, to the 1940’s, nearing the end of the Patterson family’s occupation of the house. This means we can dig deeper into the house, its history, and its families. Camp LPH will still culminate in the campers’ construction and launch of hot air balloons to commemorate the c. 1886 launch of a hot air balloon over Thomasville. Camp LPH, June 21-23, 2016. Fees: $75, Members, $100 Non-Members. Includes all craft supplies and snack daily.

Camp registration information will be mailed to members of the Thomas County Historical Society soon. At that time, rising 3rd through 6th graders may register for Camp LPH.

MENDELSSOHN Symphony No. 4 in A Major, Op. 90
DVOŘÁK Cello Concerto in B Minor, Op. 104, Colin Carr, cello

The TSO opens the final concert of its season with the Florida
premiere of a new work by Christopher Theofanidis, a composer
possessing a unique and eloquent vision. Part of a commissioning
consortium, the new piece will receive its US premiere in Plymouth,
MA on October 7, 2015.* Closing out the first half is Mendelssohn’s
Italian symphony. Known for his appreciation of history, the composer
adapted ancient Italianate dances and folk-inspired melodies
throughout this virtuosic, rustic piece. Last on the program is Dvořák’s
seminal cello concerto, played by British master Colin Carr. Slavic in
sentiment and style, this composition offers a heartfelt, triumphant
journey for performers and audiences alike.

Tickets on sale now.


All is well in Symphony City, which is watched over by the musical superhero “Fortissimo” (as passage performed or marked to be performed very loudly.
That is, until the arrival of his arch-nemesis, “Dr. Dissonance” (lack of harmony among musical notes). In this hilarious and highly educational show, Director Darko Butorac plays the role of musical superhero Fortissimo, whose superhero power is to rid the world of bad music. Unfortunately for him, the world in general, dastardly Dr. Dissonance has defeated him, the treble maker that he is, and Fortissimo needs the help of the audience. Come hear the two wage battle between good music and cacophony.

May the most powerful force win!
