When he was commissioned to decorate the ceiling in the Gallery of the City of Morganton Municipal Auditorium, contemporary fresco master Benjamin F. Long, IV selected the nine Muses of Greek mythology as fitting subjects for the project because of their legendary role in inspiring all human endeavors in the arts and sciences. The muses were of divine parentage, probably the daughters of Zeus and Mnemosyne, the goddess of memory. They were courtiers of the divinities who inhabited Mount Olympus, and they served as companions of Apollo in his aspect as the god of music. Join us in the CoMMA Gallery as we welcome Benjamin F. Long, IV, fresco artist of “Sacred Dance & The Muses” back to CoMMA for an informative evening about the art of Fresco creation.

Others have attended one of the literally thousands of productions this extraordinary play has received over the years.

With sincerity, honesty, and an utter ease on stage that belies their years, the Malpass Brothers’ smooth vocal blend and skillful musicianship layer infectiously into the deep respect they pay to country legends who have paved the way. Add the funny, off-the-cuff quips between the two 20-something siblings, and the engaging concert becomes a magnetic time-traveling journey to when a calmer rhythm reigned supreme.

Their music is steeped in the legacy of the Louvin Brothers, Johnny Cash, Marty Robbins, Hank Williams, Sr. & others. If you like cornbread and hush puppies, you’re gonna love the Malpass Brothers.

In 1996, an original rock musical by a little-known composer opened on Broadway...and forever changed the landscape of American theatre. Two decades later, Jonathan Larson’s RENT continues to speak loudly and defiantly to audiences across generations and all over the world. And now, this Pulitzer Prize and Tony Award-winning masterpiece returns to the stage in a vibrant 20th anniversary touring production. A re-imagining of Puccini’s La Boheme, RENT follows an unforgettable year in the lives of seven artists struggling to follow their dreams without selling out. With its inspiring message of joy and hope in the face of fear, this timeless celebration of friendship and creativity reminds us to measure our lives with the only thing that truly matters – love.
