Fine Arts Students to Perform “Amid Rugged Mountains” at Asheville Art Museum

Asheville School’s fine arts students have the opportunity to perform at the newly renovated Asheville Art Museum. Their “Amid Rugged Mountains” performance is on November 18 from 6:15 to 7 p.m. in downtown Asheville.

“We are so grateful for the incredible resource our relationship with the Asheville Art Museum provides Asheville School students,” said Chair of the Fine Arts Department Kathy Leiner. “We are very excited to share our talented Fine Arts students with the greater Asheville community in the beautiful new space ​during the inaugural month.”

From the Asheville Art Museum:

Join us for an evening program featuring Asheville School’s Handbell Ensemble and Chorale. Musical selections include shape-note hymn tunes from William Walker’s Southern Harmony. The music program is complemented by an original choreographed work inspired by our current exhibition, Appalachia Now!, by Asheville School dance students.

Preceding the evening program, Asheville School students are popping up in the Exhibition Halls. As you visit Appalachia Now!, enjoy interacting with visual arts students sketching after the works on view, or catch an impromptu spoken-word performance. Pre-programs take place 4:30–5:30 p.m. and are free for Museum Members or included with admission.

Space is limited; pre-sales close 11/18/19, 12 p.m. Click here to purchase your ticket online; for more information or to purchase by phone, call 828.253.3227 x122.
