Big band music, retro art coming to Thomasville

THOMASVILLE —  For one night, and one night only, the Savoy Club comes to life with all the sights and sounds from the great swing era.  It’s an evening of thumping bass rhythms, high trombones and an exhilarating visual display that will make you feel as if you are front and center at the famous Savoy Club in Harlem.

Presented by Thomasville Center for the Arts and South Georgia Ballet, Swingin’ at the Savoy infuses art, live music and dance into one exciting evening, Saturday, Feb. 2 at the Center for the Arts.

Swingin’ at the Savoy will open at 6 p.m. with a wine and cheese reception, and a dazzling art exhibition bringing to mind a different era of cool sophistication, when men donned tuxes for the evening and women dressed in silk.  Tallahassee artist Anna Kincaide Horne captures a classic, timeless look in her work which is featured in the main gallery at the Center, and available for purchase or commission.

“There’s something real and seductive that makes you stop and admire what she’s captured,” said TCA Adult Programs Director Darlene Mathis. “I was hooked the minute I saw the first piece. Her work has the Sinatra element that spans generations.”

See Friday's edition for more details.
