The Appleton Museum of Art, College of Central Florida, announces its 2019-2020 After Hours schedule. Enjoy music, food and fun at this annual series of musical performances.
The series kicks off in October with an Oktoberfest band, Alpine Express, that entertains audiences with singing, yodeling, audience-participation and more. The high-energy show consists of traditional Oktoberfest music, along with unique folk instruments that may include alphorns, cowbells, the Holzanes G’Lächter (member of the xylophone family) and a singing saw. In December, Marina Tucker of Imperial String Quartet will present selections from the 1800s and other era-appropriate music in combination with the special exhibition “Across the Atlantic: American Impressionism Through the French Lens.” New to the Appleton’s stage, Chris McNeil will entertain guests in February with Southern influenced guitar-playing and singing. Last but not least, the Appleton welcomes back the popular duo Gosia and Ali for a performance in April showcasing the flute, acoustic guitar and vocals.
Admission is $5 for Appleton members; $15 for nonmembers. Tickets are available at Eventbrite.com or by visiting AppletonMuseum.org. Seating for each event is limited to 250. Doors open at 5 p.m. and music begins at 5:30 p.m. Food service and cash bar ends at 7 p.m. For questions, contact AppletonMuseum@cf.edu.
