Cultural Art Happenings
 September 2014  
School is back in session, and that means band, choir and other kinds of music education are hitting a high note. More than three-quarters of Americans had some sort of music education in school, according to a Harris Poll taken earlier this year. Almost half of those involved in music said it provided them with creative problem solving skills and flexibility in a work situation.
Music education prepares people for life. That, art lovers, is music to our ears!
There's plenty to see, hear and do in our city this month, including an Abilene Philharmonic concert and an Artfully Abilene weekend of art exhibit openings. You also have time to sign up for a season subscription for the four Broadway in Abilene shows coming to the Abilene Civic Center. Hurry and reserve your seat!
Speaking of seats ... we have a few more left for the Jess Cagle event Oct. 18 honoring PEOPLE's top editor! Tickets are going fast. Seventy-one percent of our tables are sold! Give us a call for more information. 

Artfully Yours,

HSU Theatre takes stab at "Gruesome Playground Injuries"
An accident prone dare devil and a caustic masochist navigate friendship, love and the squishy parts that lie in between in Hardin-Simmons University's "Gruesome Playground Injuries." In a series of non-linear vignettes that bounce over three decades of a relationship, Doug and Kayleen meet in a school nurse's office and build a complex connection over a lifetime of injuries, both physical and emotional. Truly a different type of love story. Directed by Samuel Cress. Showing at Down Center Stage at 7:30 p.m. Sept. 4-6 and at 2 p.m. Sept. 7. Tickets are $8 general admission, $5 military/seniors/students and free for HSU employees and students.

A hip "Midsummer Night's Dream" with modern music
This is no stuffy William Shakespeare production! Hardin-Simmons University's "Midsummer Night's Dream" promises enchantment at its hippest. Mischief-making sprites, young mortals searching for love, earnest drudges rehearsing a play. ...
