Every Friday, Tony Allegretti records a segment titled "Hot Ticket" for WJCT. The segment features weekend events pertaining to art and culture. Tune in to 89.9 FM on Friday mornings to hear the "Hot Ticket" when it airs, or read the transcription here.
There is no shortage of arts and culture available in lovely north Florida this holiday season.
Tonight, make it a Soulful Christmas with the Ritz Voices and enjoy great holiday classics and the Ritz Voices traditional gospel favorites. Deb McDuffie returns and she's bringing the dance ensemble and all-star jazz band with her. Curtains are at 7:00 PM tonight at the historic Ritz Theatre.
Tomorrow, catch the opening of James McBey's Heroes and Battlefields at the Cummer Museum of Art and Gardens. These prints are from an embedded artist in the British Army who captures the end of the first World War. Heroes and Battlefields opens tomorrow, 100 years after the American entry to World War One.
Tomorrow night, get a jump on 2017 and catch the future TRUTH & PROOF at the Performers Academy. This youth open mic hosted by Ebony Payne English features dynamic local rappers, actors, poets, dancers, singers and comedians to go with the yet-to-be discovered youths who will grab the mic right. Truth and Proof kicks off tomorrow night at 6:00 PM.
Remember when you gift art from a local artist, its a gift to your karma, a gift to the artist who can use the resources, and a gift to the recipient that will keep on giving.
I'm Tony Allegretti, and that is your hot... ticket.
