The Annette Howell Turner Center for the Arts has announced its SCORE 2021-2022 Classical Music Appreciation Program, which includes four enchanting evenings with renowned musicians from around the world. The concerts will take place in the Turner Center Art Galleries, located at 527 N. Patterson Street, in Valdosta.
The SCORE program is made possible by a grant from the National Endowment for the Arts and a matching sponsorship from Dan and Carolyn Coleman. The 2021-2022 season SCORE offers two student shows in the morning and an adult concert in the evening.
“Through this partnership with the school system of the city of Valdosta and the grants received, the Turner Center will bring every fifth grade student from schools in the city of Valdosta through the galleries to see professional classical music performances for free,” said Executive Director Sementha Mathews. “We are taking all COVID precautions by socially distancing ourselves, wearing masks and live streaming the performance to adjacent galleries or the art park to make the event both educational and safe for all.”
The concert dates for the 2021-2022 season are Tuesday September 7; Tuesday, December 7; Tuesday February 8; and Thursday April 14. For $ 80, customers will receive tickets for all four evening concerts. Individual tickets cost $ 25 each.

A special musical presentation of the Valdosta High School Strings Program will take place on May 10 at 6 p.m. in the Turner Center Art Park. This SCORE season finale is free and open to the public.
