The 2001-2002 Patron/Season Ticket Subscription drive is underway for the Troy Council on the Arts and Humanities and Troy State University.

The calendar of events scheduled makes it the best ticket in town.

The calendar includes such top rated events as the All-American Boys Choir, the theater production, "Agnes of God," Springer Theatre’s "Honky Tonk Angles," Handel’s "Messiah," the musical theater production "Godspell"and Mac Frampton and the Hollywood Hill Orchestra.

n addition, there will be 22 other events, including theater productions, art exhibitions, concerts and an arts festival and antique show.

Don Crapps, president of the arts council, said this year’s calendar is one of the most outstanding lineups of entertainment ever offered.

"The headline event will be the All-American Boys Chorus at 2:30 p.m Sunday, Sept. 23," Crapps said. "We expect the same response to this chorus that we had to the Vienna Choir Boys. The All-American Boys Chorus is just as outstanding and we might enjoy these young men even more because they present audience favorites from America’s musical history."

Crapps said the calendar

also includes seasonal

events, including the very popular Veteran’s Day Concert by the TSU Symphony Band and three holiday events, "Messiah," "Sounds of the Season" and "Christmas in Troy."

"We have something of interest for everyone and everyone will enjoy most of the events we have scheduled," he said. "The Troy Council on the Arts and Humanities and Troy State University will bring 28 events to Troy this year and they are all outstanding."

The patron/season ticket subscriptions make it possible for the arts council to continue to bring outstanding arts entertainment to Troy and Pike County.

"That’s why we need the support of our communities in Pike County," Crapps said. "And, the best way to support our calendar is by becoming a patron of the arts."

The arts council offers five levels of patron participation:

· Benefactor ($250-$400 and more) four season tickets

· Grand Patron ($150 – $249) two season tickets

· Patron ($85 – $149) one season ticket

· Promoter ($75 – $84) one season ticket

· Friend (any contribution) no ticket

"All patron/season subscribers will be listed in the programs unless the patron prefers to remain anonymous," Crapps said.

Checks for ticket subscriptions may be made payable to the Troy Council on the Arts and Humanities and mailed to the arts council, P.O. Box 606, Troy, AL 36081-0606.

Please include name, address, telephone number and patron level.
