The Troy Council on the Arts and Humanities and Troy State University have planned the usual high caliber programs with something for everyone during the 2001-2002 season.

The season begins at 2:30 p.m Sunday with the All-American Boys Chorus concert at the Claudia Crosby Theater on the campus of Troy State University.

Tickets are $15 for adults and $10 for students. However, those who support the arts are encouraged to take advantage of the patron’s subscription drive which offers the best ticket in town, said Elaine Blair, chairperson of the patrons committee.

‘We have 28 events on the calendar this season and we have different levels for ticket subscriptions," she said. "Promoter subscriptions begin at $75 and include one season ticket. Grand Patron subscriptions begin at $150 and include two season tickets and Benefactor subscriptions begin at $250 and include four season tickets."

Those who plan to purchase patron/season ticket subscriptions are encouraged to do so before Sunday, so they will be able to take advantage of the opportunity to attend the All-American Boys Chorus on their season subscription.

With a season subscription patrons may enjoy such outstanding events as "Honky Tonk Angels" presented by the Springer Theater in Columbus Ga. and Mac Frampton and the Hollywood Hill Orchestra and holiday concerts including, the Veteran’s Day Concert, Handel’s "Messiah," "Sounds of the Season," and "Christmas in Troy" and TSU theater productions, "Agnes of God," "Conecuh People" and "Godspell."

In addition, there are other concerts, art exhibitions and the annual Jean Lake Festival.

A patron/season ticket subscription provides outstanding arts entertainment at less than $3 a ticket and that’s the best ticket in town or anywhere around, Blair said.

"Your patron support makes possible other activities in our community," Blair said. It also gives support to the art, music and drama programs in local school and art and music scholarships for talented students, performances by the Birmingham Children’s Theater, opportunities for talented art students to display their work and many other ways in which the arts council supports the arts in our city and county."

To become a patron of the arts, call Blair at 566-0834, David Dye, 670-3869 or Ann Williams, 566-1117 to subscribe.
