Canvas, Stage and More: What's happening in the arts


Community Chorus plans Masterworks Concert

St. Augustine Community Chorus returns with its Masterworks Concert at 7 p.m. May 14 at Ancient City Baptist Church, 27 Sevilla St., St. Augustine.

In “Emerging Light,” the chorus will add its collective voices to a masterworks concert celebrating rejuvenation.

The chorus will perform from parts 2 and 3 of “The Messiah.” Handel’s work includes familiar pieces such as “The Hallelujah Chorus” and “Worthy is the Lamb.” This is an opportunity to hear some rarely performed but equally moving pieces. 

In the prelude to “The Messiah,” the concert will include more modern works. The singers will be accompanied by a chamber orchestra.

This is a Romanza Festivale concert. For tickets and information, go to

The exhibition is presented as part of the museum’s ongoing celebration of its 60th anniversary year. Since its opening in 1961, the museum’s permanent collection has grown from 60 objects bequeathed by founder Ninah Cummer to more than 5,000 objects.

“Revolve: Spotlight on the Permanent Collection” pairs works by artists in the collection with those of contemporary artists, including Tiffany Chung, Titus Kaphar, Amy Sherald, Monir Shahroud Farmanfarmaian, Juan Fontanive, Mildred Thompson, Jean-Ulrick Désert, Pat Steir, Ben Durham, Yeesookyoung, Lalla Essaydi and Calida Garcia Rawles.
