Join us for an evening program featuring Asheville School’s Handbell Ensemble and Chorale. Musical selections include shape-note hymn tunes from William Walker’s Southern Harmony. The music program is complemented by an original choreographed work inspired by our current exhibition, Appalachia Now!, by Asheville School dance students.

Preceding the evening program, Asheville School students are popping up in the Exhibition Halls. As you visit Appalachia Now!, enjoy interacting with visual-arts students sketching after the works on view, or catch an impromptu spoken-word performance. Pre-programs take place 4:30–5:30pm, and are free for Museum Members or included with admission.
