Mysteries Below Ground @ Tallahassee Museum | Tallahassee | Florida | United States

In the first comprehensive and complete exhibit of its kind, Mysteries Below Ground: The Architecture of Ant Nests explores the intricate workings of 25 underground ant nests. This exhibit will reveal the enormous range of size and complexity of ant nest structure and reflects the range of scales in which ants live their lives. The exhibit also dives into Dr. Walter Tschinkel’s method of metal casting and the ways in which metal casting reveals a complete, precise and detailed version of ant nest architecture. Dr. Tschinkel’s casts have been featured in 16 museums around the world, from Paris to Hong Kong, including two casts at the Smithsonian Museum of Natural History. This exhibit will only be here until December 31, 2018, so don’t miss this extraordinary opportunity.

Tallahassee Symphony Orchestra Presents: An Electric Evening @ Ruby DIamond Auditorium
Oct 19 @ 8:00 pm – 10:00 pm
Tallahassee Symphony Orchestra Presents: An Electric Evening @ Ruby DIamond Auditorium | Tallahassee | Florida | United States

Our season opener will be both literally and figuratively electric! 41-year-old Mason Bates (DJ, Grammy-nominee, composer-in-residence at the Kennedy Center, and 2018 Composer of the Year) is known for his expansion of the orchestra to include electronics, and Mothership is no exception. Compared to Bates, Mozart was a baby (a mere 35 years old) when he wrote his elegant and graceful clarinet concerto just two months before his untimely death. Joining the TSO for this performance is the magnetic Anthony McGill, principal clarinetist of the New York Philharmonic. Rounding out the evening is Tchaikovsky’s high-wattage Fifth Symphony, one of the most beloved Romantic works.

Featuring clarinetist, Anthony McGill

Bates, Mothership
Mozart, Clarinet Concerto, K. 622
Tchaikovsky, Symphony No. 5 in E minor, Op. 64
