Uncovering Goodwood's Great Books @ Goodwood Museum & Gardens

On a tour of Goodwood Museum & Gardens, Dr. Michael Wagoner discovered a treasure trove…. a whole parlor-ful of books. He was intrigued. There were books from the 16th to 18th centuries, books signed by famous authors, first editions, rare books, a complete set of Shakespeare and stories about Br’er Rabbit. Dr. Wagoner’s tour of the house ended right there. He has continued researching the Goodwood books ever since.

Join Dr. Wagoner as he introduces you to this collection on May 3rd at Noon in Goodwood’s Jubilee Cottage.

Michael M. Wagoner holds a PhD in English Literature from Florida State and is currently serving as a Visiting Assistant Professor in the English department. His research focuses on early modern drama, examining the form of interruptions within theatrical texts. He has attended courses at the Rare Book School and is preparing an edition of a Manuscript play held at the Folger Shakespeare Library.

Tallahassee Symphony Orchestra Presents: Motion & Mood Pictures @ Ruby Diamond Auditorium
May 4 @ 8:00 pm – 10:00 pm
Tallahassee Symphony Orchestra Presents: Motion & Mood Pictures @ Ruby Diamond Auditorium | Tallahassee | Florida | United States

This knockout season finale presents music related to “pictures,” both motion and mood. Bernard Hermann and Erich Korngold were both master film-score composers, and although the latter’s Violin Concerto was not specifically written for the cinema, it deeply inhabits the sound world of the silver screen. Holst’s iconic The Planets, which he described as “a series of mood pictures,” was born from the composer’s fleeting interest in astrology, and has become one of the most oft-performed and beloved orchestral pieces.

Featuring violinist, William Hagen

Hermann, Vertigo Suite
Korngold, Violin Concerto, Op. 35
Holst, The Planets, Op. 32
