“Art and Craft”

Thursday, May 7, 7 p.m.

This documentary retraces the outlandishly funny tale of Mark Landis, art forger/philanthropist/ performance artist, in his madcap romp through the highest echelons of the art world. Landis, who lives in Laurel, will be on hand for the screening. Free thanks to The Dispatch and Catfish Alley Magazine

"A Mother's Day Concert

Sunday, May 10, 2 p.m.


Join Columbus' own Columbus Choral Society as they sing to Mothers everywhere.


$5 at door


The Columbus Choral Society, conducted by Alisa Toy, is a non-profit, auditioned community choir dedicated to bringing quality choral art music to the Golden Triangle region.  The Columbus Choral Society performs two official concerts each year while participating in several smaller fund-raising concerts and charitable appearances throughout the area.  Founded in 2009, CCS has already had the privilege of singing in the Carnegie Hall, NYC’s premiere of "Chronicles of Blue and Gray" in 2014.  Most recently CCS brought this work and its composer, John Purifoy, to Columbus for a spectacular concert commemorating the sesquicentennial of the end of the Civil War.  CCS has performed with various choirs and orchestras, including: Starkville Symphony, Knoxville Choral Society, Maryville College Community Choir, Treasure Coast Community Singers, Starkville Symphony Chorus, Meridian Symphony Chorus, as well as all the choirs of both the University of Southern Mississippi, and Mississippi University for Women.  CCS has sung under the direction of many notable conductors such as Michael Adelson of the New York Philharmonic, and Mack Wilberg of the Mormon Tabernacle Choir.  Research studies state that singing in a choir improves one's physical, emotional, social, and mental health.  Come join CCS for a rehearsal and experience it for yourself.   You will quickly see why the researchers are correct!

Omnova Series

The Omnova Theater has earned a name as one of the best intimate live-performance venues in our area, hosting varied local, regional and even national talent in its 85 seat home. Audiences will hear everything from Mississippi Delta blues, country, bluegrass, classical, jazz and world music to professional storytellers spinning magic with the spoken word.
Open mic shows provide a stage for both established and emerging artists. With such a wonderful array of talent in our area, these are, indeed, some of our most popular shows.
Tickets for all performance are available in advance and at the door--if available. With limited seating in this intimate acoustic space, it's often wise to get your tickets early to assure seating.

YPAS (Young People's Artist Series)

YPAS was developed by the CAC over 25 years ago to provide live performance programs for pre-school, elementary and middle school children in the Golden Triangle and surrounding area.  Musicals, puppetry, dance and various forms of live music have been presented to thousands of students who might not otherwise have this opportunity.  The Arts Council provides curriculum-education support through study guides for each performance.
