Welcome to our 15th Anniversary Season!

Angelina Arts Alliance had its inaugural season in 2001, with a sold-out performance featuring Marvin Hamlisch--do you remember?  This year we kickoff our 15th Anniversary Season of celebration with our 100th Performing Arts Series performance--An Evening With Vince Gill. The season will also include two special events for the entire community. In November we will bring an artist with a big vision to Lufkin for a week.  He will be working with students, teachers, and members of the community to create 15 pieces of permanent art to be installed throughout the Lufkin area--It is called Mobilizing Our Community! Check out the website for more information. Then in January, we will have a FREE Family FunDay.  Look at the Family FunDay page for all the exciting activities. 

The Temple Theater was built to enrich our college and our community, and is still the only state-of-the-art performing arts facility within 80 miles--and we are blessed to have it.  Many world-class celebrities, Broadway musicals, ballet/theater companies and art enriched educational programs have graced our stage since 2001.  We are so grateful for the wonderful memories we have shared together and look forward to many more!

Black Violin moved to Temple Theater

The mission of Angelina Arts Alliance is to Enrich, Entertain and Educate by Presenting and Promoting Performing Arts. In tune with that mission, the Arts Alliance proudly presents BLACK VIOLIN, Tuesday, February 9th at 7:00pm at Temple Theater on the Angelina College campus, as part of the 2015-2016 Schooltime Outreach Series.  In addition to three schooltime performances, we will be presenting this special public performance in honor of Black History month, along with Angelina College, who will be presenting their Black History month exhibition and Live Poets Society Poetry Recital in the Theater Art Gallery at 5:30pm.  BLACK VIOLIN is family friendly and promises to be as thrilling for parents as it is for children and students. It is also ‘pocket-book’ friendly with tickets priced at $5 for adults and $3 for children / students. The 2015-16 Schooltime Series is underwritten by funds generously provided by T.L.L. Temple Foundation, with additional sponsorship support from The Heart Institute of East Texas, Mary K. & Clifford Grum, and Goodwin-Lasiter-Strong.

BLACK VIOLIN began a decade ago when Will Baptiste and Kevin “Kev” Marcus decided to blend classical, hip-hop, rock, R&B and bluegrass music.  Named one of the hottest bands of the year at Austin’s South by Southwest in 2013, these classically trained violin and viola virtuosos are accompanied by their band, featuring ace turntable whiz DJTK, and drummer Beatdown.  Their groundbreaking classical mash-up has taken them to 36 countries, three Super Bowls and collaborations with P. Diddy, Kanye West, Aretha Franklin, Alicia Keys and The Eagles. So bring the family and open your ears, your hearts and souls – to the Live Poets Society Poetry Recital--and the genre busting sounds of BLACK VIOLIN.  It's violin like you've never heard it before!
