MUSIC FOR FAMILIES
Come join the Pensacola Symphony for an exciting fun filled morning the entire family will enjoy! This interactive event will take place at the Saenger Theatre on Saturday May 23rd with pre-concert activities starting at 9:30 am followed immediately by an hour long concert at 11:00 am.
Music for Families provides a fun and entertaining introduction to classical music for children ages 3-12. A variety of hands-on activities will be in the lobby of the Saenger, featuring our partners at the MESS Hall, UWF Historic Trust, West Florida Public Libraries, Escambia County Supervisor of Elections, IHMC, local artist Randy New and more! There will also be an interactive art station, a drum circle, and an Instrument Petting Zoo. The Instrument Petting Zoo allows children of all ages (and adults!) to try their favorite instruments and meet the musicians.
For this year’s concert, the audience joins the Symphony on a musical adventure aboard a magical train! Train stops along the way will guide the audience on a journey discovering all the instrument families of the orchestra through favorite musical works such as the theme from Star Wars, William Tell Overture, selections from Disney’s Frozen, and many more!
Tickets are available now at only $5. Order online at pensacolasymphony.com or call the PSO office at 850-435-2533.
FRIENDS OF LOBLOLLY PRESENTS "RAMBELING ROSE"
The Loblolly Theatre closed its doors in October of 2012 after thirteen seasons presenting original plays in an intimate theatre. In that time 75 original plays were premiered. "Friends of Loblolly", feeling the absence of this work, planted the seed, suggesting a revival of a play from 2001, RAMBLING ROSE and Other Idiosyncrasies of the Garden. The seed germinated and was nourished, and the time for blooming predicted for late May.
RAMBLING ROSE is a play for the spring, set in the garden. The garden is a place for flourishing, a place for speaking and listening, where the characters are floral and remain true to themselves. We are welcomed by the ramblings of ROSE, the delicate expression of LADY ASTER, the caustic edge of BRAMBLE, the charm of BLUEBELLE, the elusiveness of CLOVER, the mystery of PALMETTA, and the brief splash of MORNING GLORY. Any floral characteristics resembling human ones are purely intentional. There is something to be heard; there is something to be said. Actual plants which grace the garden will be auctioned off to the audience during the play.
To secure your seat in the garden, we suggest pre-buying your ticket, as there is limited seating. Call 479-4530 to reserve seats. For more information, visit the website at http://loblollytheatre.com/What_s_Next_.html or log on to Facebook at facebook.com/loblollytheatre

THE LURE OF THE OCEAN: ORIGINAL WORKS BY GUY HARVEY
World-renowned marine conservationist to display artwork at the Pensacola Museum of Art
The Pensacola Museum of Art welcomes The Lure of the Ocean: Original Works by Guy Harvey, May 9 - August 9. Harvey combines his artistic gifts with his background as a marine biologist, diver, photographer and angler to create his unique and colorful pieces.
Harvey is self-taught and credits his childhood growing up on the island of Jamaica for his artistry. While attending a boarding school in England Harvey became enamored with The Old Man and the Sea, by Earnest Hemingway and developed a series of sketches based on the novel. Many years later, in 1985 to be exact, Harvey opened his first solo show that displayed the 44 pen and ink drawings he created based on The Old Man and the Sea.
While Harvey is widely recognized for his aquatic themed merchandise, he is much more than just a t-shirt brand. In addition to being an artist, Harvey is a scientist, conservationist, and explorer. Harvey earned his Ph.D. from the University of the West Indies in 1984 and devotes much of his time to traveling the world in pursuit of unveiling the mysteries of the deep.
This exhibition will also feature a Guy Harvey themed photo booth so visitors can take home a memento of their visit to the exhibition. You can also discover Sea Monsters through Mote Marine Laboratory’s hands-on learning components.
