Holiday Choir Classic
The Holiday Choir Classic fosters good cheer with a program of yuletide tunes, as angelically performed by three of the area's finest youth singing groups. The sixth and seventh graders of The Falcon Academy of Creative Arts' show off their euphony, while also proving they can can coexist without an elaborate tribute system based on Lunchables. The Summit Children's Choir Touring Ensemble exercise the fruits of their intensive training, exhibiting the vocal mastery that has earned them plaudits across the region. SETC Heid's School of Musical Arts round out the night, with singers ranging from grades 4 to 12.
Akron Civic Theatre
The medieval carvings, European antiques, and Italian alabaster sculptures at the Akron Civic Theatre absorb the ascending harmonies of symphony concerts and heavy rock ‘n’ roll alike. Built in 1929 to resemble a Moorish castle, the venue has maintained much of its historic charm, including the exceedingly rare atmospheric ceiling, in which stars twinkle and clouds float by as mesmerizingly as the last few corn flakes atop a bowl of milk.
E.J. Thomas Hall
Since 1973, The University of Akron's E.J. Thomas Hall has been the center of Akron's performing arts scene. The three-level facility, which occupies three acres of The University of Akron campus, boasts a massive, 44-ton movable ceiling that can shift to enclose the first or second levels. The position of the ceiling has a dramatic effect on the hall's volume and acoustics, so it is controlled by a computer precisely managing 27 counterweights. The hall's ability to transform from an intimate one-level performance space to a vast three-level concert hall allows it to host performances of a variety of sizes and styles by university students and faculty as well as the Akron Symphony Orchestra, the Tuesday Musical Association, the Children’s Concert Society, and the Akron Youth Symphony.
