Rabbit Tales and Francine Reed in Decatur on Sunday

Sunday, February 26 promises to be a day full of activities in the City of Decatur and the musical options range from opera to the blues with plenty of tasty town fare and shopping inbetween.

The Atlanta Opera is bringing a  community performance of Rabbit Tales, a world premiere Atlanta Opera Commisison for the 2011-2012 season to the Decatur High School Performing Arts Auditorium at 3 p.m.

Based on the Br’er Rabbit stories by Joel Chandler Harris, the production is a contemporary, light-hearted opera that combines several story lines from Native American, African and Cajun Folklore.  Rabbit Tales is written and composed by Atlanta-based local artists.  Click here to purchase tickets.

After that, plan to head over to Eddie’s Attic for Francine Reed’s annual Black History Month Performance especially for Decatur.  Francine has been a part of Decatur’s Black History celebration since its inception.

Thanks to Decatur’s Mayor Emerita Elizabeth Wilson Francine comes back year after year to sing her heart out for Decatur.  There are two shows – 6 p.m. and 9 p.m. and the tickets are a mere $20 – an awesome price for a special show!

While you are here, check out some of our fabulous restaurants and see why we were chosen as one of Southern Living’s Top Ten Tastiest Towns in the South.  If you are still feeling like you need some more culture, stop by The Seen Gallery and take a look at their newly opened show Voyages featuring paintings by Vickie Martin.
