Mannheim Steamroller Christmas 2015

Friday, November 13, 2015 at 8 PM

Dothan Civic Center

Perhaps the moment when Mannheim Steamroller achieved mainstream success was when they released their first Christmas album in 1984 “Mannheim Steamroller Christmas”. The album was the band’s first to make it on the Billboard 200 album chart and it has been certified 6x Platinum by the RIAA. The songs on the album were almost all traditional Christmas songs presented in a synthpop oriented way and the album is one of the best selling Christmas albums in the US. In 1988 the group released “A Fresh Aire Christmas”, which followed the tradition of their symphonic pop presentation. This album surpassed their first Christmas album in sales and is one of the best selling Christmas albums of all time.

Fairhope Film Festival

Mark your calendars for November 12th-15th, and get ready for four days of brilliant, entertaining and award-winning films screened throughout our beautiful little town on the Bay. Our selection committee has been hard at work throughout this past year, attending some of the world’s best film festivals and reviewing hours of innovative and creative films as part of our mission to deliver the Best of the Best in filmmaking. The four festival venues, within walking distance of each other, will be located in the famous, flower-filled downtown area—considered Carmel by the Bay–convenient to restaurants, hotels, locally owned shops and the town bluffs, which boast sweeping views of the 413 square mile Mobile Bay. The Fairhope Film Festival is a film lover’s film festival, offering participants the opportunity to see world-class award winning films in a unique, picturesque location over a four-day period. The focus is on national and international film festival competition finalists of the past year: the “best of the best” in cinema arts. Notable foreign and feature films, documentaries and shorts—many that never made it to the big box theaters or were only there briefly–will be selected for appreciative audiences. Although the festival will pull out all the stops, Southern-style, to host opening and closing events and parties, the emphasis will be on the art of filmmaking and the experience of seeing exceptional films. Directors, actors and screenwriters will participate in the screenings both in person and via live electronic transmission. The people of the Gulf Coast have always loved a good story. Meet us on our front porch this fall to catch a bay breeze and 70 select tales you won’t forget.
