 Darke County Center for the Arts is grateful for funds donated by Second National Bank as an Impressario sponsor of concert pianist ALPIN HONG, the fourth and final Artists Series performance of DCCA’s 2010-2011 season. A "Pianistic Firebrand” according to The New York Times, Alpin Hong’s expansive musical training is only enhanced by his diverse accomplishments in skateboarding, martial arts, and videogames. “DCCA is excited to present this unique concert pianist and arts advocate who so enthusiastically makes classical music appealing to audiences of all ages,” said Julie Strait, Executive Director of Darke County Center for the Arts. “Second National Bank’s support of this program is much appreciated, and enables DCCA to present to our community young, rising, artists of talent such as Alpin Hong,” she concluded.

Alpin Hong will perform at St. Clair Memorial Hall in Greenville, Saturday, February 5, 8:00 pm. Tickets to the show are $20 and may be purchased at the door or in advance by contacting DCCA at 937-547-0908 or

The Second National Bank sponsorship also supports DCCA’s Family Theater Series, performances for children and families. The 2010/11 season began on November 14 with ArtsPower’s lively presentation of The Rainbow Fish. Mermaid Theatre of Nova Scotia delighted the crowd on January 23rd with stunning puppets and props in the retelling of Leo Lionni’s beloved books, Frederick, Swimmy, and Inch By Inch. Leland Faulkner’s World of Wonder will end the series on March 13th with the amazing lost art of shadowgraphs as well as mime and classical magic. All performances take place at St. Clair Memorial Hall in Greenville. Tickets are $5 and can be purchased one month prior to the show at Readmore’s Hallmark in Greenville, and Worch Memorial Public Library in Versailles. Tickets are also available by contacting DCCA at 937-547-0908 or, and may be purchased at the door the day of the show.
