Verd & Gini Stuckey and DCCA Executive Director Andrea Jordan

Verd and Gini Stuckey have donated funds in the name of their daughter, Ami McClurkin, sponsoring the Saturday, April 27th “Classical Thunder” performance by the Toledo Symphony Orchestra. Darke County Center for the Arts presents an orchestral performance annually as part of its Artists Series. DCCA Executive Director Andrea Jordan stated, “We are humbled and yet proud to have the support of individuals who recognize and appreciate the importance of the arts and choose to support arts programming in our community.” “DCCA is fortunate to have strong community support which enables us to present professional performing artists for local residents to enjoy,” she concluded.

The Toledo Symphony Orchestra will be performing the program “Classical Thunder” including some of the most powerful music ever written, including fierce and rousing selections such as Wagner’s “Ride of the Valkyries”, Beethoven’s “Symphony No. 6” and Tchaikovsky’s “1812 Overture”.

Jim and Enid Goubeaux and Greenville Federal are also sponsors of the Toledo Symphony Orchestra performance. Additionally, the Harry D. and Esther Stephens Memorial Fund as well as the Ohio Arts Council, which helps fund Darke County Center for the Arts with state tax dollars to encourage economic growth, educational excellence, and cultural enrichment for all Ohioans, provide operating support.

Tickets for Toledo Symphony Orchestra cost $30 for adults and $15 for students; good seats are still available. To order, contact DCCA at or call 937-547-0908. Tickets will also be sold at the door. The concert begins at 8:00 pm at Henry St. Clair Memorial Hall.
