Darke County Center for the Arts will close their 2012-2013 Artists Series season on Saturday, April 27 by presenting Toledo Symphony Orchestra performing their program of stirring classics entitled “Classical Thunder” at Henry St. Clair Memorial Hall in Greenville. “This will be a spectacular program of rousing music that will provide an exciting and memorable experience for music lovers of all ages,” said DCCA Artistic Director Keith Rawlins. The concert begins at 8 p.m.

The Toledo Symphony Orchestra was founded in 1943, and has grown from a group of twenty-two part-time musicians to a highly-respected regional orchestra employing nearly eighty professional musicians committed to sharing their joy in playing. “Classical Thunder” will be conducted by Jeffrey Pollock, an international conductor known for his ability to connect with audiences as well as for the musicality of his performances. According to Rawlins, the program will include the fiery music of Wagner, Stravinsky, and Khachaturian, as well as Tchaikovsky's stirring “1812 Overture.”

This concert by the Toledo Symphony Orchestra is sponsored by Jim and Enid Goubeaux, Greenville Federal, and Ami McClurkin. DCCA also receives financial support from Harry D. and Esther Stephens Memorial, Ketrow Foundation, and the Lydia E. Schaurer Memorial Trust Fund. Additionally, the Ohio Arts Council helps fund this program with state tax dollars to encourage economic growth, educational excellence and cultural enrichment for all Ohioans. This program is sponsored in part by an award from the National Endowment for the Arts.
