Greenville Federal has donated funds to Darke County Center for the Arts sponsoring the upcoming “Classical Thunder” performance by Toledo Symphony Orchestra, at Henry St. Clair Memorial Hall as the final show in DCCA’s 2012-2013 Artists Series. Greenville Federal also supports DCCA’s Family Theatre Series and Arts in Education programs which benefit Darke County youth and their families. According to DCCA Executive Director Andrea Jordan, “DCCA is grateful for Greenville Federal’s sponsorship at the Impresario Level, DCCA’s highest level of sponsorship, which helps enable our efforts to provide culturally enriching experiences for the citizens of our community.”

Toledo Symphony Orchestra will fill the stage at St. Clair Memorial Hall with its 60-member orchestra to perform “Classical Thunder” featuring 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”.

Tickets for the Saturday, April 27, 8:00 PM concert are $30 and may be purchased at the door or ordered in advance; good seats are still available. Contact DCCA at (937) 547-0908 or for tickets or information.

DCCA’s Family Theatre Series presents three shows each season to inspire the imaginations of the young and young at heart, encouraging the expression of creativity. The series attracts a wide-ranging audience that includes many preschool children enjoying their first theater experience, as well as senior citizens who enjoy the shows’ strong depiction of traditional values. The season closed this past Sunday afternoon with American Family Theatre’s Sleeping Beauty.

“To support of Greenville Federal allows DCCA to not only provide quality performances to families, but also take our Arts in Education outreach programs to every student in the Darke county public schools,” stated Jordan.

DCCA’s Arts In Education program annually takes professional performing artists to all grades of all Greenville City and Darke County schools. This season included Kid Power’s musical journey teaching K-3 students the value of nutrition in Operation Lunch Line; The Eisenhower Dance Ensemble’s Kid’s ‘n Motion inspired students in grades 4-6 to learn, create, and enjoy dance; TheatreWorksUSA’s Through the Eyes of a Friend which gave students in grades 7 & 8 a new perspective on the life of Anne Frank; and Freestyle Music Writing with Jonathan Kingham, who made song writing easy for high school students. Arts In Education programs are free of charge and are open to the public.

Jim and Enid Goubeaux and Ami McClurkin 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.
