Darke County Center for the Arts recognizes Greenville National Bank as a sponsor of the Artists Series performance of world class pianist Alpin Hong. “Greenville National Bank’s sponsorship donation helps make it possible to present high quality performing artists in our hometown at a price that is almost always significantly less than would be paid in a larger metropolitan area,” said Andrea Jordan, Executive Director of DCCA. “We appreciate Greenville National Bank’s support of the Arts and their commitment to making these opportunities available and affordable in our community,” she concluded.

Darke County Center for the Arts will present concert pianist Alpin Hong at Henry St. Clair Memorial Hall in Greenville on Saturday, March 8. The New York Times lauded the artist's “crystalline energy. . . clear and persuasive ideas. . . and remarkable breadth” and called Alpin “a pianistic firebrand” in its review of his standing-room only recital debut at Carnegie Hall. Alpin's warm humor and boundless energy combined with his wide-ranging interests and amazing skill at the piano help him connect to people of all ages, experiences, and backgrounds. The concert, part of DCCA's Artists Series, begins at 8 p.m.

Tickets for the Artists Series concert cost $20, and can be reserved by contacting DCCA at 937-547-0908 or purchased at DCCA's office located within Greenville Public Library, as well as online at Tickets will also be available at the door prior to the performance.

The Alpin Hong concert is also sponsored by Jim and Enid, with additional support from the Ohio Arts Council which helped fund this program with state tax dollars to encourage economic growth, educational excellence and cultural enrichment for all Ohioans. DCCA also receives operating support from the Harry D. and Esther Stephens Memorial as well as funding from the Ketrow Foundation and Lydia E. Schaurer Memorial Trust Fund.

Alpin Hong will also perform for junior high students as part of DCCA's Arts In Education program on March 6 and 7. These performances are free and open to the public. Performance schedules are arranged in cooperation with local public schools; contact DCCA for more information regarding specific times for the AIE shows, also at St. Clair Memorial Hall.
