DCCA presents Melissa Manchester Saturday,
April 5 at St. Clair Memorial Hall.
Darke County Center for the Arts will present Grammy-Award-winning singer/songwriter Melissa Manchester in concert at Henry St. Clair Memorial Hall in Greenville on Saturday, April 5; the show begins at 8 p.m. “To say that we are excited about presenting this music legend in our community as part of DCCA's Artists Series would be a vast understatement,” said DCCA Artistic Director Keith Rawlins. “We can hardly wait to hear that lush, passionate voice performing all the hits you know plus lots more in our acoustically perfect auditorium,” Rawlins stated.

Known as a master of smooth, romantic ballads such as “Don't Cry Out Loud” and “Midnight Blue,” Melissa Manchester won a Grammy for Best Female Vocal Performance in 1982 with her biggest hit, “You Should Hear How She Talks About You.” The artist has combined her singing and acting talents in starring roles in Andrew Lloyd Weber's Song and Dance and Music of the Night, and has appeared on television and in films. Melissa Manchester has captivated audiences on stage and screen for more than three decades. “Her ability to not only survive but thrive in the music world for so very long and through so many changes is due to her pure, unadulterated talent,” Mr. Rawlins remarked.

The Bistro Off Broadway is sponsoring the Melissa Manchester concert. Additionally, the Ohio Arts Council 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.

Tickets for the show cost $30, and can be reserved by contacting DCCA at 937-547-0908 or, or purchased at DCCA's office located within Greenville Public Library, as well as online at If any remain by showtime, tickets will also be available at the door prior to the performance.
