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, May 3 “The Music of Mozart” 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, “DCCA counts itself very fortunate to have the support of individuals who recognize the value of the performing arts and who choose to give of their personal funds to help make the programs accessible and more affordable. Their donation provides the opportunity to experience the beauty of live performances in a jewel of our community, St. Clair Memorial Hall,” she concluded.

Formed in 1943 as The Friends of Music, the Toledo Symphony has grown from a group of twenty-two part-time musicians to become a regional orchestra employing nearly eighty professional full-time musicians who continue to grow in artistic quality and relevance, having ended their 2011 season with a critically acclaimed performance at Carnegie Hall. TSO remains committed to taking music to the people, playing in venues as varied as churches, schools, and universities, and supports community arts organizations like DCCA by traveling to perform in concert halls in small towns and rural areas.

TSO's concert in Greenville will be conducted by Jeffrey Pollack, a conductor known not only for the musicality of his performances, but also for his innate ability to connect with audiences. Mr. Pollock has worked with orchestras across North America; in addition to creating a series of sold-out family and education concerts while Associate Conductor with the Fort Worth Symphony, he conducted a diverse pops series that featured headliners Roberta Flack, Randy Newman, and Wynonna Judd.

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. To order, contact DCCA at www.centerforarts.net 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.
