Darke County Center for the Arts recognizes Greenville Federal as an Impresario sponsor of the upcoming “Music of Mozart” performance by Toledo Symphony Orchestra, at Henry St. Clair Memorial Hall, Saturday, May 3 as the final show in DCCA’s 2013-2014 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 to perform “Music of Mozart” featuring Mozart’s most notable symphonies and music from Zaide to The Magic Flute. 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. 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. Tickets for the Saturday, May 3, 8:00 PM concert are $30.

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 Five Little Monkeys.

“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. The 2013/2014 programs included American roots musicians WILD CARROT performing for students in grades K-3 and CARPE DIEM STRING QUARTET who performed for High School students in the fall. World Class pianist ALPIN HONG performed for Jr. High Students at St. Clair Memorial Hall in March, and MR. BLUE SHOES performed for grades 4-6 sharing his unique version of the story of Blues Music. 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.
