Darke County Center for the Arts recognizes Ted and Diana Abney, owners of The Bistro Off Broadway, for their support of the arts in Darke County. The Abney’s recently hosted a sold out Coffee House Series performance of Cleveland blues guitarist Austin Walkin’ Cane and are sponsoring the upcoming DCCA Artists Series performance of Canada’s internationally-acclaimed invented instrument, power percussion company Scrap Arts Music, at Henry St. Clair Memorial Hall in Greenville on Saturday, March 14th. According to DCCA’s Artistic Director Keith Rawlins, “The Abney’s are a great example of strong community supporters; they not only strengthen downtown Greenville by providing a full service restaurant but also enhance the quality of life in our community by supporting the performing arts and making it possible for DCCA to present high quality artists at a reasonable ticket price.”

The artistic objective of Scrap Arts Music is to create an orchestra of invented instruments created from materials collected in and around their home base of Vancouver Canada, and to use these in original performance-based works. In the spirit of “art music” they give consideration to the visual dimension of musical performance. They take SCRAP, transform it through the ARTS of sculpture and choreography, and create original MUSIC performances for global audiences. Since 2001, they have taken their interdisciplinary project around the world, performed in front of hundreds of thousands of people, and offered numerous workshops, educational performances, and concerts featuring original choreographed sculptural music made from the materials around them.

Tickets to the concert are $25, student tickets are $12.50, all seats are reserved for the 8 p.m. performance. Tickets can be purchased by contacting DCCA at 937-547-0908 or purchased at DCCA's office located within Greenville Public Library, as well as online at Remaining tickets will also be available at the door prior to the performance.
