DCCA Celebrates Successful 2014-2015 Season

Darke County Center for the Arts recognizes the community for their support of the arts and a successful 2014-2015 Roots & Wings season. “YOU truly are the ROOTS that give DCCA and the arts in Darke County WINGS!!!” shared Andrea Jordan, DCCA Executive Director. Over 35 years ago, DCCA’s roots were started and a beautiful legacy began. Today, the lives of students, families, patrons and community members are enriched by the arts. Your dedication to DCCA’s mission branches throughout Darke County making this a great place to live.”

In the 2014-2015 season DCCA spread it wings to bring The MCCartney Years, comedian Dan St. Paul and Grammy Award winning zydeco artist Terrence Simien. As well as the innovative percussion ensemble SCRAP ARTS MUSIC, who WOWED the Artists Series audience and junior High Students as part of our Arts in Education outreach. Growing through the arts...every student in Darke County public schools attended an Arts in Education program geared to their specific grade level, and designed to engage, educate and entertain. This seasons presentations did that and MUCH more!!

Because of community support through sponsorships, memberships and grants DCCA is able to keep ticket prices low and continue to introduce new audiences to the wonder of live theater. This seasons Family Theatre Series welcomed the return of The Very Hungry Caterpillar, which sold out Memorial Hall and charmed, young and old alike.

DCCA encourages growth through the arts, with the Summer Residency by The Missoula Children’s Theatre and the annual High School Art Exhibit shown in the Anna Bier Gallery.

The secret is out on DCCA’s fantastic Coffee House Series, numerous performances brought in record attendance for the 2014-2015 series. Patrons enjoyed talented artists and sharing the unique arts experience that this series provides.

From A DCCA Night at the Oscars with Toledo Symphony Orchestra to Wine & Jazz with Daron Bell and DCCA on the Road, DCCA’s 2014-2015 Roots &Wings season delighted returning patrons and entertained new audiences, pleasantly surprised by what DCCA has to offer.

“Thank you all for seeing the value of the arts to our community and helping DCCA to fulfill its mission of enriching lives and growing through the arts,” concluded Jordan.

DCCA’s desire is to offer quality programming, encouraging cultural enrichment in our community, and to do our part to make Darke County, Ohio a great place to live. For more information contact the DCCA office at (937)547-0908 or
