DARKE COUNTY – Darke County Center for the Arts recognizes Rodney Oda as a sponsor of the upcoming Artists Series performance the Glenn Miller Orchestra, Saturday, Dec. 19 at St. Clair Memorial Hall. The Oda family is honoring the memory of Gene Oda with a sponsorship of the upcoming DCCA Holiday Event.
“What a wonderful gift to the community! Rodney Oda’s generosity is inspiring,” said Andrea Jordan, Executive Director of DCCA. “We appreciate Oda’s long term support of the arts, and eagerness to give back to our community while recognizing his father,” she concluded.
The Glenn Miller Orchestra will bring its legendary sound to Henry St. Clair Memorial Hall with their holiday program, “In the Christmas Mood.” The second presentation of Darke County Center for the Arts 2015-2016 Artists Series, the show will feature the 18-member ensemble playing many of the original Miller arrangements as well as modern selections performed in the Miller style.
“These musicians do much more than recreate the past,” said DCCA Artistic Director Keith Rawlins. “They make music that may take listeners back to another time, but also entertains the socks off us right now!” he concluded. The sold out concert begins at 8 p.m.
Greenville National Bank is also sponsoring this show. 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.
