GREENVILLE — Darke County Center for the Arts will present the Toledo Symphony Orchestra in concert at Henry St. Clair Memorial Hall in Greenville on Saturday, May 27 where the audience will be taken on a musical journey following the route of the “Orient Express.” “This sonic evocation of the golden age of luxury travel promises to be beautiful, interesting, and fun,” said David Warner, artistic director for DCCA. “Our audience will have a great time visiting the European capitals of old through music,” Mr. Warner concluded. The final concert of DCCA’s 2022-2023 Artists Series season, the performance begins at 8 p.m.
Since its formation in 1943, the Toledo Symphony Orchestra has grown from a core group of twenty-two part-time musicians to become a regionally prestigious ensemble employing sixty-five full-time professional musicians, as well as numerous others to meet the needs of an expansive and eclectic repertoire.
