GREENVILLE — Darke County Center for the Arts will present Toledo Symphony Orchestra at Henry St. Clair Memorial Hall in Greenville on Saturday, April 29; the concert begins at 8 p.m.
The program entitled “An Evening of George Gershwin” will feature Michael Chertock performing Gershwin’s magnificent music on the piano.
“Toledo Symphony is made up of excellent musicians who love to play; this concert showcases their joy in performance as well as their diverse musical skills,” said DCCA Artistic Director Keith Rawlins.
Formed in 1943, the Toledo Symphony Orchestra reaches more than 260,000 individuals annually through their performances and education programs, having grown from a core group of 22 part-time musicians to now include 65 professionals who consider TSO their primary employer.
