GREENVILLE – Saturday evening was the last show of the Darke County Center for the Arts (DCCA) 2015-2016 Artist Series. The Toledo Symphony Orchestra performed at Henry St. Clair Memorial Hall.
Guest vocalists Joshua Jeremiah and Bridgette Gan sang music of classic Broadway musicals by Richard Rodgers and Oscar Hammerstein II. The performance featured music from classic favorites including The Sound of Music, Carousel and The King and I.
“From Oklahoma through The Sound of Music, Rodgers and Hammerstein captured the hearts of generations of Americans,” said DCCA Artistic Director Keith Rawlins.
Formed in 1943 as The Friends of Music, the Toledo Symphony Orchestra now in its 22nd season, reaches an audience of more than 260,000 annually, and has built a strong national reputation for its artistic excellence and community programming. The Orchestra has grown from a core group of 22 part-time musicians to a regional orchestra that employs nearly 80 professional musicians.
Sponsors for the show were the Ketrow foundation, Lydia E. Schaurer Memorial Trust Fund, Greenville Federal, Jim and Enid Goubeaux and Harry D. Stephens Memorial, Inc.
