The Preble County Art Association (PCAA) presents Arts Night at the Visual Art Center of Preble County. This event is a collaboration between the PCAA and the Richmond Symphony Orchestra (RSO) focused on celebrating art and music in an interactive setting. The evening will feature the opening exhibit of work by artists Chris Shatsby and Terry Vance, live performance by The Wing Walkers and free activities including instrument making, clay and pastel projects and an instrument petting zoo. All activities are free and provided by the PCAA and the RSO with support from West End Bank.
Free Community Concerts
The Richmond Symphony Orchestra (RSO) is proud to be a part of the arts culture of Wayne County offering artistic and educational programming for both students and adults, and encouraging families to come together to appreciate the fine art of symphonic music. This year, in honor of its anniversary season, the RSO is the fortunate recipient of a grant from West End Charitable Foundation that will assist the RSO in making a more significant reach into the community than ever before.
With this grant, the RSO will hold numerous community concerts with performances by small ensembles. Their purpose is two-fold: 1) to educate the community and region about RSO’s programming, and 2) to encourage interaction with the orchestra players. Attendees will also be provided with two free ticket vouchers to attend a subscription concert during the 2016–2017 season.
As the RSO enters its 60th season, it is particularly important time to build and capitalize on existing momentum. Having the opportunity to connect with other communities and build relationships could ultimately propel the RSO into great sustainability.
