>Eileen and Steve Litchfield, Julie and Thomas H. Graber II, and Rodney Oda have donated funds to co-sponsor Darke County Center for the Art’s 2010-2011 Coffee House Series. According to Artistic Director Keith Rawlins, “DCCA is grateful for the generous support for the arts that these individuals have given for many years; we greatly appreciate their sponsorship which enables us to continue this great series of performances, taking artists throughout the community.”
The Coffee House Series includes five programs presented at various venues. The 2010/2011 season featured Americana duo Garcia and Scott at Montage in Greenville, 12-string guitarist Neil Jacobs at the Union City Arts Depot, Poet and Author Allan Wolf at Sweet One O One, and blues guitarist Austin Walkin’ Cane at The Bistro Off Broadway.
French Cabaret singer Claudia Hommel will close out the series this year with a beautiful performance at Michael Anthony’s At the Inn in Versailles on Thursday, April 28, 7:00 pm. Born in Paris, now living in Chicago, Claudia is a theatrical singer with a gift for transporting her audience to the ‘City of Lights.’
