Did you get to hear and enjoy any of the amazing groups that performed in town during the 2012 World Choir Games? Well, now you have the opportunity to hear more great singing, as choirs from ten local corporations, and one wild card team, compete in CincySings, an ArtsWave event.
Visionaries + Voices is one of this area’s unique arts organizations, dedicated to showcasing and developing works from artists with a variety of disabilities. New programs are also allowing the artists to teach their talents to children and adults. Krista Gregory, exhibitions director, and Samantha Charek, educational outreach director, join Jane Durrell to talk about the wide-range of programs and events organized by V+V.
The board of the Dayton arts organization Cityfolk has voted to dissolve the group. The unanimous vote comes five months after Cityfolk canceled its 2013-2014 season and the annual summer music festival.
In a release, the board says Cityfolk's assets will be transferred to the University of Dayton. Its records and files are being donated to Wright State's Special Collections and Archives.
Our decision was a difficult one, but the right one," says Cityfolk President Matt Dunn.
The group was founded in 1980 to present ethnic and traditional folk arts.
