Published 11:00 pm Friday, August 24, 2012

The Troy Arts Council’s annual Patron’s Reception will be from 5:30 until 7 p.m. Thursday at The Studio on East Walnut Street in downtown Troy.

The public is invited and encouraged to come, said Dr. William Denison, TAC president.

“The Patron’s Reception is an opportunity to purchase patron memberships and also an opportunity to learn more about the Troy Arts Council and its 2012-2013 calendar of events, which is outstanding,” Denison said. “We’ll have refreshments and entertainment by John Jinright on the keyboard and a time of fellowship with friends and neighbors.”

At the reception, the TAC will unveil its calendar of events for the year.

“Beginning in September with Broadway’s ‘Marcy and Zina Show,’ the TAC will offer a variety of entertainment opportunities,” Denison said. “Spencer’s Theater of Illusion is certainly going to attract a large audience. Sheila Jackson’s Christmas Concert is always a big event. The calendar includes a Sinatra Tribute, Alexandre Sevastian, who is a world famous accordionist, the Merling Trio and the Marvelous Wonderettes, a musical performance featuring music from the 1960s and 1970s.”

The calendar features a jam-packed performance season and offers the best ticket in town, Denison said.

Patron memberships include a season ticket or tickets, depending on the patron level.

“A $75 patron membership includes one season ticket,” Denison said.

“A $101 patron membership includes two season tickets and it goes up from there.”

A patron membership is not only admission to a season of wonderful performances, it also supports the various TAC grants to local schools and organizations and the TAC’s scholarship programs.

“The TAC invites everyone who has an interest in the performing arts to attend the Patron’s Reception Thursday night and learn more about our organization and its role in the Troy and Pike County communities,” Denison said.
