Join the Ariel Children’s Chorus for its fall concert, Giving Thanks, on Sunday, November 29th at 2:00 pm in the Ariel Theatre’s 3rd floor Chamber Theatre.

You’ll get to sing along with them on traditional hymns like Come Ye Thankful People Come and We Gather Together. Admission is free and open to the public.
As a prelude to the Christmas season, the ACC will offer Ruth Schram’s beautiful Christmas Grace, the haunting Walking in the Air from the movie THE SNOWMAN, and the hilarious Text Me Merry Christmas! The audience is invited to join the ACC on the chorus of the finale, Oye, a bouncy, highly rhythmic tune of celebration, complete with percussion! We look forward to seeing you.
The Ariel Children’s Chorus is under the direction of Judith Cavendish and meets Thursdays, from 4:00 – 5:00 pm in the Ariel Chamber Theatre located on the 3rd floor of the Ariel-Ann Carson Dater Performing Arts Centre complex.

Ohio Valley Symphony concert goers are in for a treat with the October 31 Halloween concert titled Tricks & Treats. It’s no trick, this year there is a new start time of 7:30 pm for all OVS concerts. Conducted by Maestro Ray Fowler, the concert features mayhem, thrills and chills, movie magic and wild rides all at the historic Ariel Theatre in downtown Gallipolis, Ohio. The audience is invited to come in costume, the orchestra will be!
The Halloween-centric concert starts off with a prank - a package of tunes from Verdi’s opera thriller A Masked Ball bundled up by Johann Strauss. Magic is invoked in the Sorcerer’s Apprentice by a lazy worker who wreaks havoc by dabbling in things over his head. Millions of children have learned this music via the movie “Fantasia” (the original version as well as the more recent one in 2000).
The OVS will be delving into the world of film with music from the movies Pirate of the Caribbean and Poltergeist. TV music will be represented as well with the sword and sorcery music from Wizards and Warriors and Rossini’s Overture to William Tell (perhaps more familiarly known to modern audiences as the music for “The Lone Ranger”).
There are plenty of thrills in Khatchaturian’s music as two lovers escape from their Roman captors in Adagio from Spartacus and the wildly frenetic Sabre Dance both from the ballet “Gayane.” In Wagner’s The Ride of the Valkyries, 9 demi-goddesses mounted on winged steeds gather upon a mountaintop after a great battle.
The OVS has a mission of bringing great music played by great artists to the Ohio Valley – and making orchestral music easy to love. To get a unique perspective on making music, the public is welcome to attend OVS rehearsals for free at 7-10 p.m. Friday, Sept. 11, and 1-4 p.m. Saturday, Sept. 12. Open rehearsals are a great way for young and old alike to become more familiar with symphonic music, and they offer a behind-the-scenes glimpse of what goes into preparing an orchestral performance.
Join Steven Huang, Director of Orchestras at Ohio University and OVS program annotator for a pre concert chat to hear more about the music and the musicians. Held in the third-floor Ariel Chamber Theatre, the pre concert talks are free, interactive and informal and begin at 6:45 p.m. Join us for a post concert reception to meet the musicians and have some treats.
Tickets for The Ohio Valley Symphony's concerts are $24 for adults, $22 seniors and $12 for students. The price includes the pre-concert chat, the concert and the reception immediately following. Tickets are available on the website at arieltheatre.org or ohiovalleysymphony.org or at the box office. Funding for The Ohio Valley Symphony is provided in part by the Ann Carson Dater Endowment.
