First Friday Concert & Artist Series :::

First Friday of Each Month*

Free Concert @ Noon

JANUARY 3 | Jimmy Rogers — It’s as traditional as greens and black-eyed peas to have this local favorite kicking off our New Year! Welcome the new season with Jimmy and his high-energy combination of honky-tonk classics and originals.

FEBRUARY 7 | Mike Hemmelgarn — Comedian and Ventriloquist: This cast of crazy characters returns to First Fridays and are bringing new friends. Join Mike and his unpredictable cast of characters for a show full of fun, magic, and amazing feats of skill!

MARCH 6 | Sunflower Let the soothing sounds of the Native American Flute sweep over you at the hands of this internationally known and award winning musician.  If you get so calm you fall asleep, she will consider it a compliment!







OCTOBER 2 | Clark Jones Trio  — Celtic music is not just for St. Patrick’s Day!  Join Jude Jones on fiddle, Nancy Clark on harp and Frank Clark on boudrain as we enjoy a “wee bit o’ spring” as the days get shorter and the night get longer!

NOVEMBER 6 | Janice Codispoti — This popular singer and actress can be found performing in musical hotspots all over SW Ohio.  This month Janice will entertain us with some of her favorite Broadway show tunes.  A sing-a-long might break out so do some vocal warm-ups in the car before you arrive!

DECEMBER 4 | Harps of Grace  — We sense the beginning of a tradition here and we couldn’t be happier!  Capture a moment of peaceful reflection to prepare yourself for all those holiday events by listening to a sanctuary full of harps!  Make this your official start to the Christmas season.
