Where Great Arts Support Great Education
The Greater Cincinnati Performing Arts Society mission is to provide financial assistance for those families who wish to attend Catholic elementary schools and provide a values based education for their children. We do this through a series of concerts featuring Grammy nominated and award winning performers. At the same time, we look to provide a benefit to the Greater Cincinnati area by providing high quality entertainment in an upscale theater setting and offering these performances at an affordable price, providing a win for everyone. Our organization has the unique distinction of benefitting the arts as well as education.
2015-2016 CONCERT SEASON
Listen to interview with Pete Ellerhorst on WMKV 89.3/WLHS 89.9 Radio and www.wmkvfm.org about the upcoming season.
Patron, Season and individual concert tickets are available now.
The new season kicks off September 13th with Take 6.
With its roots in gospel, doo wop, and the sophisticated jazz-influenced singing groups of mid-century America (such as the Hi-Los), the a cappella vocal group Take 6 is both a throwback to an earlier, more genteel era of American music and a precursor for a number of black male pop groups of the ’90s, most notably Boyz II Men. Its members include David Thomas, Alvin Chea, Cedric Dent, Mark Kibble, Claude V. McKnight III, and Joey Kibble (who replaced Mervyn Warren). McKnight and Mark Kibble caught the a cappella bug at Alabama’s Oakwood College in the early ’80s, forming a vocal group that solidified into Take 6 when singer/arranger Warren joined in 1985.
