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.
THE ORCHESTRA (Starring Former Members of ELO and ELO II) – May 14th
An evening of the GREATEST HITS of the ELECTRIC LIGHT ORCHESTRA
Former members of ELO and Electric Light Orchestra Part II are regrouped as The Orchestra. A name, acknowledging each band member’s illustrious former membership with the Electric Light Orchestra and/or Electric Light Orchestra Part II but also forging ahead to a future utilizing the spectacular symphonic rock sound for which they are unequalled.
Electric Light Orchestra began when three members of the Birmingham, England band The Move created ELO as a side project in 1970. They envisioned a hybrid rock/orchestral group with a sound that picked up where The Beatles had left off on songs like I Am The Walrus. ELO’s roster changed numerous times over the years, with no fewer than 18 members contributing to the band’s sound.
ELO’s spectacular run of success in the ’70s and ’80s included numerous gold and platinum albums, Top Ten hits such as “Can’t Get It Out of My Head” and “Telephone Line”, the groundbreaking “Spaceship” tour and a secure place as one of the most important bands in the history of rock.
