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.

Antsy McClain And The Trailer Park Troubadours – February 27th
Singer, songwriter, humorist and small town philosopher Antsy McClain writes what he knows: The good life.
Staging his live shows from a small, fictitious trailer park called Pine View Heights (patterned after his own childhood surroundings and experiences), McClain is free from an over-abundance of material things and appreciates time with family and friends.
Sharing his mantra of “Enjoy The Ride,” McClain has won friendship and collaboration with some of the most talented musicians in the world. With such a wide circle of mentors like Waylon Jennings, Tommy Smothers, guitar legend Tommy Emmanuel and cowboy poet Baxter Black, it’s no wonder McClain marches to the beat of a different drum. And his influences don’t stop there. His live shows touch upon Country, Rockabilly, Jazz, Swing, and a number of Pop culture references.
