The Board of Directors of the Grundy County Friends of the Arts is pleased and excited to announce their plans for the 47th Season and have high hopes that the variety included will be of special interest to you.


Starting off the season on Thursday, September 13th, 7:00 PM at the Ketcham Community Center, will be “Bummer The Drummer & The Kansas City Streetband”. This 7-piece rock-n-roll, blues, and jazz horn band brings to the stage a very family-friendly dynamic, interactive, and energetic show. Bummer and the Streetband play “in the pocket, grooves, hard-driving blues shuffles, danceable upbeat funk, and some great ballads. A program, sponsored by Trenton Rotary, will be offered at Trenton High School earlier in the day.
Saturday, October 6th, 7:00 PM at the First Baptist Church, will find us enjoying “A Joyful Noise Community Choir”. This 20-voice ensemble was formed in 1993. They perform a well-rounded variety of gospel music from the traditional, contemporary, and African-American spiritual vein.
The annual Trenton High School Vesper Service will be held on Sunday, December 2nd, 4:00 PM at the First Baptist Church. This program is a long-standing tradition presented by the Trenton High School Vocal Music Department, under the direction of Matt Remus.
On Saturday, December 8th, 3:00 PM at the First Baptist Church, the Grand River Valley Choir & Orchestra will perform. This combined group comprised of professional and non-professional musicians from the area will present selections appropriate to the Holiday Season. George Brundage is the musical conductor.
Grundy County Friends of the Arts and the Friends of the Library are presenting a program on Friday, February 8th, 2013, 7:00 PM in the Hoover Theater. With the goal of enhancing cultural awareness, “Preston Tone-Pah-Hote “shares his knowledge of Native American traditions in a number of formats. He is a multi-talented Kiowa storyteller, orator, and traditional dancer. A school program, sponsored by the Trenton Rotary Club, is scheduled for earlier in the day.
On Sunday, March 3rd, 3:00 PM at Wesley United Methodist Church, “Roadkill” will perform for our enjoyment. This clarinet quintet has entertained audiences in several mid-western states, mixing fine classical playing with the sounds of ragtime, jazz, and swing. Their motto is: “If we don’t get it right the first time, we’ll back up and run over it again”!! This might tell you that there is some humor mixed in also with their programs!
The final program scheduled for the 47th Season is “Young Country” on Friday, April 12th, 7:00 PM at the North 65 Center. Back by popular demand, this local band with a big following will play classic country, bluegrass, gospel, and old time rock-n-roll. You will want to bring your dancing shoes for this one.
There will be no season tickets this year. Tickets will be sold at the door for each program where there is a charge. The price will be $10 for adults. NCMC students with proper ID will be admitted free; students (ages 12-18) will be admitted for half-price; students/children (age 11 and under) will be admitted free when accompanied by an adult, and special needs groups will pay $5.00 each.
For each performance, the venue doors will open one hour prior to performance.
