Rhonda Vincent to be featured at Summer concert in Chillicothe

Rhonda Vincent

Rhonda Vincent and The Rage will return to Chillicothe this summer to kick off the Chillicothe Area Arts Council’s 2019-2020 Season. A concert will be at the Gary Dickinson Performing Arts Center on the afternoon of July 7th at 3 o’clock.

Arts Council Administrator Mary Lou VanDeventer calls Rhonda Vincent and The Rage a “crowd favorite”. She says Vincent “does an excellent job” and is “an excellent entertainer.” There were nearly 600 attendees for the Rhonda Vincent and The Rage concert last year.

This year’s concert will also be part of Sliced Bread Days in Chillicothe July 5th through 7th to celebrate Chillicothe being the home of sliced bread. There will be community events the whole weekend, including a carnival at Simpson Park, the sliced bread contest at the Grand River Museum Historical Society Museum, and other activities relating to sliced bread.

One of the original sliced bread machines is on loan from the Smithsonian Museum and VanDeventer hopes the museum in Chillicothe will be able to hold on to the machine at least through Sliced Bread Days, so attendees can see it. A newer machine will be used to slice bread for the bread contest.

Tickets to see Rhonda Vincent and The Rage July 7th cost $25 for adults and $10 for students. Chillicothe Area Arts Council season ticket holders will be admitted for free with their season ticket. Tickets can be reserved by calling the Arts Council Office at 660-646-1173.
