The Elville Center for the Creative Arts is proud to sponsor The Columbia Orchestra’s “Young People’s Concert”, scheduled for Saturday, February 20th at 10:30 a.m. and 1:00 p.m. at The Jim Rouse Theatre for the Performing Arts in Columbia.

From The Columbia Orchestra’s website — “Join The Columbia Orchestra for a “High Seas Adventure” with musical tales of sea-faring pirates and Sinbad the Sailor!  Narrator Greg Jukes and The Columbia Orchestra’s friends from Dance Connections join the Orchestra for Scheherezade, Pirates of the Caribbean, and more!  Try your hand at playing instruments at the Musical Instrument Petting Zoo, sponsored by Music & Arts.”

The purpose of The Elville Center for the Creative Arts is to improve the quality of life of children of all ages by providing them the opportunity to learn music theory and application, experience cultural events related to the musical and creative arts, and to use music and the promotion of music-related activities to transcend social and economic divisions.

The Elville Center partners with local and regional businesses, schools and private donors to provide musical instruments, rentals, music lessons and participation in music-related activities for children of all ages.

The Elville Center is actively seeking monetary pledges to support our endeavors, as well as donations of used instruments of any kind.  Donations may be tax-deductible (please consult with your tax advisor).
