The Denison Arts Council will present Shelley McBride and The River on January 31 to kick off a series of “Live at the Rialto”. McBride was chosen because of his talent and strong musical ties to the area. He is bringing top notch entertainers with him, and the show is full of surprises.
Shelley McBride has planned a lineup of musicians he has played with through the years, and three different sets are planned. A musical adventure of classic rock, R&B, jazz, country, folk, and a Bluebird Café type acoustic set will be sure to please true music lovers.
Free admission to this inaugural Arts Council series is made possible by Ramey Chevrolet, RadioVision, DenisonLive, and the Denison Arts Council. These free tickets may be obtained from the sponsors and at the Rialto.
The next show in the Denison Arts Council series will be on February 14. Dinner and a Movie will feature Amelie, an international co-production and award winning film. Tickets are $25 per person and will feature a menu of angus roast beef w/burgundy brown gravy complimented by a specialty green salad, scallop potatoes, green bean casserole, strawberries Romanoff, croissants, and tea. Seating is limited, and tickets must be purchased in advance. The French movie may be attended for only $5 per person and begins at 8 p.m.
Jars of Clay will be the March presentation of the Denison Arts Council. The show was originally scheduled in December but was rescheduled due to the ice storm. Originally planned to promote their new album “Inland Christmas”, the show is now a celebration of their 20 years in the music business as contemporary Christian recording artists. Tickets are still available and are $25, and seating is reserved.
