      Summer's Sizzling Salute to the Arts

      July 18-28, 2012 will be the 28th season for this world-class music and arts festival featuring the Lancaster Festival Orchestra, conducted by Festival Artistic Director, Gary Sheldon.

      Opening Night features renowned pianist, Misha Dichter, in concert with the Orchestra. Other highlights include Saturday Pops Concerts with swing band Big Bad Voodoo Daddy, July 21 and country/pop music star LeAnn Rimes, July 28.

      Indoor and outdoor venues are used to present 70 artists and events during these ten days, most with free admission. Churches, parks, fairgrounds, city streets, campus venues, historic buildings and the local mall are just some of the locations where the arts are presented to the community.

      Gary Sheldon and the Lancaster Festival Orchestra, winners of the American Prize for Conducting and Orchestral Performance (professional orchestra division) are celebrating their 25th Anniversary this summer. The Lancaster Festival was the recipient of the 2011 Ohio Governor's Award for the Arts in Community Development and Participation.

      Historic Lancaster, located approximately 30 miles southeast of Columbus, is the bridge between the dynamic, urban activity of Columbus, and the natural wonders and beauties of southern Ohio. Lancaster has been recognized as one of the nation's best "small arts towns" because of its active art community and the highly successful Festival.

      Cost: 5.00 to 75.00
