The Fund for the Arts is thrilled to announce that on January 29th singer/song writer and native Kentuckian Ben Sollee will be appearing on stage at the Brown Theatre as part of the 2013 Arts Showcase and Campaign Kick-Off.
The annual showcase is free to the public and has become a time honored tradition in Louisville.
Along with Mr. Sollee, there will be performances from the Kentucky Opera, Actors Theatre, the Louisville Orchestra, Stage One Family Theatre, and more.
"It's a project of passion," said Sollee. "A chat and a short piece sounds like a great way to spend a January afternoon."
Sollee will also travel to several area schools to present his program On Playing a Wooden Box, through a grant made possible by support from the Fund for the Arts and Fund for the Arts Board President Dave Calif.
The Arts Showcase and Campaign Kick-Off will take place at the Brown Theatre on January 29th from 12:00PM to 1:00PM and include a free box lunch.
