The SCCA is an all-volunteer outfit. This implies two important things:
1) All of our income goes back into our programs and their support. We have no salary or overhead expenses/
2) We need volunteers, which means people who will do things – oversee activities, support those who oversee activities, bring supplies or provide helping hands on short notice. If you're willing to do this or anything else, at any time, and in any way, send us a note: info [at] sullivanarts.org
Our expanded activities are putting an increasing strain on the small circle who take an active part in our labor-intensive programs.
You don't need expertise in any area, just a willingness to put in a few hours.
Concerts by the Celtic Martins over the past several years have put new life into the Arts Council's music scene.
And it got us thinking: It seems a particular shame that much of the ancestral music of the county – such as the Irish tradition showcased by the Martins – has vanished from current daily life.
We'd like to change that, possibly with an art and theater festival in coming years.
Using the same techniques that our Roving Historical Theater has developed over the last eight years, we'd like to integrate historical skits with contemporary musicians to provide a unique form of "historical entertainment" that will celebrate the traditions of the German, Irish and East European melodies that were the bedrock of the county's home and community entertainment for over a century.
The Celtic Martins have agree to remain the headline act.
