The National Voice of America Museum has announced that Carmon DeLeone and the New Studio Big Bang, with guest artist Mike Reid, will headline a fundraising concert on June 4. DeLeone is the music director for the Cincinnati Ballet and the Middletown [Ohio] Symphony Orchestra, as well as the conductor laureate of the Illinois Philharmonic Orchestra. Reid is a Grammy-winning country music artist.
Tickets for the event are $100 per person, with all proceeds going to fund a new entrance for the museum, renovate the east wing and build restrooms that comply with the Americans with Disabilities Act.
“This concert is among the first fundraising activities we’ll sponsor over the next few years to build our exhibits and make the museum attractive and accessible to everyone,” said Ken Reiser, president of the museum board of directors.
The fundraiser will take place at the VOA Museum in West Chester, Ohio, on June 4 from 6 p.m. to 10 p.m. In addition to the concert, which will start at 7:30 p.m., the fundraiser will feature a reception and offer private tours of the museum. Valet parking will be provided. Dress is summer casual.
