ArtsLink’s 2018-19 Concert Series will continue through April, offering versatile and expressive interpretations of both American music and dance.

Season tickets for the six-concert series are now on sale through ArtsLink, the arts council for Wetzel and Tyler counties.

The highly energetic story of Beauty and the Beast will be presented by the Oglebay Institute Youth Ballet on Sunday, Oct. 28 at the Lincoln Theater. The 3 p.m. matinee performance will be enjoyed by young and old alike as the familiar tale is brought to life through the artistry and timeless beauty of ballet. The show is sponsored by Marble King.

The Christmas season will be ushered in Monday, Dec. 3 with the Mid Ohio Valley Ballet classic presentation of The Nutcracker. This whimsical ballet brings beautiful fantasies, sugar plum dreams, and waltzing snowflakes to the classic American holiday experience. The 7 p.m. show at the Lincoln Theater is sponsored by Marble King.

The series continues with a concert on Thursday, March 14. Charlie Chaplin has been making audiences laugh for over a hundred years now, and you’ll find out why in Funny Bones, hosted by renowned physical comedian Dan Kamin. Dan trained Robert Downey Jr. for his Oscar-nominated performance in Chaplin and created Johnny Depp's comedy moves for Benny and Joon. In Funny Bones he’ll screen a newly restored print of The Pawnshop, Chaplin's 1916 comic masterpiece, then peel the layers of the film to reveal its surprising secrets. The 7:30 p.m. event at the Lincoln Theater is sponsored by Mensore Distributing. The engagement of Dan Kamin is made possible through the West Virginia Special Presenters Initiative Program of Mid Atlantic Arts Foundation with support from the National Endowment for the Arts and the West Virginia Division of Culture and History.

Pianafiddle conclude the series on Tuesday, Apr. 2 at the Gold Derrick Gallery in Sistersville. Is it bluegrass? Is it jazz? Is it classical, old time, ragtime, or blues? If Pianafiddle is performing, the answer is YES! Beginning only with a familiar tune, violinist/fiddler Adam DeGraff and pianist Randy Morris improvise as they go, blending the traditional, the unwritten, and the spontaneous in compelling performances that range literally from Bach to Bluegrass. This 7:30 p.m. performance is sponsored by Logan Hassig.
