Welcome to the Arts Council of South Wood County
Thank you for checking out our web site! This is the place where you can find out all about our upcoming performances.
WE DID IT!!! We pulled off at least ONE performance for 2020-2021, and it was an amazing one. Thank you to Lorrie Morgan and her band and crew for a phenomenal show on May 1! They were wonderful to work with…so polite and appreciative, and happy to be performing again. Those of you who attended in turn showed your excitement for a live performance. The band loved spending time with you! It warmed my heart to see the excitement and brought to mind a quote by Billy Joel: “I think music in itself is healing. It’s an explosive expression of humanity. It’s something we are all touched by. No matter what culture we’re from, everyone loves music.” That was clearly displayed at the performance…
Now we begin to look to October. 2021-2022 season ticket sales will begin on Monday, July 26, followed by individual ticket sales on August 16. Remember that gift certificates issued as “refunds” may be used for any of our season performances, not just the one for which you originally purchased your ticket. Your credit is in your patron account, waiting for you to redeem it.
Here is a list of performances included in our 2021-2022 season lineup. Note that we’ve also added a brand-new performance to the mix, just to make the season even more exciting!
- October 21, 2021 – David Victor Presents the Hits of Boston & Styx
- November 12, 2021 – The Hit Men
- December 9, 2021 – Christmas With The Nelsons
- February 3, 2022 – The Greatest Love of All
- February 24, 2022 – B2wins: Beyond Music

There will likely be some safety precautions that will be in place, and we will share those as we get a little closer to our season. Thank you for complying with our requests so we can keep everyone healthy.
While we only held one performance this season, we will continue the practice of offering our student population a $10 ticket to each performance next season. These tickets must be purchased directly through The Arts Council office, either by phone or in person.

Louis Armstrong once said, “Music is life itself. What would this world be without good music? No matter what kind it is.” I wholeheartedly agree, particularly in times of uncertainty.
See you at the PAC!
