Music Director Don Ervin

Don Ervin

Don has served as the director of music at the Center for three years. His rich performance background begins with a degree from Otterbein which launched a career in theatre and music that took him across the country.

Don often appears in Columbus theaters in character roles or singing Broadway tunes, and produces his own play every few years at the holiday season here at the Center.

Artists in Residence Lisa Ferraro and Erika Luckett

Beginning in April of 2016. Fire and honey. Lightning and gold. Fusing earthiness with the transcendent, Lisa Ferraro and Erika Luckett give birth to music born of the earth and destined for the heavens. Never mind that  their combined voices blend so seamlessly we forget there are two of them or the multi-faceted guitar playing is so versatile that one instrument becomes a funk band or a trio of flamenco playing gypsies.  These two extraordinarily talented artists are far more than the sum of their parts and the music they create offers a feast of Sonic Nourishment.  Visit their website at http://www.lisaanderika.com.
