The Daviess County Public Schools district has announced the schedule for Arts Alive! This year’s theme is “A Symphony of the Arts” and will spotlight student talents in a variety of visual and performing arts.
All performances and displays will take place at the Owensboro Convention Center and are open free to the public. The schedule is as follows:
2 to 5:30 p.m. Sunday, March 18 – Concert and jazz bands, dance/indoor ensembles and visual arts
5 to 8 p.m. Monday, March 19 – K-12 vocal music showcase and visual arts

The visual arts gallery, featuring almost 600 two- and three-dimensional visual arts products, will be open throughout the event.
Anthony Sparks, district arts coordinator, said, “The event will highlight many of our performing groups as well as a multitude of visual art pieces created by DCPS students this school year. It is a time to celebrate individual and group student achievement in the arts and a time to reflect on the positive impact quality arts education programs have in our schools and community.”
All DCPS schools will be represented at this event. There will be performances by Burns, College View and Daviess County middle school, and Apollo and Daviess County high school bands on Sunday; choirs on Monday; and orchestras on Tuesday.
Sunday will also feature high school jazz bands, indoor marching winds, Winter Guard groups and the DCPS Percussion Ensemble.
Monday’s performance will also include an elementary small group showcase and a district choir of 120 students selected from each of the 12 elementary schools.
Awards will be presented to winners of the Visual Arts Exhibit at the conclusion of the orchestra concert on Tuesday evening.
The annual DCPS arts showcase is open to the public with a special invitation extended to our media partners. “We are excited for our community to see and hear all the great things going on in our district,” Sparks said. “This event really spotlights the incredible talent of our students and the outstanding leadership of our visual and performing arts educators.” For more information, contact Anthony Sparks at
