Established in 1976, the Jericho Arts Council is an all-volunteer, not-for-profit, arts organization. It is based in the Town Hall Theatre in Bainbridge, a century-old building that houses one of the few remaining proscenium theaters in the area, lovingly restored to its original elegance.
Our season runs from September to May each year, and our Town Hall Opry series brings in the very best in bluegrass music. We also present other musical genres in diverse styles, and live theater performances. This season offerings range from country rock to doo-wop.
In addition to the musical and theater performances, we are also fortunate to have an outstanding gallery space adjacent to the theater. Our gallery committee presents One-Night-Only art shows in conjunction with performances, as well as a Holiday Craft Show, a Fine Art show, and Student Art shows.
How to join: To quote William Bennett, former U.S. Secretary of Education, “The arts are an essential element of education, just like reading, writing, and arithmetic…music, dance, painting, and theater are all keys that unlock profound human understanding and accomplishment.”
As funding cuts slash arts programming in our schools, we hope you will join us in continuing vital arts programming in our community.
