A snap of the fingers confirms that bell clear acoustic quality inside the Ariel-Ann Carson Dater Performing Arts Centre. The Ariel is home to the Ohio Valley Symphony, the only professional orchestra in the southeast Ohio area. This restored 1895 opera house is host to professional and amateur performances and presentations year round with a five concert Ohio Valley Symphony series each year. A variety of performance classes are available as well as yoga, Zumba and ballroom dancing. Lectures, business meetings and more round out the Ariel calendar.
