Three Acts: Fostering Music in Over-the-Rhine

Preston Bell Charles III

Three Acts in Over-the-Rhine is an innovative lecture series designed to expose attendees to stories of the Over-the-Rhine neighborhood. Each event features three, fifteen-minute talks and concludes with a group question and answer period.

The Over-the-Rhine Museum is delighted to announce the next installment in our story-sharing series, “Three Acts in Over-the-Rhine” on Wednesday, December 13th at Memorial Hall (1225 Elm Street). Speakers Preston Charles III, Damon Gray, and Zarleen Watts will talk about their roles in supporting Over-the-Rhine’s culture of music. Charles’s talk will paint a picture of what it took to make his dream of becoming a musical performer and composer a reality. Gray will share the joy he experiences building and maintaining string instruments out of his local shop. Watts will describe her role in continuing the legacy of Schwartz’s Point Jazz Club as she works to ensure it continues to be a destination for jazz performances.
