Performing Arts Enrichment Event – Guest Artist Ryan Van Scoyk

The Pioneer Center is pleased to announce our first Performing Arts Enrichment Event, featuring saxophonist and educator Ryan Van Scoyk. The goal of the Performing Arts Enrichment program is to provide a broadening musical and cultural experience for our students. We strive to create opportunities for our individuals to learn about and listen to instruments that they might not otherwise have an opportunity to see live.

The event, orchestrated by Pioneer Center Music Therapist Cami Dubler, will be held on Thursday, October 2, 2014, at the Pioneer Center (11268 Co. Rd. 550, Chillicothe, OH).

Ryan will start the day by conducting an educational presentation/demonstration of Woodwind Instruments (Saxophones, clarinet, and flute) for students of the Pioneer Center. Later that day, at 1:00 p.m., Ryan will be performing a concert in the gymnasium. The concert is open to all individuals served by the Pioneer Center as well as their families.

If you are interested in attending the performance, please RSVP by September 26 by contacting Patrick McFadden at or by calling 740-773-8044.
