The Zanesville Concert Association hosted the "Temptation of the Muses" at the Secrest Auditorium earlier today. The event was two years in the making and featured contemporary dance and classical music performances. The Zanesville Concert Association is a non-profit organization that has been bringing "world class" performances to Zanesville for 74 years.
"Temptation of the Muses is about is really two events in the same concert. Normally with the dance group, we have recorded music. We have live musicians and it's a group that we've had here before as just a performance.The Ahn Trio, three sisters that are piano, violin and cello that are world famous," said Jim McLaughlin, board member of the Zanesville Concert Association.
Members enjoyed entertainment by 12 different musicians and performers from all over the world. Zanesville is the first stop for "The Temptation of the Muses" performers on their three state tour which includes Arkansas and California. Some of the concert associations upcoming events include Vince Gill, performers from Hungary, and a symphony from Israel.
"You folks that are missing it today, I'm sorry, we had a ball."
