Holiday Evening at Edison State is both a celebration and a commitment and has become The Edison Foundation's most successful scholarship fundraiser. Proceeds from this event provide scholarship opportunities to high school graduates as well as to students who may be returning to Edison State Community College to begin, change or advance their careers. Because of this event, The Edison Foundation has been able to provide over 2 million dollars in scholarship support to the students of Edison State over the past twenty-one years, facilitating their educational pursuits and dreams.
With the generous support of event sponsors, Edison State brings world-class entertainers to our campus to celebrate the winter holiday season. The 22nd Annual Holiday Evening at Edison State will be held on December 4, 2019 and will feature the electrifying trio Simply Three. Simply Three has been captivating audiences worldwide with their high-octane performances since 2010. They continue to receive praise for their ability to impress listeners with a multitude of genres. By reshaping convention through this style of genre-hopping, the trio continues to seek the true essence of classical crossover with original works as well as innovative arrangements that showcase their technical virtuosity and heartfelt musicality. Simply Three has old school training but a new school sound. Their quest to look beyond the scope of possibility has led them to collaborate with some of the world's most creative musicians, in hopes of creating a new, fresh genesis for string playing. With this, the trio is able to merge shows into a unique synergy of thrilling performances and tone-rich sounds not soon to be forgotten.
An additional component to this year's Holiday Evening at Edison State will be two Edison State Music Education Clinics conducted by Simply Three for local junior and high string enthusiasts on Thursday, December 5. These clinics were made possible and are sponsored by the Miami County Foundation and The Piqua Community Foundation and The Edison Foundation.
