The Cincinnati Pops Orchestra will not be returning to the Batesville Music and Arts Festival in June 2014.

The Mayor’s Committee for the Performing Arts decided to nix the headliner due to budget constraints. The committee is currently searching for another headliner group.

The Music and Arts Festival is scheduled for June 18-20, and will continue to offer the Rural Alliance for the Arts Community Art Show and the Texaco Country Showdown, which is presented by Jim True Ford in Brookville and WRBI.

Individuals or organizations interested in offering a financial contribution to the annual arts show can mail checks to the Mayor’s Committee for the Performing Arts to Fifth Third Bank, c/o co-chair Jim Sturges, P.O. Box 30, Batesville, IN 47006.

Additional inquires can be sent to co-chair George Brinkmoeller, 55 Crosstie Lane, Batesville.

Committee members also include Ron Green, Bob Fitzpatrick, Joan Kuhlman, Lori Feldbauer, John Irrgang, Sarah Lamping, Andrea Wade and Debbie Blank.
