SHINE THE SPOTLIGHT ON YOUR BUSINESS
ADVERTISE IN OUR BRAVO PROGRAM BOOKLET
The Ogle Center’s season program booklet, Bravo, is an effective way of reaching new customers in Southern Indiana and Metro Louisville. Our performances offer a relaxed setting for your marketing message to reach an affluent and diverse audience. It’s a publication that gets read and retained, picked up and passed around, reaching a key audience of buyers and decision makers from across the region. You’ll reach your market and you’ll also be supporting the arts in your community. Let us make our audience your customer.
On average, 30,000 people attend events at the Ogle Center annually.
The Ogle Center presents more than 100 professional performances and community events annually. In addition to the many professional shows we present each season, our patrons also enjoy performances by students and faculty of the IU Southeast Music and Theatre Departments, the Louisville Orchestra, our Children & Family Series, university events, and community events and rentals.
Our signature The Ogle Center Presents Series has included such well-known artists as Frankie Avalon, Blood Sweat & Tears, Capitol Steps, Celtic Tenors, Chinese Golden Dragon Acrobats, Dallas Brass, Tommy Dorsey Orchestra, The Drifters, Lee Greenwood, Janis Ian, Indianapolis Symphony Orchestra, The King’s Singers, The Kingston Trio, Allison Kraus and Union Station, Rich Little, Chuck Mangione, Kathy Mattea, Nitty Gritty Dirt Band, Oak Ridge Boys, The Platters, Riders In The Sky, Rockapella, Sha Na Na, Ricky Skaggs, Marty Stuart, B.J. Thomas, Ricky Van Shelton, The Vienna Boys Choir, and George Winston. Our À la Carte Add-On performances feature a mix of acts that are slightly off the beaten path, up-and-coming performers, local artists, or acts we consider to be real “finds” that deserve an audience.
Our Children & Family Series delivers arts and educational performances to area public, private, and homeschool children and families at no cost, enriching an under-served population.
In partnership with the university, we present culturally, historically, and educationally significant events to the general public free of charge. Such recent events and speakers have included: White House Press Secretary, Dana Perino; democratic political strategist, Donna Brazil; co-founder of Ben & Jerry’s Ice Cream, Jerry Greenfield; Oakland A’s general manager, Billy Beane; award-winning journalist, Candy Crowley; civil rights advocate, Brian Sims, and Holocaust survivor, Eva Kor.
Part of the goal of the Ogle Center has been to partner with and showcase local artists and arts and cultural organizations. The Louisville Orchestra performs four Ogle Neighborhood Concerts each year in addition to performing on our Children & Family Series. Other local arts organizations with whom we've partnered include Stage One Family Theatre, Kentucky Shakespeare, Floyd County Youth Symphony, and Blue Apple Players. These partnerships have made for an unprecedented reinvestment into our community.
Our Bravo program is hand-delivered to every audience member attending Ogle Center Presents Series performances, Louisville Orchestra Ogle Neighborhood concerts, IU Southeast Orchestra concerts, IU Southeast Concert Band concerts, IU Southeast Concert Choir & Community Concerts, and Commonwealth Brass Band concerts.
In addition to providing each audience member with a printed copy, our Bravo program booklet is also published online and shared on Facebook and Twitter.

ADVERTISE ON OUR VIDEO BOARD
Last season, the Ogle Center’s lobby and ticket office underwent renovations to better serve our patrons. Among the improvements to the lobby was the addition of a 24-hour video board. This board displays upcoming Ogle Center events and other announcements.
The board is located next to the entrance of the Richard K. Stem Concert Hall, which is the home to all of The Ogle Center Presents and Nashville Nights series performances, the IU Southeast Concert Band, Orchestra, Concert Choir & Community Chorus, and Commonwealth Brass Band. Additionally, the Louisville Orchestra makes this their southern Indiana home, and the university presents guest speaker events in the Ogle Center such as Holocaust survivor Eva Kor, which brought more than 1,000 people to the Ogle Center. Annually,more than 35,000 people walk through the doors of the Ogle Center.
Since the board runs continuously, not only do concert audiences view the board, but hundreds view it on a daily basis during the course of normal foot traffic in the Ogle Center lobby. Our walk-through traffic includes students, professors, parents, prospective students, university administrators, and visitors to the new and historically significant Wonderland Way Art Collection that is now permanently on display in the Ogle Center lobby.
Ads are available as either still images or video (with audio). Ads will be displayed in a continuous rotation of images and video. Images can appear in durations of either 8 or 10 seconds. Video clips can appear in durations of either 10 or 15 seconds. Ads will appear a minimum of 20 times per hour. Video board runs continuously and is viewable during normal operating hours of the Ogle Center, 8:00 a.m. to 11:00 p.m., Monday through Saturday, and on Sundays when there are events in the Ogle Center.
