For Immediate Release Thursday, December 2, 2010

Peninsula, Ohio - One of this area’s premier photographers, Tom Jones, has created and released a DVD entitled Cuyahoga Valley In Concert, which features over 800 stunning photos of Cuyahoga Valley National Park (CVNP). In this performance, Tom Jones has digitally recorded the sounds of wind, rain, waterfalls, coyotes, and birds in CVNP and blended them with inspiring music in order to provide a lush background for the presentation’s images. This stimulating combination of both photography and music will transform the beauty and serenity of CVNP into a grand ensemble—a 33,000-acre orchestra in concert.

Join us for an afternoon with Tom Jones as we celebrate the upcoming holiday season. Find out how his passion for our national park inspired this work. Tom will be signing his DVD, posters, prints, and cards on Saturday, December 4, 2010, from noon to 4:00 p.m. at Park Place in Peninsula. DVDs are available to purchase for $19.95 at Park Place, or by downloading an order form from www.cvnpa.org.
