Description: Former Perrysburg resident Todd Carrico will return to St. Paul’s Lutheran Church in downtown Toledo to help celebrate the 50th anniversary of the church’s Reuter pipe organ with a recital Sunday, October 20th at 3:00 P.M. in the church sanctuary 428 No. Erie St. The program is open to the public and will include works by Bach, Buxtehude, Mozart, Fauré, Mulet, Vivaldi and others. The afternoon will also feature performances by Rossford native Katherine Calcamuggio and Perrysburg native Kathryn Zajac Albertson. Both women sang with Mr. Carrico throughout their youth and have gone on to professional vocal performance careers.

Mr. Carrico served as Director of Music and Director for the Cantate Domino Choir School at St. Paul’s for over 17 years. He is currently the Director of Music Ministry at Faith Lutheran Church in Glen Ellyn, IL. He is accompanist and assistant conductor for the Lutheran Youth Choir of North America where he also serves as a member of the board.

Ms. Calcamuggio is currently pursuing her doctorate at the University of Michigan. She holds degrees from Northwestern University and Bowling Green State University. In the past three seasons, Calcamuggio has been featured in important role and company debuts across the United States eliciting kudos for her “soaring, rich voice” (the Miami Herald), her “polished musical and dramatic characterizations” (Kurt Weill Newsletter) and her “fine coloratura technique” (Philadelphia Inquirer). In addition to the performance at St. Paul’s, Calcamuggio will return with the Toledo Symphony in April as the Mezzo-Soprano soloist for Beethoven’s Ninth Symphony. As a winner of the coveted concerto competition at the University of Michigan, in the fall, she makes her Hill Auditorium debut this season with the University of Michigan orchestra singing John Corigliano’s Mr. Tambourine Man.

Kathryn Zajac Albertson has a Masters and a Bachelors of Music degree in vocal performance from the University of Cincinnati’s nationally renowned College Conservatory of Music. She has performed in various main stage operas at the Conservatory of Music and with the Cincinnati Opera as part of the Young Artists Program. Other venues include performances with Songfest at Pepperdine, Rising Star in Indiana, Opera Festival in Lucca, Italy and musical theater productions with Jersey Productions of Kentucky and the Showboat Majestic in Cincinnati. Recently she performed in the Midwest premiere of American composer Libby Larsen’s Stone Soup. Currently Zajac Albertson is the admissions officer at Cincinnati Conservatory of Music and continues to sing in the Cincinnati area.
