Wooster Chorus to Perform in Perrysburg on March 17
March 17, 2014, 7:30 PM - 9:30 PM

Venue: St. Timothy’s Episcopal Church
Location: Perrysburg
Address: 871 E. Boundary St.

Description: The highly acclaimed Wooster Chorus, an ensemble of 50 student musicians from the College of Wooster, will perform at St. Timothy’s Episcopal Church (871 E. Boundary St.), on Monday, March 17, at 7:30 p.m., as part of the group’s 50th annual spring tour.

Directed by Lisa Wong, this concert tour by the Wooster Chorus explores humanity’s insatiable search for love and connection. Profound bonds can be formed through passion, spiritual dimension, familial ties, and an ongoing search to expand the self. One’s pursuit may continue through all facets of life, and can be met with abundance or scarcity.

In this performance, the chorus will sing the thought-provoking texts of Emily Dickinson, E. E. Cummings, Charles D’Orleans, and others as set by Claude Debussy, Jake Runestad, Vincent Persichetti and many more. Expect an evening of exquisite music as the chorus surveys this basic, yet profound, human need.

Wong is in her fifth year on the faculty of the College of Wooster, where she directs the Wooster Chorus and the Wooster Singers, and teaches courses in conducting and music education. In addition to her duties at Wooster, Wong is the assistant director of choruses for the Cleveland Orchestra. She holds a bachelor of science degree in music education from West Chester University, and master of music and doctor of music degrees in choral conducting from Indiana University.

Founded in 1964, the Wooster Chorus consists of students representing all academic areas within the College of Wooster’s liberal arts program. The choir has been praised for its high level of artistry, engaging performances, and enthusiastic singing. Within the past year, the chorus has been invited to perform with the Ashland Symphony, the Canton Symphony, and the Cleveland Orchestra and Cleveland Orchestra Chorus.

There is no admission fee for the performance, but a freewill offering will be taken. Additional information is available by phone (330-263-2048) or e-mail (bbrooks@wooster.edu).
