BGSU Men’s Chorus in Concert at First UM Church
The Bowling Green State University Men’s Chorus will be in concert at Van Wert’s First United Methodist Church on Monday, March 16 at 7:00 pm. They will be on their annual spring tour March 16-22. Performances include schools, and churches throughout Ohio, Illinois and Michigan and culminates with a performance at the Intercollegiate Men’s Choruses National Seminar in Chicago. They will be sharing a stage with Men’s Choruses and Glee Clubs from Baldwin Wallace, The Ohio State University, Harvard University, and University of Michigan.
The following was released for the press from the BGSU Men’s Chorus:
“Come enjoy a night of music and gaiety by joining the Bowling Green State University Men’s Chorus in concert! Founded in 1971, the BGSU Men’s Chorus is steeped in rich tradition, close brotherhood, and a shared devotion for passionate music-making.
The chorus, under the direction of BGSU Men’s Chorus alum, Dr. Richard L. Schnipke, endeavors to provide an evening of musical excellence, performing such lustrous pieces as Jocelyn Hagen’s “Arrow,” “Glory,” arranged by Dr. Eugene Rogers, Gwyneth Walker’s “The Tree of Peace,” and selected movements from Carl Orff’s Carmina Burana. Along with our regular Spring Tour circuit, the chorus will enjoy the privilege of performing at the National Seminar of Intercollegiate Men’s Choruses (IMC), a concert you surely do not want to miss.
To make this tour possible, a freewill offering will be collected to defray costs. We hope to see you at a performance or two!”
