The Musical Arts Series at Firelands will present the Bowling Green State University Collegiate Chorale in concert at 7:30 p.m. Saturday, March 31, at Firelands Presbyterian Church, 2626 E. Harbor Road, Port Clinton. Director Timothy Cloeter will lead the elite 33-voice choir of the university’s top choral students, mostly upperclassmen and graduate students from the College of Musical Arts. This accomplished choir tours regularly in the United States and Canada.
The concert of sacred and secular music will include selections from William Byrd to Johannes Brahms, from madrigals to spirituals, and from opera chorus to vocal jazz music. As a conductor, Cloeter was chosen as one of only five conductors in the nation to conduct movements of Robert Levin's new completion of Mozart's Mass in C Minor at a Carnegie Hall masterclass. He is currently finishing a doctorate in musical arts at the University of Arizona in Tucson.
Following the concert, audience members will be invited to a reception to meet and welcome the performers. Admission is $15 at the door; students are free. This concert is sponsored by Roth & Bacon, Attorneys at Law and WGTE.
