The Glass City Singers will present their premiere concert Tuesday, April 25, at 7:30 p.m. at Trinity Episcopal Church, 316 Adams St. in Toledo.
The concert will feature contemporary music written by living composers, including selections for choir, cello and piano.
The Glass City Singers is a new ensemble to Toledo and is the first of its kind in northwest Ohio, according to Dr. Brad Pierson, assistant professor and director of choral activities in the UT Music Department. The ensemble is an auditioned group of singers age 16 to 30, and includes high school students, young professionals and college students majoring in everything from music to medicine.
An alternative to the more traditional community chorus, Glass City Singers performs music composed exclusively in the 21st century, Pierson, who directs the group, said.
Pierson will conduct at the concert, which will feature UT pianist Christina Montri and Dr. Brian Snow of Bowling Green State University on cello.
Tickets for the concert are $10 for general admission and $5 for students and seniors.
Tickets will be available at the door, from the UT Center for Performing Arts Box Office, or online here.
