Join whateverandeveramen for “Songs of Fatherhood,” a concert celebrating dad, Sunday, June 17, at Trinity Episcopal Church, 316 Adams St. in Toledo.

Dr. Brad Pierson, UT assistant professor of music and director of choral activities, will conduct the 3 p.m. concert.

Founded in 2014, whateverandeveramen performs regular events in Toledo, Seattle and Las Vegas. Singers for the concert will include area students and professionals.

The concert will feature “A Father” by Sylvania-based composer Kevin Foster, who also will sing and play piano at the event.

The central piece of the concert will be “Songs of Fatherhood,” a five-song-cycle composed by David V. Montoya, commissioned and premiered by whateverandeveramen in 2014.

In lieu of traditional concert programs, guests will be given an 11×17 poster featuring artwork created specifically to pair with the music. Children will be provided crayons, making this a family-friendly event, according to Pierson.

Tickets are $10 for general admission and are available at songsoffatherhood.brownpapertickets.com. Admission is free for children 12 and younger.
