The Concert Choir of Heidelberg University's school of music is to perform its second concert of the season at 3 p.m. Sunday at the Toledo Museum of Art.
Under Greg Ramsdell's direction, the concert is themed around "Night at the Museum."
The 36-member vocal ensemble is to perform a repertoire that brings to mind a series of art galleries, organized by genre or time period. Selections represent landscapes, people, still lifes and situations.
Highlighting the program is to be "In My Dreams," a Paul Mealor composition that portrays a soldier singing to his wife from thousands of miles away. Freshman Casey Jones, a tenor, is the featured soloist.
Other selections include "The King of Love My Shepherd Is," an Irish folk song featuring a solo by senior Jaime Furda, as well as an arrangement of the American folk classic, "Shenandoah."
The program also includes the Christmas spiritual "Go Where I Send Thee" and "The Moon is Distant from the Sea," taken from a poem by Emily Dickinson.
Since its inception in 1938, the concert choir is open to all Heidelberg students regardless of major. The group performs more than 15 concerts each year, including a domestic tour and a performance of Handel's "Messiah" as part of the school's Christmas concert at The Ritz Theatre.
The concert is free. A freewill offering will be taken to help offset the choir's travel expenses.
