Findlay church to host Heidelberg performers

FINDLAY – The Concert Choir and the Chamber Singers of Heidelberg University’s school of music will kick off its performance season with a concert at 3 p.m. Sunday at St. Michael the Archangel Catholic Church, 750 Bright Road, Findlay.

Under the direction of Greg Ramsdell, director of choral activities and assistant professor of choral music education, the 51-member vocal ensemble will present “British Invasion,” which includes repertoire reflecting on America’s fascination with many aspects of British culture.

“The theme is a deliberate reference to that time in the mid-’60s when America seemed to be completely enthralled with all things British,” Ramsdell said. “It seems that we are once again in the

midst of just such a cultural fascination.”

Several selections feature solos or accompaniment by students from the choir. Featured soloists include Collin Stump and Kristina Kamm, while organ accompaniment will be provided by sophomore Stephen Smith and senior Melissa Flowers.

The concert is free. A freewill offering will be taken to help offset the choir’s travel expenses.
