The Terra Choral Society has a full spring season on tap and will begin with an opening rehearsal on Jan. 14 at 6:30 p.m.
The Choral Society’s spring schedule includes a February concert of romantic music with the Firelands Symphony, a concert of American composers, and a concert with the legendary Melissa Manchester.
Registration will begin at 6 p.m. in the Recital Hall (Building D, Room 122). Community registration is $30 for the semester. Senior and high school discounts apply.
The Terra Choral Society (TCS) originated as a small campus chorus in 2000 with 20 community members and grew along with the college’s music program to officially become a registered ensemble of the college two years later. Membership has grown to more than 120 student and community singers from across five counties in Northwest Ohio.
TCS is conducted by Michael Shirtz and collaborates annually in performances with regional arts organizations and schools. Select ensembles from the Choral Society members include the Terra Men’s Chorus, Chamber Singers and the jazz-contemporary group, State of the Art.
The chorus has performed with such artists as Joyce Carolyn, C. Andrew Blosser, Elizabeth Von Trapp and Jane Eaglen, and has presented masterworks by Faure, Brahms, Mozart and Handel as well as tribute concerts to Aaron Copeland, Leonard Bernstein, the stage and screen and America’s veterans.
In May 2012, TCS performed at the Kennedy Center in Washington, D.C. as part of the nation’s Memorial Day Choral Festival and will be returning again this May.
The mission of TCS is to promote cultural enrichment through choral music, with educational and performance opportunities for college students and community singers.
