Celebration concert features men’s chorus, summer tour choir alumni

The Bowling Green State University Alumni Men’s Chorus and members of seven Summer Tour choirs will come back to campus for an alumni celebration concert on June 27. The event is at 3 p.m. in Kobacker Hall of the Moore Musical Arts Center.

Under the direction of BGSU Professor Emeritus Richard Mathey, the Men’s Chorus will perform a variety of audience favorites while the Summer Tour Choir will perform selections used on their national tours.

“The alumni returning to sing in the two choirs come to the event with great anticipation,” explained Mathey. “They get to visit with college friends and at the same time prepare a concert of music, music geared for audience members who want to sit back and enjoy a Sunday afternoon of quality singing.”

“The greatest part of the concert will be the 100-plus alumni that will make up the singers,” said Shaun Moorman, who is in charge of the Men’s Chorus Alumni Society. “Many of them are choral directors throughout the State of Ohio and other places in the United States and also professional opera singers and working musicians throughout the country.”

General admission tickets are $10 each and can be purchased at the Kobacker Hall Box Office from 1-5 p.m. on June 26 and from noon-3 p.m. on June 27. The BGSU Men’s Chorus Alumni Society provides assistance and support to the Men’s Chorus.
