Cardinal Chorale here for tour finale

| June 18, 2018

COSHOCTON – The 23rd edition of the Cardinal Chorale will be in Coshocton for the final performance of their six-day, 10-concert summer tour. The concert will be Thursday, June 21, at 7 p.m. in Roscoe United Methodist Church, 475 High Street in Roscoe Village. The doors will open at 6:30 p.m.

Other stops on the tour will include performances in Marion, Lewis Center, Columbus, Lakeside, Fostoria, and New Concord.

The chorale’s 90-minute program will feature selections from their 2016 show, “Seize the Day” and their 2017 show, “Give Us Hope”—music that “will fill the soul and lift the spirit,” as one listener described a Chorale performance.

Organized in the summer of 1995 by its director, Charles R. Snyder, the Cardinal Chorale is a select 48-voice traveling ensemble of high school and college singers. In its 20-year history, the chorale has been invited to sing for a number of professional conferences and has performed on the campuses of Capital University, Muskingum University, Kent State University, Ohio University, and Penn State University. The chorale has also sung for a number of state celebrations including the rededication of the Ohio Statehouse, and the state’s Martin Luther King, Jr. celebration in Columbus. In the summer of 1998, the chorale shared its musical magic on a concert tour of England, France, and Wales.

Local members of the current chorale include Beth Allen, Hallee Anderson, Jonathan Arnold, Hope Asbury, Michael Belt, John Bordenkircher, Michael Border, Annie Bosson, John Brems, Jadyn Cline, Jenna Clum, Jordan Conner, Justin Conner, DJ Esselburn, Elizabeth Ferris, Josie Fornara, Kyla Geer, Ryan Gildow, Everett Hall, Jacob Heading, Sarah Heading, Sarah Holmes, Lauren Johnson, Sarah Kittner, Logan Lawrence, Morgan Lawrence, Colin McConnell, Nathan Moses, Maggie Myers, Harrison Orand, Rowan Roberts, Connor Wheeler, and Quinn Wherley.

There is no admission charge for the concert, but an offering will be received to help cover the Chorale’s tour expenses. More information about the group and its tour is available online at
