Cardinal Chorale to sing tour finale in Coshocton

| June 6, 2019

COSHOCTON – The Cardinal Chorale will be in Coshocton on Thursday, June 20, for the finale of their summer tour. The concert will be at Roscoe United Methodist Church at 7 p.m.  Doors will open at 6:30 p.m.

Although the chorale will have performed 60 different songs on their six-day, nine-concert tour, the repertoire for the Roscoe finale will largely be selected from last summer’s” Dream a World” show, the finale of the Cardinal Chorale Music Workshop at Muskingum University. The 90-minute program will include American folk songs, patriotic selections, music from the musical theatre stage, sacred classics, and spirituals. Several Waring arrangements will salute Waring, Charles R. Snyder’s teacher, dubbed, “The man who taught America how to sing.” It was the sound of Waring’s Pennsylvanians that inspired Snyder, director of the Cardinal Chorale, to organize the chorale in 1995.

The Cardinal Chorale, a select 48-voice traveling ensemble of high school and college singers, has 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. The chorale has sung for state music educators at the OMEA Professional Development Conference five times, and has sung twice for the Ohio Choral Directors Association. ­

Other stops on their summer tour included performances in Marion, Columbus, Toledo, Dayton, and Bolivar.

Coshocton area singers in the 24th edition of the chorale include Zade Adkins, Elizabeth Allen, Hallee Anderson, Jonathan Arnold, Hope Asbury, Michael Belt, Annie Bosson, DJ Esselburn, Kyla Geer, Everett Hall, Jacob Heading, Sarah Heading, Lauren Johnson, Morgan Lawrence, MaryAnn Lozowski, Nathan Moses, Maggie Myers, Gavin Norman, Harrison Orand, and Kailyn Shalosky.

Area staff members include: Matt Downing, Haley Evans, Caroline Heading, Erin Jobes, Ann Leppla, Snyder, Mark Wagner and staff interns: John Bordenkircher, Elizabeth Ferris, Sarah Kittner, and Connor Wheeler.

There is no admission charge for the concert, but an offering will be received to help cover the chorale’s tour expenses.
