WHEN: Sunday, April 29 at 5PM
WHERE: Kulas Musical Arts Building; Gamble Auditorium (96 Front Street, Berea, OH).
TICKETS: Available NOW at www.bw.edu/tickets
*Please join us for a mental health information and advocacy expo before the concert. Seven community organizations will join us to share their stories. This will begin at 4:30 PM in Gamble Lobby before the concert.
The Spring Concert, which will conclude our eleventh season, will celebrate the cultures and stories of the people who shape our community and our world. With this focus in mind, the concert will address themes of mental wellness and the mental health struggles that impact each of our lives in some way. As part of the chorus’ ongoing dedication to cultivating relationships within the Greater Cleveland Community, we have invited several community mental health and wellness organizations to attend this concert as part of an information and advocacy fair that will occur before, throughout, and after the concert.
On Sunday, April 29, concertgoers can expect a program of relevant, powerful, and deeply moving music performed by the 100+ voices of the BW Men’s Chorus. Directed by Frank Bianchi, accompanied by Michelle Massouh Makhlouf, and also featuring the a cappella voices of Mr. Sun’s Echo, the Spring Concert will include varied instrumentation, inspiring soloists, and a closer look into the dynamic stories of the group’s mission and membership.
Tickets are available NOW at www.bw.edu/tickets. Like “BW Men’s Chorus” on Facebook, and please contact email@example.com for more information.
