Music and art will be the stars of the evening on Sunday, Oct. 4, with the Toledo Symphony Orchestra performance and the celebration of the Community Art Project at Tecumseh Center for the Arts. Broadway and show tunes will highlight the symphony’s program that will coincide with the TCA’s Community Art Project. “We’ve planned a relaxing enjoyable event,” commented TCA Director Johanna Walker, “The TSO is a great orchestra. It’s an honor to have the TSO here as we celebrate our local artists.”
The TCA invited area artists to create flower boxes; the finished creations were displayed all summer in businesses throughout Tecumseh. The collection of art is now displayed in the TCA lobby gallery. The public is invited to stop by to view the 40 unique art pieces that will be auctioned at the conclusion of the Toledo Symphony’s performance on Sunday evening. “We are showcasing the talent of our local artists,” Walker stated, “The TCA is overwhelmed by their talent, support and generosity.”
Sunday’s events begin at 6 p.m. with The Toledo Symphony Orchestra.
The program will feature Broadway music and show tunes under the direction of TSO Resident Conductor Chelsea Tipton, II. In his sixth season with the TSO, Tipton has won over audience and critics alike with his vibrant musicality and versatility. As a sought-after guest conductor, Tipton has appeared with major orchestras across the country, including the Symphony Orchestra’s of Chicago, Pittsburgh, Houston, Detroit, Atlanta and with many other great orchestras.
For the TSO’s selection, A Tribute to Ol’ Blue Eyes, special guest Keith Hoyt will join the orchestra singing the songs of Frank Sinatra. In addition to the Sinatra show tunes, TSO’s performance will include favorites such as Moon River, music from Broadway shows Guys & Dolls, Carousel and Old Man River.
