Westerville Symphony Collaborates with Otterbein University Choirs

May 6, 2014

Westerville, OH—The Westerville Symphony at Otterbein University is collaborating with the Otterbein University Choral staff and students for the first time in three years this spring. The two groups will be producing the rarely-produced A Sea Symphony, composed by Ralph Vaughan Williams, on Saturday, May 10 at 8 PM.

The final concert of the Symphony’s 2013-2014 season, A Sea Symphony (Symphony No. 1) combines Westerville’s two finest music groups to perform this very difficult, but awe-inspiring, work. Audience members can look forward to being swept away by this epic nautical masterpiece. Over a dozen Otterbein alumni from the Symphony are joining five Otterbein choirs at their alma mater, in Cowan Hall.

Continuing a long-standing tradition in the Westerville community, the Otterbein University combined choirs will join forces under the direction of Dr. Gayle Walker. Students in the Otterbein Concert Choir, Camerata, Otterbein Singers, Otterbein Women’s Chorale and the Otterbein Vocal Ensemble will lend their voices for the latest great collaboration between these two organizations.

A Sea Symphony will be performed on Saturday, May 10 at 8 PM in the Fritsche Theatre in Cowan Hall, located at 30 S. Grove St., Westerville, Ohio.
