Choristers to sparkle in season finale

Following the Windsor Symphony Orchestra and Chorus’s poignant performances of Brahms’ German Requiem in March, the chorus led by UWindsor professor Bruce J.G. Kotowich is putting the finishing polish on its final stand-alone concert of this season accompanied by collaborative pianist Michael Oddy.

Entitled “Glimmers,” the concert is Friday, May 31, at 7:30 p.m. at the Capitol Theatre and promises choral works celebrating life, giving praise, and offering a raucous good time.

“The pieces selected for our spring concert invoke peace, joy, happiness, and a sense of well-being,” says chorus member Pamela Cole. “In my world when music influences me, I call it a glimmer — the exact opposite of a trigger. Glimmers connect us directly with source energy.”

Admission to for Friday’s concert is $20, with a student rate of $10. Find program details and buy tickets on the event website.

In addition to being led by Dr. Kotowich, the 50+ voice chorus has many ties to the University of Windsor. Among its members are professors Antonio Rossini and Jeremy Worth, staffers Kristen Siapas and Susan McKee, many alumni, and a few current students.

“We have been approached by composers to perform their new works, and the Symphony Chorus is reviewing invitations to travel to perform at summer choral festivals nationally and internationally,” Kotowich says. “Robert Franz and I are also planning repertoire for the up-coming seasons. This is an exciting period of growth for us, and we continue to welcome new members.”
