Kevin is presenting "An Evening at Broadway" Dec. 11 at Maumee Indoor Theatre. Tickets for his show are available at http://kevinaludwig03.wix.com/music/shows
 
Chamber strings will feature Kilpatrick on string bass performing Max Bruch's powerful "Kol Nedrei." String bass is rarely featured on the solo stage and you don't want to miss this.
 
Under the direction of Tom Sieberg, students also are performing a strings-only arrangement of "Beethoven's 5th Symphony Mvt.1." This is not your typical simplified arrangement, but Beethoven's actual score is arranged to perform without winds. It is quite a challenge for high school musicians. 
 
Also on the program is music from Narnia "The Lion, The Witch and the Wardrobe," and Sieberg's personal favorite "O Magnum Mysterium" by Morton Lauridson.
 
"I'm most excited to be playing in person with our full string ensemble; we missed a few concert cycles because of COVID, and a lot of members were remote last year," Deng said. "I'm also looking forward to Stephen's solo on Kol Nidrei because the pandemic kept us from playing the piece two years ago."
