Sauder Village in Archbold and the Black Swamp Arts Council will co-host a concert by the Toledo Symphony Orchestra on Thursday, March 9, 7:30 p.m., in Founder’s Hall.
“This is the 28th year this highly respected orchestra has presented a community concert in Archbold and it is always an honor for us to welcome such talented musicians to Sauder Village,” said Kim Krieger, Sauder Village PR/media relations.
Resident conductor Sara Jobin will lead the performance. The Grammy-nominated conductor is Chief Conductor of the Center for Contemporary Opera in New York, Interim Resident Conductor of the Toledo Symphony, and Associate Conductor of the Toledo Opera. She has guest conducted the opera companies in Arizona, Pittsburgh, Santa Barbara, Anchorage, Tacoma, and Idaho, where she is music director of the Made In America series. She has also conducted the Dayton Philharmonic, Symphony Silicon Valley, Orchestra of St. Luke’s, and the Bochumer Philharmoniker.
Jobin has led American operas in Szeged, Hungary, and Avignon, France, and brought one in workshop form to Shanghai, China. Her first full-length recording, the hilarious Volpone by John Musto, was nominated for a 2010 Grammy for Best Opera Recording.
The program will include a mix of musical selections, including “Storm from the Pastoral Symphony” by Beethoven, “Great Black Swamp” by Chambers, “Strike Up the Band” by Gershwin, and Binali’s “Earth.”
The 2017 concert is also underwritten by the Farmers & Merchants State Bank and Parkview Physicians Group – Midwest Community Health Associates. All money raised through ticket sales and patron donations underwrites the costs of bringing the Toledo Symphony to the community.
