Libera concert canceled; Boychoir to sing

VW independent/submitted information

The Niswonger Performing Arts Center of Northwest Ohio sadly announces the cancellation of a season concert event.

Libera, scheduled for Sunday, April 3, at 3 p.m. was forced to cancel its tour date in the United States. Libra deeply regrets disappointing its fans but, due to circumstances outside of its control, was forced to cancel. Libera has created a video message to convey the group’s regrets (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yprvvaPjFGM&feature=youtu.be).

Understanding the disappointment this message will cause, the Niswonger staff has been working diligently to find a schedule replacement. With a group like Libera, that is a difficult endeavor; however, the Niswonger is pleased to announce The American Boychoir as the featured performers for the rescheduled concert on Sunday, April 10, at 3 p.m.

The American Boychoir has long been recognized as one of the finest musical ensembles in the country and has dazzled audiences with its unique blend of musical sophistication, spirited presentation, and ensemble virtuosity. The Boychoir performs regularly with world-class orchestras, including the New York Philharmonic, The Philadelphia Orchestra, and the Boston Symphony Orchestra, and is often featured with such illustrious conductors as James Levine, Charles Dutoit, and Alan Gilbert.

As an icon of American musical excellence, the Boychoir has been invited to sing for every sitting U.S. president since John F. Kennedy. Touring frequently at home and abroad as preeminent ambassadors, the American Boychoir spreads messages of beauty and hope through outstanding musical achievement (click the following link for a video on the group: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yWOwGQ3VcqU&feature=youtu.be).

Tickets for the American Boychoir are now available from the Box Office from noon to 4 p.m., Monday through Friday, or online at http://npacvw.org. Current Libera ticketholders can simply use their ticket for the American Boychoir (note the date change from April 3 to April 10 at 3 p.m.).

The Niswonger is located at 10700 Ohio 118 on the south edge of Van Wert.
