A Special Musical Collage in Bexley on February 8

Some of my favorite artists will be appearing on a Musical Collage at Bexley United Methodist Church, 2567 E. Broad St., Sunday February 8 at 3 PM. What's so special? The concert will benefit cancer treatment at the Cleveland Clinic. The driving force here is mezzo-soprano Katherine Rohrer. Many will remember Katherine's smoldering Carmen in last fall's Twisted at the Ohio Theater. She is a sumptuous mezzo-soprano, currently on the music faculty at OSU. Katherine continues a full-scale performing career, and a little bit of cancer isn't getting in her way. Joining Katherine are Robert Kerr, Robin Rice, Ryan Behan, Ed Bak, John Schlabach, Andrew Boylen, Debra Rentz, Katherine Osborne and Andrew Blosser. More information from 614-237-2781. Tickets at the door for a $15 minimum donation. It's a fundraiser boys and girls. A concert by these folks is worth a great deal more. From the website www.musicalchair2015.com: When Katherine Rohrer was recovering from colorectal surgery at Cleveland Clinic, she noticed recliners in the room had been donated by grateful patients.  She realized that she could use her gift as a vocalist and network of artists to make an impact on patient care for those to follow.  The proceeds raised through her concert will benefit the highest priority needs for colorectal surgery patients at the Cleveland Clinic. Katherine's overall goal for this benefit concert is to raise a total of $5000.  By asking for a minimum of $15 per ticket, she hopes the generosity of those attending will help her reach her goal. Great music performed by wonderful local based artists for a good cause. Football season is over. See you Sunday, February 8 at 3 p.m. in Bexley. I'm taking names.
