Music with a Mission concert set at church


First Presbyterian Church in Seymour will present Music with a Mission, an American music concert, at 1 p.m. Aug. 26 at the church, 301 N. Walnut St., Seymour.

The concert is a mission project with proceeds going to benefit Margaret R. Brown and Seymour-Jackson elementary schools.

Admission to the concert is free, and donations will be accepted.

Church choir director Jeremiah Sanders will sing baritone with Megan Bartsch playing the piano.

Sanders is an active performer, teacher, conductor and composer and is currently attending Indiana University’s Jacobs School of Music pursuing a performer’s diploma under the tutelage of renowned singer and teacher Jane Dutton.

Sanders recently returned from a six-week contract in New York City, covering the role of Ford in Verdi’s Falstaff with renowned opera singer Martina Arroyo’s Prelude to Performance.

His spring season yielded a first-place win with the Friends of the Symphony (Lima Symphony Orchestra) Young Artist Competition; a second-place finish with the Indianapolis Matinee Musicale Collegiate Scholarship Competition; and a Caldwell Memorial Award with the National Society of Arts and Letters Vocal Competition.

This fall, Sanders will sing Peter in Hansel and Gretel with Indiana University’s Opera and Ballet Theater in Bloomington and Indianapolis.
