It is not a requirement to see the show to purchase reception tickets, but a reception ticket is not a substitute for a performance ticket, which needed to be purchased separately. Reception tickets cost $100 and can be purchased at the Marathon Center’s box office, which is open from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday, and they will also be sold when the building opens for the show.

The All-City 6th Grade Orchestra will perform with the Findlay High School Chamber Orchestra at 7 p.m. Tuesday, May 9, in the Findlay High School R.L. Heminger Auditorium; the FHS Symphony Orchestra will present its Finale Spring Concert at 7:30 p.m. Monday, May 15, also in the auditorium; and the 7th and 8th Grade All-City Orchestra will perform with members of the Toledo Symphony Orchestra at 7 p.m. Thursday, May 18, at the Marathon Center for the Performing Arts. All three concerts are free and open to the public. The Findlay City Schools orchestra directors are Ken Pressel, David Brax and Anita Schaible. The May 9 show pairs 56 beginning string students with 21 advanced high school musicians. The high school string players tutored the beginning students in March with after-school lessons. The beginning orchestra will perform two musical selections, followed by four musical selections by the FHS Chamber Orchestra, including “Dust in the Wind” and “Day Tripper.” The two groups will combine for two finale selections, “Tribal Voices” and “Orpheus in the Underworld.” The May 15 concert will include 10 musical selections, including two selections the FHS Symphony Orchestra performed at the State Orchestra Contest when it received a superior rating: “Brother James’ Air” and “Folk Songs of the British Isles.” The concert will also include “Disquietude,” a piece composed and directed by FHS senior Austin Hamilton and a piano solo played by FHS senior Ryan Zheng, “Prelude in G Minor (Op. 23, No. 5)” by Sergei Rachmaninoff. The May 18 show, “Spirit of America,” will feature seven pieces with an Americana theme, with a short historical commentary to introduce each one. Mayor Lydia Mihalik will serve as the concert’s commentator. The show came about after the Findlay City Schools orchestra program collaborated with the Toledo Symphony to bring nine professional string musicians to Glenwood and Donnell Middle School to work with the students during their spring orchestra classes. Several donors made the program possible, including key sponsor Marathon Petroleum, and the Mariann Dana Younger Fund at the Community Foundation, and the Findlay Music Boosters.

Angela Perley and the Howlin’ Moons 10:00 pm
Angela Perley and the Howlin’ Moons @ Yucatan Findlay
May 19 @ 10:00 pm
Angela Perley and the Howlin’ Moons will bring their brand of Americana rock ‘n’ roll to the Yucatan Findlay, 1851 Tiffin Ave., at 10 p.m. Friday, May 19. Admission is $5. The Columbus-based band was recently voted the No. 1 local band in Columbus Alive’s 2017 Readers’ Poll. Its sound combines electric guitars, swooning vocals, and songs that split the difference between rock ‘n’ roll and dreamy psychedelia. The band is touring in support of its second album, “Homemade Vision,” released in 2016. Like the band’s debut, “Hey Kid” — an album whose kickoff track, “Athens,” earned Perley an International Songwriting Award in 2014 — “Homemade Vision” was recorded in the Howlin’ Moons’ hometown. Many of the songs were dreamt up somewhere along the highways and backroads that crisscross America, brought to life by a group of roots-rock musicians who regularly play more than 100 shows a year. As a result, “Homemade Vision” builds a sound where the influences of David Gilmour, Tom Petty, Led Zeppelin, and Nebula intersect. Chris Connor’s guitar playing — a flurry of fuzz, crunch, twang and bang — occupies just as large a role as Perley’s voice, while Billy Zehnal’s bass — coupled with cymbal crashes and snare hits from an arsenal of heavy-hitting drummers — glues the mix together. For more information, call the Yucatan Findlay at 419-425-1965 or visit www.angelaperley.com.
