Music Bach’s Concert Series – Keegan McClellan 1:00 pm
Music Bach’s Concert Series – Keegan McClellan @ Alumni Memorial Union atrium
Feb 12 @ 1:00 pm
The University of Findlay will welcome acoustic guitarist Keegan McClellan on Feb. 12. This concert, which is part of the free Music Bach’s Concert Series, will take place from 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. in the Alumni Memorial Union atrium. McClellan is an acoustic guitar solo artist whose music is characterized by a mixture of techniques of modern fingerstyle. In 2008, McClellan turned down a scholarship opportunity at the University of Tennessee Knoxville’s jazz school to perfect and perform this new acoustic fingerstyle technique. McClellan’s playing incorporates percussive strikes, hand tapping, alternate tunings and other types of unconventional techniques to create a piece of musical art. His original music pieces showcase his dedication to his musical art form, and his desire to produce a sound that is musically inclined to multiple musical tastes. In 2011, McClellan was selected as one of eight artists to compete in the Yamaha Six String Theory Guitar Contest and his original piece, “Kill the Prophets,” was featured and ranked on Gods of Indie Guitar 2011, which is an album featuring worldwide independent guitarists. Music Bach’s Concert Series is a free concert series presented by UF’s Campus Program Board, and Student Activities, Commuter Services and Leadership Development. Campus Program Board is a student-led group that strives to bring high-quality, diverse entertainment to campus. Call 419-434-4606 for more information.

Wit 7:30 pm
Wit @ The Ritz Theatre
Feb 12 @ 7:30 pm
“Wit,” the winner of the 1999 Pulitzer Prize for Drama by Margaret Edson, is about Vivian Bearing, Ph.D., a renowned professor of English who has spent years studying and teaching the brilliant and difficult metaphysical sonnets of John Donne. She has been diagnosed with terminal ovarian cancer. Her approach to the study of Donne is aggressively probing and intensely rational, but during the course of her illness, and her stint as a prize patient in an experimental chemotherapy program at a major teaching hospital, Vivian comes to reassess her life and her work with a profundity and humor that are transformative both for her and the audience.

An Hour of Rare Gems @ Trinity Episcopal Church
Feb 14 @ 4:00 pm
If you enjoy unearthing hidden or forgotten gems, the Full Sound Chamber Group has a program just for you. The group comes to Trinity Episcopal Church on Sunday, Feb. 14, with musical selections from the classical repertory that are seldom if ever heard, but probably deserve to be performed more often. Selections include a sinfonia by Johann Hasse, some “ear candy” written by pianist and composer Vincenzo de Meglio, and a “small symphony” by Gustav Jensen. Last but not least is a more familiar sing-along, “Give Thanks.” The Full Sound Chamber Group consists of five brothers: Shalem Loritsch, violin; Chesed Loritsch, violin; Chayah Loritsch, viola; Racham Loritsch, cello; Tsidqah Loritsch, double-bass and piano. The family group has been performing together for five years. Both Shalem and Tsidqah perform with the Central Ohio Symphony Orchestra in Delaware.
