Schiede Music Center

The Wooster Singers, The College of Wooster’s only all-treble choir, will perform a concert Nov. 20 at 7:30 p.m. at the Gault Recital Hall in Scheide Music Center (525 E. University Street). In this Fall Concert, the Wooster Singers continue a tradition of performing music related to issues relevant to students and the community, this time with a theme that focuses on the concept of light.  

“We’re asking the audience to consider how people can be a light for one another and how to celebrate the unique light that exists within each person,” explained director Victoria Peacock, adjunct instructor of music at the College. 

Peacock is a choral conductor, singer, and educator. In addition to directing the Wooster Singers, she is the chorus coordinator at The Cleveland Orchestra and performs regularly with the Trinity Chamber Singers and the Cleveland Orchestra Chorus. Peacock holds a bachelor’s degree in music composition from The College of Wooster and a master’s degree in choral conducting from the Boston Conservatory at Berklee. 

Students in the choir include Imzadia Conrad ’23, Ellen Daugherty ’25, Elizabeth Kotora ’25, Danielle Libby ’26, Sophia Marshall ’23, Libby Merkel ’25, Jen Mynard ’23, Katrina Palmer ’25, Jordyn Risk ’26, Morgan Smock ’23, Sitara True ’25, Maud Utstein ’23, and Abby Washinger ’25. Pianist Toni Shreve will accompany the singers.  

Wooster Singers is open to all students without audition and performs music by composers of all backgrounds and periods throughout history. Performances feature students participating in their first choral ensemble experience, as well as students who are studying toward a career in music. 

The concert is free and open to the public. For more information, contact Melissa Puster in the Department of Music at 330-263-2419 or mpuster@wooster.edu.
