Wed, May 17, 2017, 7:00 PM – 8:30 PM EDT
The Baldwin-Reynolds House Museum and Bush Investment Group are excited to present the upcoming performance of nationally renowned musicians VOX this spring in Meadville. On May 17th, 2017, the museum will welcome the one and only VOX, featured recently on the hit television show America's Got Talent, to Ford Chapel on the Campus of Allegheny College for one night only.
"The museum is thrilled to bring VOX to Meadville," according to Joshua Sherretts, Museum Director and Historical Society President. "We're excited to be able to enrich and entertain our community with the best of culture and the arts- this year working with Greg and his amazing crew at Bush Investment Group to do so!"
Sometimes known as "Opera's Boy Band," the group became instantly popular after their run on the show, first filling living rooms and now concert halls with musical theater classics, their own twists on chart topping hits, and timeless selections of opera that everyone will recognize.
Following their debut on NBC’s hit show America’s Got Talent, VOX became an overnight sensation. In the recent months since airing on the show the group has garnered over 1.5 million YouTube views, 500 Twitter followers, 2,500 Facebook fans, and has given multiple concerts nationwide.
VOX will be playing in Meadville assisted by our region's own accomplished pianist, Wendy Plyler on May 17th at 7pm. The concert is also generously sponsored by Luminous Water Solutions, Wesbury Retirement Community, Kuhn Tool and Die, Key Bank, Sam and Barb Spencer, and Optical Filters. There are still more sponsorship opportunities available.
"We're thrilled to have Wendy involved in this performance as well," said Sherretts. "She's a fantastic musician of a national caliber and I'm sure this performance will be one to remember."
Wendy Plyler is an active performer and piano instructor in the Meadville community, as well as a faculty adjunct at Allegheny College. She has performed extensively in the Northwest PA area, Ohio, West Virginia, Boston (Massachusetts) and New York as both soloist and accompanist. She holds a Bachelor of Music Degree in Piano Performance from the New England Conservatory of Music in Boston, Massachusetts, where she studied with Patricia Zander, Steven Drury, and the late Louis Krasner. While in middle school and high school, she was a student of Alec Chien of Allegheny College.
The Baldwin-Reynolds House Museum, owned and operated by the Crawford County Historical Society, was the one time home of United States Supreme Court Justice Henry Baldwin and serves as the Society's museum and largest programming arm. They have hosted several major programs since their 200th birthday in 2013, transforming themselves from a small town museum to a hub of arts and culture in northwest Pennsylvania. The museum has welcomed lectures, concerts, Antiques Roadshow appraisers, and other performances during that time, following the model of the Chautauqua Institution. Mark Russell, Public Television satirist has performed twice since 2013, most recently in April 2016. Ernest Hemmingway's personal secretary and daughter-in-law, Valerie Hemmingway, has also given a lecture.
VOX will perform May 17th, 2017 at 7pm at Ford Chapel on the Campus of Allegheny College. Tickets are $25 each and can be purchased online at www.baldwinreynolds.org or by calling the Crawford County Convention and Visitor's Bureau at 814.333.1258.
