Columbus Women’s Chorus and Howling at the Moon

The Columbus Women’s Chorus and Howling at the Moon will blend the unique talents of both groups for an unforgettable concert of music and monologues that promises to be humorous, touching and entertaining. The concert will be presented on March 4th at 7:30 and 5th at 3:00 at the Bowen Theater, OSU.

Howling at the Moon is a company of eight women over 60 who write and perform their lives. They bring a variety of cultures, artistic backgrounds and viewpoints to what it means to grow older. Their stories range from funny to deeply personal to inspirational. Dr. Joy Reilly, who is internationally known for her pioneering work in senior theatre, leads Howling at the Moon. They have performed at the 2004 Senior Theatre of America Festival in Las Vegas, Columbus Cultural Arts Center and the Port Clinton Arts Festival.

The Columbus Women’s Chorus is celebrating their eighteenth season of choral performance. The Columbus Women’s Chorus is led by artistic director, Dr. Patricia O’Toole. Dr. O’Toole has been recognized for making music more inclusive. The 75 voices of the Columbus Women’s Chorus offer audiences a choral experience that far exceeds the traditional vocal experience. Their Repertoire is diverse and inspiring as it celebrates ordinary women doing extraordinary things.

“We are truly excited about this collaboration,” said O’Toole. “The combinations of diverse and inspiring repertoire, along with the unique voices and style of the members of Howling at the Moon, will engage our audiences in a very intimate experience,” O’Toole added.

Tickets are available for $10 and can be purchased on-line at
