NORWALK

Tickets went on sale this month for Norwalk's Town and Country Players Inc., which is getting back to its roots for its 42nd season.

The orchestra, concert and theater production group was founded in 1966 to raise money for elementary school music programs.

In past years the group has hosted professional orchestral entertainment groups, but this year they are featuring collegiate choruses, bands and glee clubs.

The goal is to promote music in education and help music programs raise money, according to Town and Country Founder Ronn Koerper.

"Now we're back using schools to do the performances," he said. "Nothing thrills me more than to see theater groups with youth in them catching on to the power of music."

The season kicks off with Bowling Green State University's Men's Chorus, which will perform at 3 p.m. Nov. 11 at Norwalk High School's Ernsthausen Performing Arts Center.

Miami University's Glee Club, which is celebrating its 100th anniversary this year, will perform at 3 p.m. Dec. 16 at same location.

Cedarville University's Chorale & Stage Band will perform "A Musical Matinee!" at 3 p.m. Feb. 24 at Clyde High School's Performing Arts Center.

Tickets for the first two shows are $15 in advance or at the door. Tickets for the Cedarville University show are $10.
