Westerville Symphony Presents A Voyage to Scandinavia

The Westerville Symphony at Otterbein University is proud to announce the opening concert of its 36th season, which we are calling Music Beyond our Borders.. The program includes pieces by the three titans of Scandinavian composers: Grieg, Nielsen and Sibelius. Each has their unique compositional style which evokes the musical landscape of beautiful northern Europe. The concert takes place on October 14, 2018 at 5 p.m. at the Fritsche Theatre in Cowan Hall at Otterbein University.

The concert opens with two Norwegian marches. The first, Entry March of the Boyars by Johan Halverson, is one of the most beloved marches to come out of Norway and Halverson has often been referred to as the Norwegian John Philip Sousa. Edvard Grieg’s March of the Trolls exhibits the quintessential sounds that we associate with Grieg’s music. Originally written for piano as part of his Lyric Suite, op. 54, Grieg wrote of his own music: “Composers with the stature of a Bach or Beethoven have erected grand churches and temples. I have always wished to build villages, places were people can feel happy and comfortable… the music of my country has been my model.”

Carl Nielsen is widely regarded as Denmark’s finest composer and his Concerto for Flute and Orchestra captures his eclectic style of sudden musical mood swings full of gorgeous melodies and powerful rhythmic strife. His compositions are musical journeys full of chromaticism and wide dynamic shifts. The Flute Concerto is one of his most beloved compositions and was the first of five planned concertos for the symphonic wind instruments, he only completed two. Full of beauty, humor and power, Nielsen invites the audience to take a trip with him that involves many unexpected twists and turns. Performing the concerto is principal flute of the Westerville Symphony, Kimberlee Goodman.

A musical voyage to Scandinavia would be remiss to not include the music of Finnish composer Jean Sibelius and thus the concerts rounds out with his astounding Fifth Symphony. About this work Sibelius wrote: “In a deep valley again…but I already dimly to see the mountain that I shall surely ascend… God opens His door for a moment and His orchestra plays the Fifth Symphony.” He started composing the work after returning to Finland from a trip to the United States and at the cusp of the break out of World War I. Weary of the war’s outcome and his travels, Sibelius withdrew from public life to his log cabin in Ainola, Finland. The symphony, in its initial form, had its premiere in 1915, a performance Sibelius was not happy with. He withdrew his score and initiated several revisions over the span of four years until the final version was heard in 1919 in Helsinki. It is said that Sibelius evokes epic landscapes in his works and one hears the beauty of Ainola especially in the expansive melodic fervor of the third movement. The musical pictorial element is evident in this movement with horn chords that represent swans in flight. The stunning symphony is sunny and pastoral with brief dark clouds that dissipate as quickly as they arrive. It is easy to lump all of Scandinavia into one entity, however, upon experiencing the music of these iconic Scandinavia composers, one hears the simplistic beauty of the rural Norwegian culture, the eclectic character of the Danes and the expansive beauty of the Finnish landscape.

Otterbein University’s New President to Speak at Graduate Guest Lecture on Oct. 16

Westerville, OH—The Otterbein University Graduate School’s annual fall Executive Guest Lecture Series will feature Otterbein’s 21st president, John Comerford, on Tuesday, Oct. 16, at The Point, 60 Collegeview Road. A reception starts at 6 p.m. followed by the presentation at 6:30 p.m. Comerford will discuss how graduate programs will continue to impact the growth and innovation of not only the Westerville community, but central Ohio and beyond.

Comerford comes to Otterbein with over 20 years of experience in university leadership, including the past 13 years at liberal arts institutions. His most recent role was at Blackburn College in downstate Illinois, where he served as president. During his time there, the institution achieved enrollment growth through a focus on underserved populations, a record-breaking fundraising campaign, the launch of new academic and co-curricular programs, investments in faculty/staff compensation, and the renovation of four major campus buildings.

Prior to Blackburn, Comerford worked at Westminster College (Missouri), Missouri Western State University, and Ball State University (Indiana). He studied political science as an undergraduate student at Western Illinois University and thought he was headed to law school until a mentor told him he might enjoy a student affairs profession. That led him to earn a master’s degree in student personnel administration at the University of Central Missouri. He earned his doctorate degree in higher education administration at the University of Kansas, where he also worked on a Lumina Grant to study student migration patterns.

The lecture is free and open to the public. Register at Contact the Graduate School at with questions.

Quarterly Breakfast @ Northstar!

With Census 2020 on the horizon, and the Village of Sunbury on the cusp of becoming a city, residents of Sunbury will be given a choice this November to vote to establish a Charter, and if so, which 15 individuals will be elected to serve on a Charter Commission that will be tasked with creating the Charter.
