Toledo Symphony Concert

Founder’s Hall – Sauder Village
Thursday, March 14, 2024

6:45pm doors open

7:30 p.m. performance

The Black Swamp Arts Council and Sauder Village welcome the Toledo Symphony to Founder’s Hall for the 34th year. We are pleased to be part of TSO’s Neighborhood Concert Series in 2024, helping bring the symphony to our rural neighbors. The Symphony offers a unique program each year, specially chosen for our audience creating a “lasting musical moment”.

Free general admission tickets are awarded to local students (K-12) who would like to see the performance. Generous patrons, sponsors and underwriters make this gift possible. Some students come with their school music teachers while others attend with friends and family. This is a great opportunity for youth to enjoy symphonic music – some for the first time ever!

All monies raised through sponsorships and ticket sales are used to cover the cost of bringing the symphony to our community and introducing our youth to the magnificence of a live performance.

Monday, February 26th is the deadline to purchase Patron Tickets to be recognized in the program.

Guest Conductor for the evening:  
Daniel Wiley

Daniel Wiley has quickly become a notable young conductor on the rise, having made guest appearances with the Cincinnati Ballet, Toledo Symphony, Orchestra Iowa & Quad City Ballet, Salisbury Symphony, Windsor (Ontario) Symphony Orchestra, Windsor Abridged Opera, London (Ontario) Symphonia, Boise Philharmonic, Abilene Philharmonic, Denali Chamber Orchestra, Meridian Symphony, Equilibrium Ensemble (Italy), and the University of North Florida Opera and is currently the Assistant Conductor for the Cincinnati Symphony Orchestra & Pops.

 Prior to his tenure with the CSO, Daniel held numerous conducting posts, including Assistant Conductor of the Jacksonville Symphony, Music Director of the Jacksonville Symphony Youth Orchestras, Associate Conductor of the Windsor Symphony Orchestra, Music Director of the Windsor Symphony Youth Orchestras, Music Director of the Windsor Symphony Community Orchestra, Wind Ensemble Conductor at the School of Creative Arts at the University of Windsor, Education Conductor/Consultant for London Symphonia, Conductor for the Windsor Abridged Opera Company, Music Director of Texas Academy of Mathematics and Science Youth Orchestra, and Assistant Conductor for the Meridian Symphony Orchestra.

During the pandemic, Daniel was instrumental in expanding the Windsor Symphony’s educational footprint by creating a digital education concert series that includes 12 hours of interactive music curriculum for schools. This program has been lauded as “an exemplar of impassioned and outstanding pedagogy” (Dr. Ken Montgomery, Dean of the Faculty of Education, University of Windsor) and recognized by the Ontario Provincial Parliament as an example of how an orchestra can change lives through music, even during a time of unprecedented uncertainty. To date, this program has served more than 200,000 students across the United States and Canada. In 2019, Wiley was the second prize recipient of both the Smoky Mountain International Conducting Institute and Competition and the Los Angeles International Conducting Competition.

Daniel has also spent time conducting new music ensembles, including for the Musicbed Music and Film Corporation based in Fort Worth, Texas, as well as participating in the Composing in the Wilderness program as part of the Fairbanks Summer Arts Festival in Fairbanks, Alaska. Through this program, Wiley has conducted numerous world premieres in Denali National Park. As a former public-school music teacher, Wiley has a unique passion for music education, and frequently donates his time as a guest clinician to support students and teachers in music programs across North America.
