Local tenors, Michael Mays, Bob Sauser, and Harv Wileman, will present an informal concert featuring tenor repertoire on Sunday beginning at 3 p.m. in the sanctuary of First Christian Church (Disciples of Christ), 650 McCallie Ave., across from UTC. 

"The wide variety of music should appeal to everyone," organizers said.

Included will be opera by Rossini, Donizetti, and Puccini; broadway from Les Mis, West Side Story, Follies, Phantom, The Most Happy Fella, and The Secret Garden; songs by Barber, Rorem, Strauss, and Simon and Garfunkel; and renaissance trios by Byrd and Agazzari.

Joining the three tenors will be Joy Mays, piano; Sara Snider Schone, mezzo-soprano; and David Ingle, tenor and melodeon.

A freewill offering will be taken to benefit the Week of Compassion ministry, the relief, refugee, and development mission fund of the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) in the United States and Canada. The ministry seeks to equip and empower disciples to alleviate the suffering of others through disaster response, humanitarian aid, sustainable development, and the promotion of mission opportunities," officials said.
