A native of Germany, Goerne has received accolades for his interpretation of lieder. The Washington Post wrote, "His baritone is one of enveloping warmth, set aglow by a gently flickering vibrato."

Goerne has performed extensively throughout Europe and the U.S., including singing with the Metropolitan Opera, the London Philharmonic, the Berlin Philharmonic, the Chamber Orchestra of Europe, the Philadelphia Orchestra, the Pittsburgh Symphony, and the San Francisco Symphony. In 1999, his recording of the Hollywood Songbook was nominated for a Grammy Award for Best Classical Vocal Performance.

The performance begins at 8 p.m. in OWU's Gray Chapel Auditorium, 61 S. Sandusky St.

Single tickets are $10 for general admission, $8 for senior citizens, and $4 for students ages 6 to 18. For more information or to reserve tickets call 740-368-3185.
