North Ridgeville native Spencer Myer tickles the ivories at tonight's Oberlin College Presidential Inauguration Concert. He's one of the featured alumni performing at the show honoring new president Marvin Krislov. "Even in high school, I didn't know what a career in music actually meant," says Myer, a 2000 graduate. "But I knew it was what I wanted to do." Violinist Jennifer Koh and baritone Robert Sims (both Oberlin alums) also perform.Myer will play obscure pieces by Bach, Debussy, and Stravinsky during his set. "Oberlin has always been into exploring the unexplored and playing lesser-known things," he says. "I thought I would bring something a little bit off the beaten path." Showtime is 8:30 p.m. at Finney Chapel, 39 West College Street in Oberlin. Admission is free. Call 440-775-8269 or visit www.oberlin.edu.
Fri., Nov. 2, 8:30 p.m., 2007
