Thomas Buckner, who trained as an opera singer and made his mark as an advocate for new music, will perform Monday at 8 p.m. in Bryan Recital Hall on the Bowling Green State University campus.
The recital will be devoted to music by Robert Ashley, a composer known for his operatic and multimedia innovations and use of idiomatic English as texts.
Buckner sings on more than 40 recordings including nine featuring the work of Ashley.
He sang the lead roles in Ashley's operas "Atlanta (Acts of God)" and "eL/Aficionado," which was written specifically for Buckner.
In addition to Ashley, the baritone has collaborated with composers Alvin Lucier, Morton Subotnik, Roscoe Mitchell and many others.

BG Winterfest ready to rock

Music venues will keep the Winterfest rocking on Saturday night.
Grounds for Thought will host Bob Manley with the drummer Bob Rex band. The group plays regular Sunday night sessions at the Village Idiot in Maumee.
Manley explained recently that the band has been working with a couple younger keyboard players. Kyle Turner will be bringing in his Hammond B3 and Leslie amp. The sound veers toward a funkier, greasier style of jazz, Manley, who plays saxophone and flute.
Also, having Turner on organ frees John Johnson up to switch from bass to guitar, his main instrument, Manley said.
At Howard's Club H, the all-female punk band Kitty Glitter will headline a show. Featured acts will be Mechanical Cat and Fragile X.
At Stone's Throw, Acoustic Penguin, featuring teen fiddle prodigy Grant Flick, will play its distinctive mix of bluegrass and swing.
Touch of Paris Toledo museum opens Tuileries Garden exhibit PDF Print E-mail

Bosio Hercules Battling Achelus
Admitted it, just about now Paris in blossom sounds pretty good.
As Northwest Ohio muddles through a particularly harsh winter, the Toledo Museum of Art is providing a taste of just that.
The Art of the Louvre's Tuileries Garden, which includes over 100 objects most from the Louvre in Paris, opened Thursday at the museum and will continue through May 11, when we can hope it will actually be spring here.
Bringing the show to Toledo required some heavy lifting. That included a number of marble and one massive bronze sculpture of Hercules.
These have been deployed to stunning effect in the museum's Canaday Gallery. Entering the first gallery the visitor can well imagine being on a path in the garden, with massive figures lining the way.
The layout a collaboration by the museum Claude Fixler and the curator Richard Putney, of the University of Toledo, is striking.
Museum Director Brian Kennedy explained that the goal was to give the sense of being in one small section of the 64-acre garden.
The garden was originally part of the grounds for a palace built in 1564. The grounds were later redesigned by the landscape architect Andre Le Notre at the behest of Louis the XIV, known as "The Sun King,"
