The Zin Quartet (Plus One) – Schumann’s Piano Quintet (#44 in E-flat Major) – "Schumann's opus was composed in 1842. Well known as "extroverted, and exuberant" character, Schumann's piano quintet is considered one of his finest compositions and a major work of nineteenth-century chamber music.[1] Composed for piano and string quartet, the work revolutionized the instrumentation and musical character of the piano quintet and established it as a quintessentially Romantic genre."

St. Tim’s Discovers is a music series authorized by the vestry of St. Timothy's Episcopal Church. Its goal is to present local soloists and ensembles, particularly young musicians, in the greater Toledo area. The context of St. Tim’s Discovers is the Church with most of the programs reflecting the traditions of Christian worship.


The Discovers Board


St. Tim's Discovers is governed by a working board of directors who pull together to "grow" the ministry, seek out performing artists, publicize events, provide stage and house management as well as hospitality for concerts (and artists), and raise funds to cover artist honoraria, costs of advertising, copyright permissions, etc. While it's not a "attend one meeting/conference call a year" type of gig, nor is board service noisome or burdensome. If you have a passion for music and using this gift of God to reach into our community, please consider approaching Fr. Jeff, Karen Smith, Bill Davis or Doug Neckers to make further inquiry about board nomination.
