Now, you can hear and see the origin of that ubiquitous vocal sample.

The Toledo Symphony Orchestra is collaborating with several choruses from Bowling Green State University to provide an earth-shaking blast of opera, belted from 200 performers inside the Peristyle at The Toledo Museum of Art.

Performances are at 8 p.m. Friday and Saturday. For tickets, contact the TSO Box Office: 419-246-8000.
