Heinz Chapel Chamber Choir Festival


February 21, 2016 - 3:30pm

Heinz Chapel Choir will host three high school chamber choirs from the region in its annual Chamber Choir Festival: the Pine-Richland Chamber Singers from Pine-Richland High School (Lee Rickard, director), Top 21 from Bethel Park High School (Todd Kuczawa, director), and the Dallastown Vocal Ensemble from Dallastown Area High School (Jennifer McCleary, director). Each guest choir will perform several a cappella works ranging in style from Renaissance motets, to English madrigals, to jazz, including a signature work in a style of their choice.

While not a competition, the student ensemble will receive comments from guest adjudicators Dr. Mark Boyle (Seton Hill University) and Dr. Susan Medley (Washington and Jefferson College). The HCC will join in the spirit of the festival as well, singing a cappella repertoire from the Renaissance and Romantic eras, as well as the 20th century.
