Heinz Chapel Choir: Singing All the Time

The Heinz Chapel Choir's spring program, Singing All the Time, is inspired by the reflections of an elderly Englishman who traced the only pleasure in his life to the act of singing. The music embraces a variety of styles and colors, including pieces by Tallis, Pärt, Antognini and Ešenvalds, as well as a piece from the Shapenote tradition accompanied by HCC members Joon Park, violin and Stefan Poost, cello.
