This spring John Goldsmith brought his storied career as Heinz Chapel Choir Director and musicianship lecturer to an inspiring close. On a balmy Sunday afternoon, current faculty and students, University leadership, and many alumni of Heinz Chapel Choir flooded into Heinz Chapel to see Goldsmith lead the choir one last time. Once the chapel was full to overflowing, attendees walked across to Alumni Hall Auditorium where they enjoyed a live video stream of the concert.
