Heinz Chapel Choir

Heinz Chapel Choir Holiday Concert, Nov. 29

Dr. Susan Rice leads this year’s Heinz Chapel Choir Holiday Concerts, titled …called by love and angels. The ensemble will sing music in seven languages by composers including Josquin, Mendelssohn, Vaughan Williams, Ippolitov-Ivanov, and Alfred Burt.

Organist (and HCC alum) Steven Anisko once again joins the HCC in these concerts. For the organ interlude that precedes the traditional candlelight carol and window lighting, Ansiko will perform Dr. Robert Sutherland Lord’s “Meditation on a Polish Carol” in tribute to the late Professor of Music, Emeritus.

“We Have Made Music”

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.
