Heinz Chapel Choir is celebrating its 80th Anniversary by commissioning a new choral work to honor the legacy of the late John Goldsmith. Goldsmith directed HCC from 1989–2014, building it into a renowned ensemble with a fiercely loyal audience.
The choir has commissioned Bob Chilcott to compose a setting of Charles Bennett’s poem “When Spring Comes Walking” intertwined with a verse of “O Come, O Come, Emmanuel.” The new work will receive its premiere at the choir’s 80th Anniversary Concert on Sunday, April 14th, 2019 at 3 p.m.
Heinz Chapel Choir has launched a campaign to raise money for the commission fee and we would be delighted if you would support this beautiful tribute to John and celebration of 80 years of beautiful music making.
