Good Stuff in TEC: Pittsburgh

St. Andrew's in Highland Park is pleased to announce that we are hosting the choir of men and boys from Hereford Cathedral, England this fall.

The choir is steeped in the English Choral Tradition. The cathedral, in the Diocese of Hereford, founded in 676 A.D., makes mention in its statutes as early as 1246 of the existence of a song school for choristers. The choir is known throughout the world through BBC broadcasts, recordings, and participation in the world's longest running music festival, the Three Choirs Festival. Elgar, Vaughan Williams, and Howells are but three composers who
have written music for the choir and conducted it for special performances.

The choir will sing a concert on Tuesday, October 28 at
8:00 p.m. Please contact the church office (412 661-1245)
for tickets.

In addition to the concert at St. Andrew's, the choir will also be singing at the Noonday Eucharist at First Lutheran Church, 615 Grant St. in downtown Pittsburgh, on Wednesday, October 29, as well as Choral Evensong at Calvary Church on Wednesday, October 29 at 6:30 p.m.
