Pitt-Greensburg Chorale to present fall concert

The Pitt-Greensburg Chorale and Chamber Singers will present their annual fall concert at 7:30 p.m. on Friday, December 10, in the Mary Lou Campana Chapel and Lecture Center. Directed by Christopher Bartley, instructor of music at Pitt-Greensburg, the ensembles will feature music from Benjamin Britten’s “A Ceremony of Carols” and John Rutter’s “Five Childhood Lyrics” to illustrate the concert’s theme of “The Child.” This event is free and open to the public.

The 25-voice choral group recently performed a solo concert in October as part of their ongoing efforts to raise funds to enable them to accept an invitation to sing at Carnegie Hall in fall 2011. This spring, the ensembles will team with the choirs of Seton Hill University in two special performances of Carl Orff’s “Carmina Burana.”

Founded in 1963, the University of Pittsburgh at Greensburg is a publicly assisted, four-year, liberal arts college in southwestern Pennsylvania. Pitt-Greensburg offers 24 baccalaureate degree programs, including new majors in Education and Spanish, as well as 19 minors, and numerous relocation program options to the Pittsburgh campus. Fifteen percent of Pitt-Greensburg’s full-time faculty—the highest percentage of any University of Pittsburgh campus—have received the prestigious University-wide Chancellor’s Distinguished Teaching Award.
