Music from Heaven and earth
Our 2013-14 season is titled Music from Heaven and Earth because we seek through an expanded 6 concert series to celebrate the very best of earthly ecstasy, heavenly bliss, and the constant attempts to merge the two. Highlights of the season will include our reunions with Bodiography Contemporary Ballet, Pittsburgh Festival Orchestra, and River City Brass and a new partnership with the Pittsburgh Philharmonic. Join us on a year-long look at the way choral music helps us see ourselves more clearly and experience things beyond ourselves for the first time.
