Organ/ Choral Program for February By Donna Groom - Sub-Dean (firstname.lastname@example.org)
Hello and warm greetings in this cold month of February! I hope that everyone has recovered from the winter blast, holiday parties and is now looking forward to the march to spring and all the music that comes with that journey!
Our next meeting will take place on February 23, 2015, at the Episcopal Church of the Redeemer, 5700 Forbes Avenue, Pittsburgh, PA 15217 (Squirrel Hill) 412.422.7100. The church is very near the Forbes and Murray Avenue intersection with off-street parking available.
In this small but beautiful English-style country church the students from Duquesne University will present a program of choral, organ, and instrumental music by the beloved Pittsburgh composer and Duquesne University faculty member Joseph Willcox Jenkins. An updated list of his compositions will be available.
I’d like to extend our thanks and gratitude to Nathan Carterette and the Church of the Redeemer for hosting our meeting and program at this beautiful gem tucked back on Forbes Avenue.
