July 2010 - Music Notes

Thank you to all who served on the Land of Lakes Choir Boys Task Force!  The preparation in hosting the Viking Choir at Bower Hill on June 15 took a lot of time and energy from a number of people.  The concert was a great success, thanks to the many participants of the Task Force.

 

Throughout the summer, we hope you will consider joining a ‘pick-up’ choir.  On the following Sundays, whoever wants to come and sing an anthem for Worship is welcome.  We will meet at 8:45 a.m. in the sanctuary and prepare an anthem to sing during the Offertory.  The dates for July and August are: July 11, July 18, August 1, August 15

The Pittsburgh Compline Choir is a mixed voice, auditioned choir of approximately 25 members, that exists for the purpose of singing and praying the monastic office of Compline.  The name Compline comes from the Latin word completorium or completed, and is sometimes called Night Prayer or Prayer at the Close of the Day.  The Pittsburgh Compline Choir joins with members of the community at Heinz Memorial Chapel on the campus of the University of Pittsburgh during the Pitt school year for 40 minutes of music, prayer and silence to thank God for the blessings of the day and pray for forgiveness, peace and rest.

 

On Monday, July 26, the Pittsburgh Compline Choir will sing a service for the Association of Lutheran Church Musicians Conference.  This will be held at Trinity Cathedral, downtown, at 8 p.m.  This service will be conducted by our own Director of Music Ministries, Jessica Baier, since the Director of the Choir, Dr. Alastair Stout, will be out of town.
