Chorale group offers spring Singpiration

 


The South Hills Chorale will perform its annual spring concert program Friday, May 30 and Saturday, May 31 at Westminster Church on Washington Road in Upper St. Clair.

Performances start at 7:30 p.m. A variety of choral works will delight audiences, with selections both traditional and contemporary. The chorale will present The heavens are telling from Joseph Haydn’s masterpiece The Creation, the patriotic Battle Hymn of the Republic, The Impossible Dream from Man of La Mancha and several other pieces with their roots in the Broadway stage, among others.

The chorale—under the direction of Phillip R. Aley and assistant director Erich Lascek—is comprised of more than 75 members from communities all over the Pittsburgh area. As an all-volunteer, non-profit organization of auditioned singers who delight in bringing music to others, the chorale’s members represent a wide variety of backgrounds and walks of life. They are bound together by their love of music and their passion for performance.

The South Hills Chorale has been entertaining audiences throughout Pittsburgh and Western Pennsylvania for 54 years. In addition to their regular concerts in the spring and during the holiday season, they also perform private concerts for conventions, and for community and social and social groups.

In keeping with its community mission, many performances are given at facilities serving the elderly and medically challenged.

Tickets for the spring concert are $15 and are available by advance sale or at the door. Group rate sales are also available for parties of 10 or greater at $12 per ticket. Tickets may be purchased by calling Pat Moraytis at 412-221-9109.
