Mendelssohn Choir to perform at St. Kilian

CRANBERRY TWP — Those interested in the Mendelssohn Choir of Pittsburgh have a chance to see the oldest continually operating Pittsburgh arts organization free of charge Saturday in Cranberry Township.

The Mendelssohn Choir will present “The Promise of Light” at St. Kilian Catholic Church, 7076 Franklin Road, at 7:30 p.m. Saturday as part of the choir’s six-performance, free-of-charge tour around the Pittsburgh area.

Matthew Mehaffey, the choir’s Robert Page music director, said the choir’s first set of performances in 22 months will make the group more accessible to those who ordinarily may not have been able to attend Mendelssohn’s annual December performance with the Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra at Heinz Hall in the city.

“All of the venues we’ve selected have very beautiful acoustics for singing, so I think the audience is going to be enveloped into the sound of the Mendelssohn Choir,” Mehaffey added.

Ticket information is available on the choir’s website,
