Women’s Choral Festival Returns to FPCE
Sunday, November 8
The FPCE Music Ministry is pleased to once again host the regional Women’s Choral Festival in our sanctuary this month. Last year’s event was very successful, filling the pews with singers and audience members, and filling the church with beautiful music.
This festival began as an outreach event by the University of Pittsburgh Women’s Choral Ensemble in an attempt to get college & university ensembles sharing music with each other. At the time, it was held at Heinz Chapel on the Pitt campus. Over the years, it has expanded to become a celebration of all types of women’s vocal ensembles, including high school and community choirs. It has been held at Pitt, Seton Hill University, and now for the second year at FPCE as part of our Music Ministry’s Concert Series. (Incidentally, we’d like to expand the series to include more than this festival and the ESO concert. Share your ideas!)
Participating in this year are the following groups: Duquesne University Pappert Women’s Chorale, University of Pittsburgh Women’s Choral Ensemble, Czarica Milica Serbian Women’s Choir, Belle Voci community choir, and the North Hills High School Women’s Choir. We hope you’ll join us for this free event!
