UPDATE: THE JANUARY 25th SESSON IS POSTPONED. WE WILL ANNOUNCE A NEW DATE SHORTLY.

The Mendelssohn Choir is thrilled to announce that Global Choral Traditions is returning—with an exciting twist! Join us virtually or in-person at City of Asylum to explore the rich traditions of global choral music with local artists. All sessions are free and open to everyone—no singing experience required. Participants will learn about specific cultural song traditions as they sing songs from within those traditions. No previous singing experience is required. Registration for both virtual and in-person participation is required and there is limited capacity for the in-person events so register early! 

All live events will be held at the Alphabet City Stage at City of Asylum, 40 W North Ave., Pittsburgh, PA 15212.

Watch a video introducing the series.
