The Mendelssohn Choir of Pittsburgh and Music Director Matthew Mehaffey open the 2017-2018 performance season with an evening of music that reminds us that no matter how crazy the world gets, music possesses the power to move us to a place of calm and repose.  Music by classical masters and contemporary favorites from Mozart to McCartney highlight this reflective concert, including Bernstein, Whitacre, Haydn, Ames, Walker, Hackman, and Gjeilo. In the midst of our frenetic lives, we are reminded that music is a balm to the world.
