Junior Mendelssohn Choir 2020 Season Postponed
After many discussions to ascertain the best and safest way for the Junior Mendelssohn program to continue, while also keeping the existing scientific data on COVID-19’s spread as it directly relates to singing foremost in our decision-making process, we have made the extraordinarily difficult decision to postpone the Junior Mendelssohn Choir’s 2020 season. Please know that this choice was not made lightly, but with the students’ and faculty’s health and safety in mind.
2019 Performance Season
The Junior Mendelssohn Choir of Pittsburgh, under the direction of Music Director Dr. Caron Daley, present their annual fall concert, From Stranger to Neighbor. This program explores the ways in which our global world is present in our local communities and neighborhoods, while celebrating how people from diverse backgrounds can become friends through common experience and respect for one another. The movement, from “stranger to neighbor” is a metaphor for how we can promote justice and reconciliation in our times. In the case of the JMCP, this concert also celebrates how students from across the region come together through choral singing to build a musical community!
The program has strong Pittsburgh connections, with an arrangement of songs from the beloved television show Mr. Rogers’ Neighborhood, (arrangement by JMCP founder Robert Page), and a Hebrew round written for the victims of the Tree of Life shooting. A diversity of musical traditions is represented, including extended vocal techniques!
