Dr. Susan Medley – Festival of Choirs

Dr. Susan Medley joins Jim Cunningham to discuss the  annual Festival of Choirs this year in the Carnegie Hall foyer. Along the way she shares some thoughts about women conductors as seen in the film Tar with Cate Blanchett and growing diversity on high school choirs now recovering from the pandemic loss of members. The event takes place Sunday, November 5, 2023, at 4:00pm.  The Pittsburgh Concert Chorale is joined by area high schools Allderdice and Carrick, Burrell, and Quaker Valley in this special celebration of choral music!  The concert features a wide variety of choral repertoire as each choir presents an individual set. The grand finale brings all on stage together to perform the world premiere of this year’s Carol and Robert Woody Choral Commission, composed by Shawn Kirchner.
