UPDATE: John Goldsmith Memorial Service live stream begins at 11 a.m.

Please join us as we remember John Goldsmith's life and legacy. The Heinz Chapel Choir will perform as a fitting tribute to their longtime director and colleagues and friends will share remembrances.

We are deeply saddened to report the passing of John Goldsmith on Thursday, February 2. John joined the Music Department faculty in 1989 and served for a quarter century as the beloved director of the Heinz Chapel Choir and teacher of musicianship.  He was the advisor for undergraduate music majors for many years.

Singing Valentines have been a tradition of the Heinz Chapel Choir for years. Have a special someone who deserves a special gift this Valentine's day? Or maybe a treasured friend that you're thinking of and want to show how much they mean to you?
