The Music Graduate Student Organization at the University of Pittsburgh is pleased to announce its first annual conference, to be held on Saturday, February 4, 2017

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?

A $5,000 scholarship will be awarded to a full-time undergraduate student who will be enrolled at the University of Pittsburgh in September of 2017.  The scholarship is divided between the fall and spring terms. The scholarship is awarded on the basis of performing ability as demonstrated by an audition video file or CD.

The first official Music at Pitt event of 2017 takes place on January 28, but that doesn’t mean there isn’t music happening here. Both undergrads and grad students have concerts coming up this week and we hope you can come see them.

Ethnomusicology graduate student Danielle Maggio’s review of Shana L. Redmond’s Anthem: Social Movements and the Sound of Solidarity in the African Diaspora has been published in the Fall 2016 edition of The Bulletin of the Society for American Music.

The Heinz Chapel Choir Holiday Concerts are sold out, but you can still hear these beautiful voices when WQED streams the concert live. Click on the "Listen Live" link at 8 p.m. on December 9th to hear this annual holiday highlight.

Update: Thanks to your generous support, Heinz Chapel Choir has surpassed their original goal, but you can still donate. The more money is raise the more members can get scholarship help!
