Luther Hymn Festival @ Heinz Memorial Chapel
Apr 29 @ 7:00 pm – 8:30 pm

Calling on all Lutherans to share in God’s grace through the gift of music that moves the soul. “Dear Christians, One and All Rejoice – A Martin Luther Hymn Festival” will be held at 7:00 pm on Sunday, April 29, 2018 in Heinz Chapel at the University of Pittsburgh.

As a continuation of celebrating the 500th anniversary of the Lutheran Reformation, the Festival will be celebrated among the three major Lutheran denominations in western Pennsylvania (ELCA, LCMS and NALC). Lutheran leaders have invited their congregations to the gathering to sing hymns composed by Luther.

Luther was both a great hymn writer and musician. A music committee, chaired by The Rev. Roger Keller (St. Luke’s, Saxonburg, PA – NALC), has selected six of Luther’s hymns to be sung at the Festival. Invitations are being sent to choir directors representing Lutheran congregations in various communities across western Pennsylvania.  All music leaders interested in singing for the Festival should contact The Rev. Cyril Hurnyak at revcyril@aol.com. The Pittsburgh Area Compline Choir also will participate.

Pastors, church leaders, councils, and secretaries/administrators:  Please inform your congregation of the April 29th event via announcements and publications.  This will be a great day for everyone to enjoy God’s gift of music in the light of the Lutheran Reformation!
