The Chatham Baroque has announced that it will relocate to the Pittsburgh Theological Seminary Campus in East Liberty/Highland Park.

In that way, the organization will have its offices, rehearsal space, and a performance venue all in one location, enabling the ensemble to centralize many activities.

“What first caught our attention about the PTS campus were the accessibility and remarkable acoustics of the Hicks Memorial Chapel, but it was the potential for cross-organizational collaboration with PTS and partnerships with surrounding schools, businesses, and agencies that really inspired us to pursue this opportunity. Though we will continue to hold our programs in a variety of locations, we couldn’t be any more excited about our new home-base,” said Chatham Baroque’s Executive Director Donna Goyak in an official press statement.

“Chatham Baroque will be a valued partner in the PTS community helping us to explore the intersection of faith and the arts,” said the President and Professor of Theological Formation for Ministry Rev. Dr. Asa J. Lee. “Music is an important part of our expression of faith. Many of the baroque pieces that make up the core of their music were composed in service to Christian liturgy. They will be a wonderful partner in helping our students understand the role of music, the arts, and liturgy in ministry.”
