With the renovation of the Memorial Church during Fall Term, the Harvard University Choir stretched their voices into new venues across the campus. Auditions and rehearsals were in Paine Hall, the Fall Concert at Sanders Theatre and the Carol Services took place in St. Paul Church.

But after the extended tour of Harvard Square, the University Choir will be back home inside the historic sanctuary Sunday (March 5) celebrating the reopening of Memorial Church.

“It is a joy to be making music once again in the beautiful surroundings of the Memorial Church,” said Edward Elwyn Jones, Gund University Organist and Choir Master. “The performance will be especially thrilling for our new members, who are yet to experience a concert within its walls.”
