Catholic composers to perform with Loyola Chapel Choir

The Loyola College Chapel Choir will sing and play in a concert featuring Catholic songwriters and performers David Haas, Lori True and Paul Tate on Feb. 23.

The three composers are well-known in Catholic music, each having been published in major hymnals in the United States, said George Miller, the associate director of campus ministry and choir director at Loyola College in Maryland, Baltimore.

Concert-goers will be treated to the composers’ original pieces, some brand new.

“David (Haas) is premiering one piece at this concert,” said Mr. Miller. “It’s not in print yet.”
Lori True will also perform some pieces which are not in print at this time, added Mr. Miller.

Proceeds from the concert will help provide scholarships for and will benefit Music Ministry Alive, a national program started by Mr. Haas that helps educate high school and college students who serve the church as liturgical musicians.

“A number of the alums who have gone (to Music Ministry Alive) over the years will be performing with the chapel choir as well,” said Mr. Miller.

Tickets are $10 in advance and $12 at the door. Student tickets are $4 with I.D., and Loyola student tickets are $2.

Doors open at 7 p.m., and the concert begins at 7:30 p.m. in Alumni Memorial Chapel on Loyola’s campus.
