Saint Vincent College Professor of Music Fr. Stephen Concordia, O.S.B., right, directs Saint Vincent College students Jonathon Jacobeen, left, and Brian Myers, center, who will perform with the Saint Vincent Schola Gregoriana in three performances at Heinz Hall with the Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra on October 12, 13 and 14. The principal conductor of the orchestra, Manfred Honeck, invited Saint Vincent for the second time to provide a Gregorian chant schola to sing as part of Honeck’s reading of the Requiem Mass of Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart. Entitled by Maestro Honeck “Requiem Mass for Mozart,” the performances include the Requiem in its entirety, together with other sacred music of Mozart, and will incorporate Scriptural readings, biographical readings from the letters of Mozart, and a Gregorian chant schola. The Saint Vincent Schola Gregoriana is composed of 21 singers and includes Saint Vincent Benedictine monks and area residents. Mr. Jacobeen is a junior philosophy major and music minor from Manassas, Virginia. Mr. Myers, a senior music major studying organ, is from Saint Marys, Pennsylvania.
