Easter music bridges East, West

JOHNSTOWN — Musical Easter traditions will be celebrated at a local former church.

“East Meets West: A Musical Journey” will close this season of the Grand Halle Performance Series at 7 p.m. Friday at the Grand Halle on Broad Street in the Cambria City section of Johns­­town, the former Immaculate Conception Roman Catholic Church, at 306 Broad St.

Chris McAllister, co-director of Greater Johns­town Community Chorus, said the focus of the program will be music from the celebration of western and Eastern Orthodox Easter.

The chorus will perform with its regular accompanist, Jeff Hornick, on piano and Bryan Lohr on organ.

Lohr, who performed for the series in the fall, also will play some solos on the organ.

McAllister will share directing duties with the chorus’ co-director, Mari Grace Lingenfelter.

“The concert is set up in traditional Mass order,” McAllister said. “It will be set up in two halves with an intermission.”

Batter Bake Shop will provide refreshments.

Kim Rauch, program director for the series, said the season has been a success and received a great response from the public.

“We were able to offer such a variety of programs from organ music and holiday programming to choral music,” Rauch said. “I’m already in the planning stages for next year’s season, hoping to include an instrumental concert, Halloween program, a holiday carol program, another silent movie program and something for young people.”

“The Johnstown community has supported the series with attendance at each of the programs,

and I hope we can provide professional and interesting musical programs for the community in our 2013-14 season.”
