VoiceGivers Choir performance

Holy Family Institute will host a live choir concert in its Emsworth chapel at 7 p.m. Feb. 29. The concert will be produced and performed by VoiceGivers Choir, an organization founded in 2019 that aims to raise awareness of social issues in the Pittsburgh region through music.

Artistic Director Joe Stuligross chose music that reflects upon the needs and experiences of children who have been separated from their families. “We present music that evokes the horrific trauma of separation while highlighting the important work of Holy Family in finding reconciliation,” Stuligross said.

“Holy Family Institute’s mission is to restore hope and transform lives in our community and we believe that the arts have an important place in that healing process,” Holy Family Institute’s CEO Sister Linda Yankoski said in a release.

A full Catholic mass will precede the concert at 5:30 p.m. in the chapel, free for any members of the community who would like to attend.

The Sewickley Query Club will meet 7-9 p.m. Feb. 24 at the Sewickley Library Community Room (upstairs). Topics include:

• Ludwig van Beethoven and the Romantic Era – Lynne Schneider

Australian wildlife fundraiser a success

On Jan. 26, Sewickley’s Ramp ‘N Rize – along with a number of other Pittsburgh-regional exercise studios – collected money to benefit Australian wildlife victimized by the devastating fires. The total amount raised by more than 35 studios was $14,800, which will be matched by the Tull Family Foundation.
