We're pleased to share this!  On December 9th, PBS presented a program of choral performances to lift spirits and delight audiences during the holiday season. Click on the link below to access PBS archives of that presentation which featured an interactive Q&A featuring three prominent conductors and directors, including Lehigh University's Steven Sametz, discussing the vibrant choral arts found in Northampton County. 

The event is available on the PBS39 website to watch anytime,

This screening is a showcase of the best choral music that Northampton County has to offer. The piece features segments from Lehigh University’s Vespers concert presented by the Lehigh University Choral Arts in historic Packer Memorial Chapel. It will also feature the Moravian Choral Arts department performing their Holiday Vespers.
As a special treat, the Bach Choir of Bethlehem will present a few holiday favorites as excerpts from their 2020 holiday concert. After the show, stay tuned for a panel discussion with the three people who have been crucial in the direction of choral arts in the Lehigh Valley for decades!
