The Pittsburgh Compline Choir has been singing compline, an ancient prayer service of the church stemming from life in monasteries, for over twenty-five years. Compline is an integral part of our ministry, being prayed every Sunday evening at 8:00pm in Heinz Chapel.

Our choir is an ecumenical choir open to students and community members alike. Our director Alastair Stout plans music from a wide range of eras. It is common to hear Gregorian chant and modern choral music in the same service. Visit their page to learn more about them. Support them with a direct donation here.
