Holy Trinity Cathedral Choir is turning 50

The Holy Trinity Cathedral Choir is turning 50 and what better way than to celebrate this milestone with an entire weekend of celebration as only HTC and Pittsburgh can! We are thrilled to have as our special guests the SSS Ravanica of Detroit and are even more excited to have a number of alumni returning to join in the fun of 50 years of celebration.

The weekend kicks off with our Welcome Dinner/Dance and Choir Reunion Rager (say that three times fast in Serbian) on Friday, October 19th at our home away from home, the American Serbian Club in South Side. Doors open at 7:00pm and the club will be rockin’ with another good friend of the choir, Djuro Klipa and his kickin’ kolo orchestra providing the songs and dances that you want to hear!
