A free concert of choral music will be performed on Saturday, July 20, at 7:30 p.m. Central Time in the Saint Meinrad Archabbey Church, St. Meinrad, IN.

A special pilgrimage choir from Our Lady of Mt. Carmel Parish in Carmel, IN, will present a free concert of sacred choral music, old and new. The "summer edition" of the choir features 30 singers, singing works of W.A. Mozart, William Billings, Dan Forrest, Moses Hogan, and two stunning "Ave Maria" works by Arcadelt and Biebl.

Dr. Alan Jordan, an American Guild of Organists associate, will be featured on the Goulding and Wood organ, and the choir will be directed by Rex Benjamin Rund, an alumnus of Saint Meinrad College.

The choir has sung at Mass with Pope Emeritus Benedict at St. Peter's in Rome, and at cathedrals and basilicas in Salzburg, Assisi, Fatima, Santiago de Compostela, Burgos, León and Lourdes.

The program is free and open to the public. Parking is available in the Guest House and student parking lots. For more information, contact Mary Jeanne Schumacher during business hours at (812) 357-6501.
