WQED’S HORIZONS FEATURES PITTSBURGH GOSPEL CHOIR
PITTSBURGH – WQED’s Horizons showcases the work of the Pittsburgh Gospel Choir on Tuesday, April 26 at 7:30 pm on WQED-TV. Contributor Aradhna Dhanda, President of Leadership Pittsburgh, interviews Dr. Herbert V. R. P. Jones, Director of the Choir.
The Pittsburgh Gospel Choir (PGC) was founded in 2008 as Pittsburgh's first choral ensemble dedicated to the American gospel music tradition. Formed as a project of the River City Brass Band, the PGC is intended to catalyze connections among participants of all races, ethnicities and ages while acting as a conduit for the preservation of the rich history of gospel music through its performances of both traditional and new works in the genre.
Ms. Dhanda joins a list of contributors to WQED’s local programming lineup that includes Doug Oster, Harold Hayes, Dave Crawley, and Mike Clark.
“Aradhna is a great choice as a contributor to Horizons,” said Darryl Ford Williams, Vice President of Production at WQED. “Her work at Leadership Pittsburgh keeps her involved with many diverse community groups in the region, including business and arts organizations, which are a large part of Horizons’ coverage and viewership.”
Other segments that will appear on Horizons on April 26 are a story on the Royal Caribbean Restaurant in East Liberty and a piece on the restoration of the Crescent Apartments in Wilkinsburg, which are being restored to their former glory.
Horizons is produced by Minette Seate.
