We heard the Pitt Chapel Choir for their Christmas Concert. The Choir consists of 50 students. They sang songs in four or five different languages. The quality was excellent.

I always try to visit Heinz Chapel when I am in Pittsburgh. It is a unique and gorgeous chapel. After years of visiting it and admiring it, my daughter was fortunate enough to get married there. It is also in a beautiful setting.

If your looking to have a small wedding ceremony, but want that wow factor, Heinz Chapel is the best place for it. It's where I will be having mine, thats for sure. Many of my friends have married here and it was always perfect. From what I understand they are easy to get along with as well.

The church is amazing. Our daughter wanted to have her wedding there, but no AC, and she got married in July. It is really something to see though.

Unfortunately we missed tour time, but this chapel is beautiful from the outside, and we even got a glimpse of the inside. We hope to be back!

It feels somewhat "off" to see secular figures depicted in stained glass. But with sunlight streaming through, the windows are truly breathtaking.

The stained glass windows were gorgeous, the atmosphere was quiet and hushed (I went on a weekday). Definitely worth a stop in.

Crashed a wedding rehearsal and enjoyed the pipe organ music. Beautiful architecture. Look for the spiral stairs.

Stopped in during weekday morning, only ones there. Spectacular architecture and stained glass windows, with a helpful brochure at entrance. Try to attend a service or organ concert.
