Thiel College’s Con Spirito Chamber Music Concert Series, which began in fall 2007, presents concerts each year, featuring top chamber music performers from around the world.
The series was created in honor of the late daughter of Dr. Glen Johnson H'88, Thiel College Board of Trustees chairman emeritus, and his wife, LaVonne, generous friends of the college. The home of the Con Spirito Chamber Music Concert Series is the David Johnson Memorial Chapel, dedicated in 2006 and named in honor of the Johnsons' late son.
