Huff family featured in annual piano and voice concert

It is only appropriate that the final Tyrone summer concert on Sunday, August 20 features a family whose name is synonymous with this community.
The Reverend Norman Huff and his wife Anna Mae have been an integral part of the Tyrone community since their arrival in 1978. So engrained is the image of this couple and their family as Tyrone natives that many people do not realize that they grew up in other communities. Norman is originally from Lewistown and Anna Mae from the Lancaster region. Originally meeting as students at Lycoming College, the newlyweds began life together in Washington, D.C. where Reverend Huff completed seminary. The Huffs will be celebrating their fifty-second wedding anniversary this month.
The Tyrone connection began in 1978 when Reverend Huff accepted a position with The Church of the Good Shepherd. A love of music was key to his ministry as well as to the life of Norman and Anna Mae’s four children. This legacy of song is what will be celebrated on August 20 at 7 p.m. in the Lutheran Church on Logan Avenue.
The Piano and Voice program will include a wide range of material from classical to spiritual; Broadway to contemporary Christian; piano solos and vocal duets. Performing with Norman and Anna Mae will be their daughter Debbie Huff Estright, current director of the Allegheny Chorale. Debbie will be joined in a vocal selection by her daughter Emily and accompanied by her son, Zachary, on the cello. Zachary will also be featured in a classical cello solo. Lindsay Huff, a granddaughter, will offer a musical tribute while Susan Huff Daly will perform several piano selections.
The Piano and Voice Concert is sponsored by the Allegheny Chorale and made possible by a grant from the Pennsylvania Council on the Arts, a state agency, the National Endowment for the Arts, a federal agency, and Tyrone Borough.
The program is free of charge. For additional information, contact the Arts Line office at 684-ART2.
