Syracuse University Hendricks Chapel Choir Performs in Remembrance of Pan Am Flight 103 Lockerbie Bombing Victims at Tundergarth Church in Lockerbie, Scotland

Syracuse University Hendricks Chapel Choir

On Sunday, May 21, 2023, Tundergarth Kirks Trust welcomed Syracuse University’s Hendricks Chapel Choir for a special remembrance concert. To commemorate the 35 Syracuse University students who were killed in the bombing of Pan Am Flight 103, 35 members of the Chapel Choir performed for the congregation in Tundergarth Church and later joined the University’s Wind Ensemble performance in Lockerbie Town Hall.

This service and concert, which was supported by the Pan Am 103 Lockerbie Legacy foundation, was a chance to honour all 270 victims, including 11 Lockerbie residents, who lost their lives in the terrorist attack on December 21, 1988.

This year marks the 35th anniversary of the bombing, and the visit further strengthened the bond that has formed between Syracuse University and Lockerbie over the last three decades.

Reverend Brian Konkol, Dean of Hendrick’s Chapel, encapsulated the occasion during his opening address and reflection about “this never-ending love story…. which is still evidenced among all present today.”
