8 Degree Core

The 6°: Video Production

Thanks to the THOUSANDS of you that have joined us each week for Thursday Night at the Rite! That connection between our Brothers during this time is so important. For the next number of weeks, we will present...


This week's livestream party will feature...

The modern 8°
Solomon Ascending

Thursday, July 23
7:00 pm (ET)

Usually known as Intendant of the Building, the 8°received a modern makeover by the Valley of Pittsburgh and premiered on the Valley stage in 2018 as Solomon Ascending.

The degree was adapted by Brothers Todd Ballenger, Rodney Boyce, Bob Dunkle, Dave Morgans, and PJ Roup. The setting pf King David's court is changed to the boardroom where David presides as CEO. The degree features modern dress, multimedia integration, a guru, Instagram photos, and an exquisitely detailed hardwood set on loan from CCAC South Campus.

With this production, the Valley of Pittsburgh also became the first Valley to ever simulcast a degree live. Brothers in the Valley of Williamsport watched a three-camera live feed of the degree as part of their reunion.
When the children of Israel encounter a rough and dangerous journey through the desert, they rebel against Moses and God.

Philosophy: The degree reminds us that each honor we receive requires attention to a particular duty.
Core Values: Service, Integrity, & Reverence for God.

We'll also be featuring an encore presentation of...
The 17°
Knight of the East and West

The degree dramatizes a picture of human failure, and social and moral behavior. The book of life is sealed.

Philosophy: We must seek truth in our way of life and should learn from, and avoid, repeating the errors of the past.
Core Values: Reverence for God & Service.

We can’t meet in person, but we can still share a terrific evening together! Looking forward to seeing you online on July 23.
