Pittsburgh Symphony Musicians Take Charge!


Ahoy!

The management of the Pittsburgh Symphony has threatened its musicians with a lock out, attempting to impose a pay cut which would reduce them to a second tier orchestra, and making noise about hiring substitute players.

THE MEMBERS OF THE ORCHESTRA HAVE CHOSEN TO PERFORM, ANYWAY!

Since Friday night’s concert was to have been CMU night (Carnegie – Mellon), Carnegie-Mellon University has graciously provided their Kresge Theater as a venue, and the musicians will perform Friday, after all – FREE, to all public, including those who had already purchased tickets to hear the originally scheduled concert at Heinz Hall.

The concert begins at 8:30pm. this Friday, October 7th, at Kresge. God knows where that is, but I’ll find it.

I’m so proud of these musicians. This is just a brilliant solution – bring your audience with you!!

We are there.

    1. Yes! I had hoped to go, but the Hurricane monitor occupied most of my day, and now I think I’ll stay home, work on my own concert music, and take in their concert via live streaming. Last night, there was a live streamed recital at my old university, and the audio was remarkably good!
