All Events | Starting today

City of Champions
Meet a Pittsburgh sports celebrity at each show as the River City Brass celebrates the music of the '70s; the songs that were played when the Steelers and Pirates were sports dynasties. You'll hear favorite team anthems remixed with hits by rock icons Chicago, The Rolling Stones, Phil Collins, The Carpenters, and ABBA, aloing with Don McLean's American Pie and Survivor's Eye of the Tiger.

Erin Schmura, soprano
St. Bernard Parish Cantor Erin Schmura gives a lively and inspiring vocal program including Samuel Barber's Hermit Songs, Italian folk songs adapted by Luciano Berio, and French and German cabaret songs presented in partial fulfillment of her Masters of Music Degree from CMU. Reception follows. Free admission.

The Mousetrap
A murder at Monkswell Manor. Who will be next? Colonel Metcalf, the neurotic Christopher Wren, the unpleasant Mrs. Boyle, the mysterious Miss Casewell, the unexpected guest Mr. Paravicini, or the young couple Moliie and Giles Ralston? As everyone accuses each other, can you trap the murderer before Sgt. Trotter does or before someone else dies? Richard Keitel directs this Agatha Christie whodunit.

Disney's Fantasia
The PSO provides live accompaniment to scenes from Walt Disney's original Fantasia (1940) and Disney's Fantasia 2000 -- with excerpts from Beethoven's Symphony Nos. 5 and 6, Tchaikovsky's Nutcracker, Debussy's Clair de Lune and Stravinsky's Firebird suite. The music of Ponchielli, Dukas and Elgar is also illustrated in these special cinematic concerts conducted by Ward Stare.

Pianist Yeeha Chiu & Friends
Pianist Yeeha Chiu joins colleagues Olga Ostrakovna, soprano; Michael Nieland, violin; and Mark Chiu Sutton, viola, in chamber music by Robert Schumann, Reynaldo Hahn, Richard Strauss, and Arturo Buzzi-Peccia.

Music of the Balkans
Renaissance City Winds will play works from the Balkans. Croation music will be featured in honor of Millvale's St. Nicholas Church and its stunning murals by Maxo Vanko. Join the Winds for a post-concert reception, and view the current contemporary art exhibit.

August Wilson's Fences
Artistic director Mark Clayton Southers will direct August Wilson's Pulitzer Prize-winning masterpiece Fences, to reconfirm their place among the foremost interpreters of Pittsburgh's great playwright. Set in the 1950s, Fences evokes the early rumblings of the civil rights movement. The central character is Troy Maxson, a middle-aged resident of the Hill District, who struggles to accept the generational changes that allowed his son to succeed in ways he never could.

Rolling Hills, Satanic Mills: The British Passion for Landscape
From the National Mueum of Wales, this exhibition traces the development of landscape painting in Britain through the Industrial Revolution and the eras of Romanticism, Impressionism, and Modernism, to the postmodern and post-inductrial imagery of today. More than 60 works, including major oil paintings, watercolors, drawings and photographs offer fresh insights into evolving tastes.

Sing On! Concentio
The Concentio choir will premiere Tears No More by Pittsburgh composer Devin Arrington, commissioned in honor of the school's 10th anniversary, and sings Eleanor Daley's Rose Trilogy and Paul Halley's Freedom Trilogy. The Chamber Choir performs I Never Saw Another Butterfly by Charles Davidson, and Pergolesi's Stabat Mater with original choreography performed by Hannah Barnard.

Midsummer (a play with songs)
Midsummer in Edinburgh turns into a weekend of wild abandon when divorce lawyer Helena meets small-time crook Bob in a basement wine bar. With a wad of ill-gotten cash in hand and a local gangster on their heels, the unlikely pair goes on an alcohol- and adventure-filled romp, discovering that there are second chances at life—and love. Tracy Brigden directs.

Noon-time Recital
TMC's season finale includes Beethoven's 12 Variations for Piano & Cello, Op. 66; Brahms's Violin Sonata No. 1; Toccata in F Major by Loeilett, both books of Debussy's "Images," and harp works by Elias-Avars and Henriette Renie. Artists include pianists Linda Morgan Ellison, Janet Stivanson, and Michael Cerveris; Kim Weiner, violin; Charlotta Ross, cello; and Chelsea Lane, harp.
