All Events | Starting Monday, May 26, 2014

Noises Off
When Michale Frayn's brilliant Noises Off begins, a troupe of English actors is rehearsing the sex comedy Nothing On. As we eavesdrop, the director explains his theatrical philosophy: "Bang you're on. Bang you've said it. Bang you're off." If only things would go that smoothly. But with these thespians, including the dim-witted starlet, the method actor without motivation, and the leading lady on her last legs, it's total chaos and non-stop laughter.

Mozart's The Magic Flute
The Magic Flute is a whimsical, fantastical tale of two men who must face obstacles of magic and mystery to find their true loves. This fully-staged production with a cast and chorus of more than 60 local singers is accompanied by an orchestra of more than 25 local musicians and will be performed in English. The celesta that will be played is the one that was used for "Mr. Rogers' Neighborhood."

Singin' in the Rain
In silent movies, Don Lockwood and Lina Lamont are a hot item, but behind the scenes things aren't always as they appear on the big screen! Meanwhile, Lina's squeaky voice might be the end of her career in "talking pictures" without the help of a talented young actress to do the talking and singing for her. This extraordinary score includes: "Singin' in the Rain," "Make 'Em Laugh" and "Good Mornin'."

The Sound of Music Gala
PYSO annual fundraising gala includes cocktails, Hors d'Oeuvres, and a full-course dinner, silent and live auctions, and a tour preview concert including music by Smetana and Rimsky-Korsakov as well as selections from "The Sound of Music." Proceeds will benefit PYSO's scholarship fund and 2014 concert tour of central Europe concluding in Salzburg, Austria. Special guests include Jim Cunningham from WQED and David Newell from Mister Rogers' Neighborhood.

Vivaldi's Four Seasons
Korean violin prodigy Ye-Eun Choi, a protege of violin superstar Anne-Sophie Mutter, performs Vivaldi's The Four Seasons. The four concerti of this popular Baroque work represent spring, summer, autumn and winter. For the program's second half, conductor Nicholas McGegan presents musical gems from the classical period by Mozart and Haydn.

Francesco Attesti, piano
Italian pianist Francesco Attesti performs regularly in internationally prestigious concert halls and music festivals including Philharmonia Hall of Saint Petersburg, Tchaikovsky Conservatory of Moscow, Mozarteum of Salzburg, Philharmonie Essen, International Piano Festival of Warsaw, etc.. Concert proceeds will benefit ShelterBox disaster relief, the Zelienople Rotary Club and The Strand Theater.

Small Prints, Big Artists: From the Renaissance to Baroque
Small Prints, Big Artists presents more than 200 masterworks from the museum’s collection of nearly 9,000 prints. The intimately scaled woodcuts, engravings, and etchings reveal the development of printmaking as a true art form. Due to their fragility, many of these prints have not been on view in decades.
