In honor of Women’s History Month, we invite you to join musicians of the Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra for a program celebrating female artists.

Facilitated by conductor and educator Christine Hestwood, this evening program entitled Inspiration and Tenacity will explore the unique journeys of four women. The program will also highlight the world premiere of the Tuba Concerto by Grammy Award and Pulitzer Prize-winning composer Jennifer Higdon in anticipation of the PSO performance at Heinz Hall on March 16th & 18th.

The program will feature performances by PSO members Victoria Luperi, clarinet, and Rebecca Cherian, trombone. Also ARThouse’s Vanessa German and PEN/Fusion Emerging Writers Prize-winner Adriana E. Ramírez will complement the evening with readings responding to the issues of the day.

PSO @ COA is a new collaboration which explores the creative intersection of music, art, and spoken word at Alphabet City. The Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra, in partnership with the City of Asylum, has created a series of five events in the 2017-18 season that will employ and reflect the expertise and experiences of the artists of these two innovative groups. Themes and content have been jointly created to incorporate composers, musicians, poets, writers, and artists from Pittsburgh and around the globe. Hosted by PSO Associate Conductors, each session ties into a theme on a Pittsburgh Symphony BNY Mellon Grand Classical performance and attendees will receive ticket discounts.

Attendance is limited to 140 people at each event, so mark your calendar for these intimate behind-the-scenes performances:
