Led by Guest Concertmaster Alexi Kenney, Front Row: The PSO Virtual Experience continues with Part 2 of a two-part episode, Originators and Disruptors. As an homage to this year's 250th anniversary of Beethoven's birth, part 2 brings together the musicians with modern American composers (Libby Larsen, Gary Schocker and Charles Rochester Young) and a Beethoven orchestration by Music Director Manfred Honeck in a salute to a bouquet of Pittsburgh pathbreakers who defied their times and boundaries: Rachel Carson (environmentalist and writer), Martha Graham (choreographer), Thaddeus Mosley (sculptor), Fred Rogers (television creator) and Andy Warhol (multi-media artist).
