A Personal Thank You from Maestro Honeck

A PSA tradition that began with the first Symphony Splendor Holiday Tour of Homes is that Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra Music Director Manfred Honeck meets privately with the tour chair, co-chairs, sponsors and homeowners to present his special thanks, along with custom books of photographs of the tour, to the homeowners who opened their residences for the event. Symphony Splendor is the primary fundraising event by which PSA raises money annually for PSO. Cathy Trombetta again chaired this year's event, along with co-chairs Neill Stouffer and Judy Woffington.

One More PSO360 Concert Remaining!

From CEO Melia Tourangeau's email for last week:

  • Just last evening Manny Ax and Musicians of the PSO came together for our fourth sold-out PSO360 concert of the season, A Musical Valentine.  It was an extraordinary night of outstanding performances featuring Lorna McGhee (Flute), Cynthia Koledo DeAlmeida (Oboe), Michael Rusinek (Clarinet), Nancy Goeres (Bassoon), William Caballero (Horn), Alexi Kenney and Christopher Wu (Violins), Tatjana Mead Chamis (Viola), and Anne Martindale Williams (Cello), plus Musicians of the PSO as a chamber orchestra, together with Manny.  Bravo and many thanks to all for a beautiful and memorable evening!
