President's August Message

A  Message from Our President

I want to start off with some great news about the PSO that I heard from Melia:
"I am thrilled to share that our latest release with Reference (Strauss Elektra and Rosenkavalier disc) has won Record of the Year by Opus Magazine for the 2nd year in a row!  Beautiful review in link below:

This is an incredible honor!  Congratulations to Manfred and the Musicians of the PSO!"

A lot has been going on behind the scenes at the Pittsburgh Symphony Association this summer.  A very full calendar of events has been planned.  Click on the PSA Dates 2017-2018 tab above to see what is coming up.  These events require a lot of planning to get off of the ground and I am very grateful for a talented and energetic PSA board who continue to do a wonderful job.  We are all music lovers and want to keep the PSO alive and well here in Pittsburgh while having fun raising money and building audiences.

You will notice some upgrades to this website.  Maburl Schober, Communications VP, has been working very hard to get it looking better, easier to navigate and reflect our mission and goals more effectively.  The biggest change is the use of forms that you can fill out right online.  I hope that many of you will choose to use this when making your online payments for membership, event reservations and donations.    The Fall Luncheon reservation form is available now.

And this "Blog" space is also a new addition. Let Maburl know at if you have some content that you think should be showcased here.

Enjoy the rest of your summer (by attending the wonderful PSO summer concerts, I hope) and I will see you at the Fall Luncheon on September 14th!
