Outside Heinz Hall

From CEO Melia Tourangeau's weekly newsletter:

·        As we look forward to a new year of Heinz Hall concerts and community outreach, the Musicians are incredibly proud to look back on the achievements of 2018.  We all know about the 2 Grammy wins and three new Grammy nominations, but here are some numbers you may not know about: 
o   $13,000 raised by our 2nd annual Musicians of Steel 5k race in September, with all proceeds going to support the PSO Musicians Care Fund, a non-profit created to support area school music programs. 
o   $13,000 in grants to 12 different schools through our Fund, enabling them to purchase new instruments, repair existing ones, and introduce more than 600 area children to live orchestral music by providing transportation to the PSO Schooltime concerts.
o   18 performances during our 3rd Day of Music in places as diverse as the Steel Plaza T Station, the V.A Hospitals, Allegheny County Courthouse, or the Hillman Cancer Center. 
o   141,594 pounds of rescued food and 80 performances delivered to 94 different nonprofit organizations in 33 communities across our region through our Body & Soul partnership with 412 Food Rescue. 

Here’s to 2019 and the numbers it will bring!
