Fourth Annual PSO Musicians Day of Music

By Rhian Kenny

On Tuesday, September 17, 2019, more than 55 PSO musicians will present 19 different performances in locations throughout Pittsburgh. The Musicians of the Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra started the Day of Music four years ago to say thank you to our Pittsburgh community by bringing music to people where they are.

At the Steel City T Station, for instance, commuters on their way to work may find themselves listening to violinist Kristina Yoder and her husband bassist Peter Guild at 8:30am, and/or on their way home to violinists Ken Johnston and Andrew Fuller at 4:30pm.

Repeat venues from last year include Pittsburgh International Airport, the Allegheny County Courthouse and DeFer coffeehouse in the strip. Exciting new venues include The Tower at PNC Plaza and Longwood at Oakmont.

We believe that music is for everyone and can brighten every life. In addition to the performances for travelers, shoppers, and commuters, we will play at two soup kitchens, hospitals for children and veterans, and senior living centers.

We always come away from this day with comments from passers by that remind us how beneficial music is in our daily lives. For a full listing of venues, please check our Home Page or Facebook page.
