River City Brass
In 1981, something special happened – a musical renaissance took place in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. Under the baton of conductor Robert Bernat, the River City Brass took to the Carnegie Music Hall stage for its inaugural concert on November 21. It was an evening of musical excellence and determination – determination to bring about the revival of the grass-roots tradition of the American brass band.
Pittsburgh Civic Orchestra
The Pittsburgh Civic Orchestra began in 1958 when some amateur musicians formed an ensemble known as the Bethel Park Orchestra. When the orchestra settled into Carnegie for rehearsals and concerts, it adopted the name The Carnegie Symphony Orchestra. In 1983 the name was changed to The Pittsburgh Civic Orchestra (PCO) to better reflect its membership and community involvement.
The orchestra has over 60 volunteer musicians who are dedicated to providing quality music at a reasonable cost to the families of Southwest Pennsylvania. Students may attend concerts free of charge.
Town Hall South
Town Hall South is a philanthropic organization dedicated to bringing nationally and internationally acclaimed lecturers to the South Hills of Pittsburgh.
