2016 - 2017 SEASON EVENTS
FINDING NEVERLAND
Benedum Center
October 18 - 23, 2016
Broadway's biggest new hit and the winner of Broadway.com's Audience Choice Award for Best Musical, this breathtaking smash captures the kid-at-heart, saysTIME Magazine. Directed by visionary Tony-winner Diane Paulus and based on the critically-acclaimed Academy Award-winning film starring Johnny Depp, FINDING NEVERLAND tells the incredible story behind one of the world's most beloved characters: Peter Pan. Playwright J.M. Barrie struggles to find inspiration until he meets four young brothers and their beautiful widowed mother. Spellbound by the boys' enchanting make-believe adventures, he sets out to write a play that will astound London theatergoers. With a little bit of pixie dust and a lot of faith, Barrie takes this monumental leap, leaving his old world behind for Neverland, where nothing is impossible and the wonder of childhood lasts forever. The magic of Barrie's classic tale springs spectacularly to life in this heartwarming theatrical event. FINDING NEVERLAND is far and away the best musical of the year! (NPR).

A CHRISTMAS STORY
Benedum Center
November 22 27, 2016
A CHRISTMAS STORY, THE MUSICAL chronicles young and bespectacled Ralphie Parker as he schemes his way toward the holiday gift of his dreams, an official Red Ryder Carbine Action 200-Shot Range Model Air Rifle (You'll shoot your eye out kid! ). An infamous leg lamp, outrageous pink bunny pajamas, a maniacal department store Santa, and a triple-dog dare to lick a freezing flagpole are just a few of the distractions that stand between Ralphie and his Christmas wish. Chock-full of delightful songs and splashy production numbers, A CHRISTMAS STORY, THE MUSICAL has proudly taken its place as a perennial holiday classic for the whole family. The New York Times writes I was dazzled. You'd have to have a Grinch-sized heart not to feel a smile spreading across your face. A CHRISTMAS STORY, THE MUSICAL premiered on Broadway in 2012 and was nominated for three Tony Awards including Best New Musical, Best Original Score, and Best Book of a Musical

January 31 February 5, 2017
Welcome to the ˜90s ” the 1590s ” long before the dawn of premium tickets, star casting and reminders to turn off your cell phones. Brothers Nick and Nigel Bottom are desperate to write a hit play but are stuck in the shadow of that Renaissance rock star known as The Bard. When a local soothsayer foretells that the future of theatre involves singing, dancing and acting at the same time, Nick and Nigel set out to write the world's very first MUSICAL! But amidst the scandalous excitement of Opening Night, the Bottom Brothers realize that reaching the top means being true to thine own self and all that jazz. With its heart on its ruffled sleeve and sequins in its soul, SOMETHING ROTTEN! is an uproarious dose of pure Broadway fun and an irresistible ode to musicals ” those dazzling creations that entertain us, inspire us, and remind us that everything's better with an exclamation point! From the director of Aladdin and the co-director of The Book of MormonSOMETHING ROTTEN! is Broadway's big, fat hit! (New York Post).

New Roving Pittsburgher Reviews!

Roving Pittsburgher Report, A MODERN OPERA GERTRUDE STEIN AND ALICE TOBIAS THE TALK OF PARIS

Pittsburgh has many jewels in its cultural crown. One of the brightest jewels is the Pittsburgh Opera.  The 77th season began  with the Pittsburgh premiere of Ricky Ian Gordon's 27.  Spotlighting larger than life novelist, poet, playwright, and Pittsburgh native Gertrude Stein and her partner Alice B. Toklas27 will delight you with Ricky Ian Gordon's "tuneful score" and Royce Vavrek's "quick-witted libretto." 

Roving Pittsburgher Report, Bridges of Madison County Harlequin Romance or Arthur and Guinevere? 

The Bridges of Madison County that opened at the Benedum in Pittsburgh last night has the steaminess of a Harlequin Romance Novel touched with tragic illusions that date back to stories like Lancelot and Guinevere and serenendipitous lovers trapped by a chance meeting between passion, reality and honor.From a slow background start the musical wends its way through the audience's emotions like a rollercoaster between comedy, lust, broken dreams and soulful duets.  Stripped to their private thoughts, even the men in the audience would have to admit that the show tugged at their hearts and returned them to a chance encounter, a furtive one night stand or a glimpse into "what might have been."

Roving Pittsburgher Report, Guys & Dolls, A Showcase of Talent at PPT 

When Pittsburgh Public Theater (PPT) produces a musical you are sure to be wowed.  This season, the American classic, Guys & Dolls will not disappoint.  An audience pleaser all around, Guys & Dolls is entertaining for both the musical maven as well as any theater novice.  Producing artistic director, the esteemed Ted Pappas, has covered all the bases to assure this performance is nothing less than stellar. Guys & Dolls is a must see.

Ben Davis, Captain von Trapp
BEN DAVIS (Broadway's Violet, A Little Night Music, La BohГme) will play Captain Georg von Trapp and MELODY BETTS will play The Mother Abbess with MERWIN FOARD as Max Detweiler, TERI HANSEN as Elsa Schraeder, DAN TRACY as Rolf and PAIGE SILVESTER as Liesl. The von Trapp children will be played by JEREMY MICHAEL LANUTI (Friedrich), MARIA SUZANNE KNASEL (Louisa), QUINN ERICKSON (Kurt), SVEA ELIZABETH JOHNSON (Brigitta), MACKENZIE CURRIE (Marta) and AUDREY BENNETT (Gretl).
THE SOUND OF MUSIC is also introducing Jack O'Brien's brand new discovery, KERSTIN ANDERSON as
Maria Rainer. A current student at Pace University, Ms. Anderson won the coveted role from hundreds who auditioned.  This is her first national tour.
Director O'Brien had this to say about his leading lady. In looking over a great American classic, like THE SOUND OF MUSIC, sometimes you stumble on something you wonder if anyone ever saw before.  For instance, I was privileged to actually see Mary Martin in the original production ” as I was myself just a junior at the University of Michigan.  She was a great star, and she was giving a ˜great star's' performance.  She was at the apex of her career, and she was both brilliant and 46 years old.  But in reading it privately, something caught my eye:  Maria is probably, as a postulant, no more than six or seven years older than Liesl!



 She may be many things ” a country lass, a climber-of-trees, a young renegade, but she is clearly NOT an established star!  How interesting!  I've always believed Maria was a ˜star-making' part, rather than the leading role we remember from the movies and our experience; so I went looking for someone with star-making magic.  And in through the audition door one day walked Kerstin Anderson, still studying at Pace University in New York.  She opened her mouth, she sang, and the tears welled up in my eyes.  If ever there were an enchanting young woman standing on the brink of discovery ” this was it!  And now, the discovery is about to be all of ours!  Please, as I do ” welcome her!
The ensemble includes Carey Rebecca Brown, Ronald L. Brown, CГitlГn Burke, Christopher Carl, Kyla Carter, Patton Chandler, Daniella Dalli, Elisabeth Evans, Donna Garner, Meghan Hales, Jenavene Hester, Adam Hill, Darren Matthias, Kelly McCormick, Julia Osborne, Andrea Ross, Brent Schindele, Jim Schubin and Lucas Schultz.

THE SOUND OF MUSIC features music by Richard Rodgers, lyrics by Oscar Hammerstein II, book by Howard Lindsay and Russel Crouse, suggested by The Trapp Family Singers by Maria Augusta Trapp. This new production is directed by Jack O'Brien (credits include: Hairspray, The Full Monty, Dirty Rotten Scoundrels, The Coast of Utopia), choreographed by Danny Mefford (Fun Home, The Bridges of Madison County and Bloody Bloody Andrew Jackson) and music supervision by Andy Einhorn (Bullets Over Broadway, Rodgers & Hammerstein's Cinderella, Brief Encounter, The Light in the Piazza). The design and production team is comprised of Douglas W. Schmidt, set design (Tony Award nominee: 42nd Street, Into the Woods); Jane Greenwood, costume design (2014 recipient of the Special Tony Award for Lifetime Achievement in the Theatre), Natasha Katz, lighting design (Five-time Tony Award winner: An American in Paris, Once, Aida, The Coast of Utopia, The Glass Menagerie) and Ken Travis, sound design (Aladdin, Newsies, Memphis). Casting by Telsey + Company/Rachel Hoffman, CSA.

"Do, Re, Mi"

According to director Jack O'Brien, THE SOUND OF MUSIC has been in our ears for decades, as it deserves to be. But it might be time to look once more, and more closely, at this remarkable work which, I feel, begins to reveal itself as deeper, richer, and more powerful than ever. It's no longer ˜your mother's' familiar SOUND OF MUSIC. We are tearing off the varnish of the past from one of the great glories of our theatergoing experience and making it fresh! This is an opportunity we've all longed to create!
Producer Beth Williams (Grove Entertainment) said, It's a great privilege to bring this beloved Rodgers & Hammerstein musical to theaters across North America. We hope that people of all ages will continue to fall in love with it for the first time, or all over again, and that it will truly become one of their ˜favorite things.' From our distinguished team led by the creative master Jack O'Brien, audiences can expect a truly magnificent production of THE SOUND OF MUSIC.
"Edelweiss"

In the words of Ted Chapin, President of Rodgers & Hammerstein, THE SOUND OF MUSICcontinues to be the world's most beloved musical.  When a major national tour was suggested, I not only agreed, but was willing to roll up my sleeves and do whatever I could to fashion a new stage production that would re-engage today's theatergoing public. The show was originally created for Broadway, and seeing it on stage only reinforces the power of the story and the score. And with Jack O'Brien at the directorial helm well, we simply couldn't do better. Landing somewhere between The Coast of Utopia and Hairspray (shows for which Jack won the Tony), his production is smart, focused, and surprising.  
THE SOUND OF MUSIC enjoyed extraordinary success as the first live television production of a musical in over 50 years when The Sound of Music Live! aired on NBC in December, 2013; and 2015 marked the 50th anniversary of the film version, which continues to be the most successful movie musical in history. The spirited, romantic and beloved musical story of Maria and the Von Trapp Family will once again thrill audiences with such songs as My Favorite Things, Do-Re-Mi, Climb Ev'ry Mountain, Edelweiss and the title song.

27
A modern Opera
Gertrude Stein and Alice Tobias
The Talk of Paris
Music by Ricky Ian Gordon, Libertto by Royce Varvrek
2425 Liberty Avenue, Pittsburgh, PA 15222
 Presented by the Pittsburgh Opera
Pittsburgh Opera Headquarters
 Reviewer:  JoAnn R. Forrester, Empress of Biz,  

Pittsburgh has many jewels in its cultural crown. One of the brightest jewels is the Pittsburgh Opera.
Gertrude Stein and Alice Toklas
The 77th season began with the Pittsburgh premiere of 
Ricky Ian Gordon's 27.  Spotlighting larger than life novelist, poet, playwright, and Pittsburgh native Gertrude Stein and her partner Alice B. Toklas27 will delight you with Ricky Ian Gordon's "tuneful score" and Royce Vavrek's "quick-witted libretto." 
 The production of 27 was held at the Pittsburgh Opera Headquarters, located at 2425 Liberty Avenue in the Strip District.  This is an amazing well designed renovated space that is the ˜ training ground for the next generation of Opera Stars.  The building and the resident artist program alone deserves its own review.  What a sparkling jewel in our cultural scene crown. 
I was mesmerized by the production of 27 , the life and times of Gertrude Stein and Alice Tobias and their influence on the development of 20th century arts.  I thoroughly enjoyed score of Mr.  Gordon, evoking jazz, foxtrot and musical theater. 
 The opera 27 is in five acts and portrays the life of Gertrude Stein and Tobias from 1910 to 1946.  It demonstrates their influence and impact on the world of art through their stimulating art challenging Parisian saloon.   It was fascinating to watch Gertrude and Alice living in pre War World I  Paris creating a saloon that hosted the emerging 20th century painters, Picasso and Henri Matisse . 

Gertrude and Alice created their own world excluding those who did not accept them including   Gertrude Stein brother, Leo Stein.  Who left 27 rue de Fluerus, when Alice Tobias became a permanent part of the household.  Gertrude and Leo never spoke again. 

World War I comes and goes with all its hardships and sacrifices.  After World War I Gertrude and Alice host emerging writers of the Lost Generation such as Hemingway, Fitzgerald and the photographer Man Ray.  This period sandwiched in between two World Wars is lived at a frenetic pace with all are trying to make up for the upheaval and destruction of the past war.  Meantime the Great Depression is on horizon and the drums of war start to beat softly and then louder and louder until they thunder and burst on the world stage and War II erupts. 




 World War II brought a drastic change to Gertrude Stein.  Her goal for her and Alice to be safe causes her to do what is necessary to be safe and survive occupied France.  After the war the end come quickly for guilt consumed Gertrude Stein.  The last act features Alice Tobias and Picasso as they say goodbye, pack and send Picasso's picture of Gertrude Stein to the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York. 


I thoroughly enjoyed the resident artists as they delivered this Pittsburgh premiere of 27 I was impressed with Laurel Seerdjian (mezzo-soprano) portrayal of Gertrude Stein and Adelaide Boedecker (soprano) as Alice.  Their duets together conveyed great warmth, affection and devotion to one another.  The men, Adam Bonanni, (tenor) Matthew Sciollin (bass baritone) and Brian Tobias (baritone) were versatile and in good voice in their many faceted roles.  The Pittsburgh Opera's Residence artist program is a boon to Pittsburgh and to Opera.   All those in this production of 27 are on the path to artistic success.   

It's a good bet for your money to support and enjoy the Pittsburgh opera.  If you have never attended the opera, you might start with The Barber of Seville, opening on April 2.

Pittsburgh CLO and PNC Broadway in Pittsburgh
Announce the Pittsburgh Premiere of An American in Paris




Most Awarded Musical of 2015 to Play the Benedum Center, May 30 - June 11, 2017
Pittsburgh, PA · March 1, 2016  AN AMERICAN IN PARIS, the most awarded new musical of 2015 and winner of four Tony Awards, will play the Benedum Center for a two-week engagement May 30-June 11, 2017. The first national tour of AN AMERICAN IN PARIS will be presented as part of the Pittsburgh CLO 2017 Summer Season and the PNC Broadway in Pittsburgh 2016-17 series.
We created the world premiere of the new musical AN AMERICAN IN PARIS in Paris and then on Broadway, with the ultimate destination being our Pittsburgh CLO subscribers," said Executive Producer Van Kaplan. Half of our sizeable cast made their Broadway debut in our show, including our Director/Choreographer Christopher Wheeldon, which for me is Pittsburgh CLO at its best: creating professional opportunities for young artists in new musicals that become tomorrow's revivals. Our desire for this show was of course the same as it for all of our subscription productions, to provide our audiences with the unique thrill of satisfyingly big-musicals without having to go to New York. They're in for a treat with this one.  
The Pittsburgh Cultural Trust is pleased to collaborate with the Pittsburgh CLO to bring this truly beautiful production to Pittsburgh, shared Marc Fleming, Vice President of Marketing & Communications for the Pittsburgh Cultural Trust.  AN AMERICAN IN PARIS is filled with the music and romance set to a captivating story that will delight Pittsburgh audiences.
Inspired by the Academy-Award winning film, AN AMERICAN IN PARIS is the romantic story about an American soldier, a mysterious French girl and an indomitable European city, each yearning for a new beginning in the aftermath of war. 

Directed and choreographed by 2015 Tony Award-winner Christopher Wheeldon, this production of AN AMERICAN IN PARIS brings this classic tale to the stage for the first time, with music and lyrics by George and Ira Gershwin and book by Craig Lucas. AN AMERICAN IN PARIS won four 2015 Tony Awards; four Drama Desk Awards; four Outer Critics Circle Awards including Best Musical; the Drama League Award for Best Musical; three Fred and Adele Astaire Awards; and two Theatre World Awards. 
The creative team is comprised of Tony Award-winners Bob Crowley (sets and costumes), Natasha Katz (lighting), Jon Weston (sound), 59 Productions (projections) with the musical score adapted, arranged and supervised by Rob Fisher, orchestrations by Christopher Austin, dance arrangements by Sam Davis, musical supervision by Todd Ellison with additional orchestrations by Don Sebesky and Bill Elliott. Casting is by Telsey + Company/Rachel Hoffman, C.S.A.  
The score of AN AMERICAN IN PARIS includes the songs "I Got Rhythm," "Liza," "'S Wonderful," "But Not For Me," "I'll Build a Stairway to Paradise," and orchestral music including "Concerto in F," "Second Prelude," "Second Rhapsody/Cuban Overture" and "An American In Paris." 
The production opened to widespread critical acclaim at the Palace Theatre on Broadway on April 12, 2015 after its world premiere at the ThГГctre du ChГctelet in Paris November 22, 2014-January 4, 2015.

Bridges of Madison County 

Harlequin Romance or Arthur and Guinevere?



The Bridges of Madison County that opened at the Benedum in Pittsburgh last night has the steaminess of a Harlequin Romance Novel touched with tragic illusions that date back to stories like Lancelot and Guinevere and serenendipitous lovers trapped by a chance meeting between passion, reality and honor.From a slow background start the musical wends its way through the audience's emotions like a rollercoaster between comedy, lust, broken dreams and soulful duets.  Stripped to their private thoughts, even the men in the audience would have to admit that the show tugged at their hearts and returned them to a chance encounter, a furtive one night stand or a glimpse into "what might have been."



This two time Tony Award-winning Broadway musical by composer Robert James Waller has evolved from a bestselling book by Pulitzer Prize Winner Marsha Norman to a movie starring Meryl Streep and Clint Eastwood to a Broadway musical is the stuff of housewives fantasies and romantic tragedies with local color, historic flashbacks and comic relief episodes.   

The Daily News hails as one of Broadway's best scores in the last decade. It's easy to see why.  Although there are no "Oklahoma" catchy tunes that stick in your head they certainly will rap you in their magic while you are there.  There is one show stopper at the end though and both I and my theater partner wished we could have given him a standing ovation for it. With his rendition of "When I'm Gone" Charlie (David Hess) goes from mealy mouthed comic episodes to leading man status and that is one song that you wish was just a bit longer.

The performance of Francesca ( Elizabeth Stanley) was of course stellar even though as a granddaughter of immigrant Italians on both sides of the family I found her Italian accent a bit wanting, but her voice could transport you to the outer limits of heaven.  The real star of the show though is Robert (Andrew Samonsky).  His "The World Inside a Frame" truly creates a picture.  Also the chemistry between he and Francesca did not need shirtless scenes to be steamy and electric even from row P in the orchestra.

Norman also has created a pair of comical neighbors, Marge and Charlie (Mary Callanan and David Hess). Marge spies on Francesca and her hippie Photographer guest through binoculars and tries to engage her passive husband Charlie jealous speculation; their banter is humorous and finally the results are homespun and touching.  Marge also has a huge musical moment along with the Radio Singers in "Get Closer."  While part of the stage is "filled" with Francesca and Robert dancing Marge has her own vicarious experience. For the chick flick or chick theater followers Robert with his superior height to Francesca has an enticing way of wrapping his tall body around Francesca.

The great thing about this show is that fantasies and reality both are all part of life and the interjections of all types of music from country to almost operatic and blues with athletic dancing and movement of scenery really made this show come to life in the theater.  From housewife to construction worker, business women, traveler or handyman everyone can relate to that one moment that "might have been."


 Don't let this be a "might have done" in your life but DO SEE  "The Bridges of Madison County playing at the Benedum on 7th St in Pittsburgh through Sunday March 13, 2016.  Tickets start at $26.00.

Roving Pittsburgher Report, The Nutcracker, A Holiday Tradition That's New Every Year 

A nutcracker is a tool designed to open nuts by cracking their shells. But truly in the theater at the family holiday tradition of "The Nutcracker" presented by the Pittsburgh Ballet Theater, no one cares with the presentation of The Nutcracker during the holiday season of 2015, the Pittsburgh Ballet definitely cracked the code of entertainment for young and old and sheer delight for all ages.

Guys & Dolls:  A Showcase of Talent at PPT
By Good News Reporter, Megan Grabowski

When Pittsburgh Public Theater (PPT) produces a musical you are sure to be wowed.  This season, the American classic, Guys & Dolls will not disappoint.  An audience pleaser all around, Guys & Dolls is entertaining for both the musical maven as well as any theater novice.  Producing artistic director, the esteemed Ted Pappas, has covered all the bases to assure this performance is nothing less than stellar. Guys & Dolls is a must see.

One of America's most beloved musicals, Guys & Dolls takes place in mid-century bustling New York City.  Small time gambler Nathan Detroit (Joel Hurt Jones) is scrambling  to find a location for the next floating crap game, while dodging Lt. Brannigan (Tony Bingham) and  Miss Adelaide, (Kirsten Wyatt) leading performer at the Hot Box night club and his fiancГe of fourteen years.   With help from fellow hoodlums Nicely, Nicely Johnson (Quinn Patrick Shannon), Rusty Charlie (Joe Jackson) and Benny Southstreet (Gavan Pamer), Detroit attempts to arrange the game at the Biltmore Garage.  Owner Joey Biltmore (Daniel Krell) wants a $1000.00 deposit before he agrees and Detroit is broke.   He decides to earn the $1000.00 by making a wager with Sky Masterson (Charlie Brady) a man who will bet on anything. Detroit bets Masterson that he can't convince the beautiful and pious, Sarah Brown, Sergeant of Save- a- Soul Mission, to take a trip with him to Havana, Cuba.  Masterson, accepts the challenge. What follows is a quest for love and redemption depicted through an award winning score and clever choreography.
 
Charlie Brady and Doreen Burns

The four leading roles, Nathan Detroit, Sky Masterson, Sarah Brown and Miss Adelaide boast notable credits ranging from live theater,  film and television, national as well as local theater.  The leading ladies are exactly what you would expect from a PPT production, refined and skilled in their craft.  Burn's operatic vocal range is resounding and at times nearly drowns out her male counterparts.  Kudos to Wyatt whose New York accent is on spot. She manages to maintain it throughout the entire performance, something I have witnessed many talented men and women struggle with on stage.   Masterson, a ladies' man, can schmooze a woman and roll a set of dice, sing and dance too.  His rendition of Luck Be a Lady was a highlight of the show but my heart melted listening to Miss Adelaide and Nathan Detroit sing the duet, Sue Me , it was sweet and harmonic.
Although there isn't one single cast member who disappoints, the supporting cast and ensemble are especially brilliant. The beautiful Hot Box girls, as Farmerettes, in A Bushel and a Peck , are just the right amount of risquГ.  Sarah's grandfather, Arvide Abernathy (Larry John Meyers) sings More I Cannot Wish You , a sentimental tune that warms the heart and Nicely, Nicely Johnson and the ensemble receive a roar of applause after Sit Down, Your Rockin' the Boat . 


  The O'Reilly Theater has a mid-sized stage and the choreography is tailored to the space.  Personally, when I see a strong male cast I look forward to powerful leaps and turns.  The dancing in Guys and Dolls doesn't lack these attributes but there were moments when I expected  larger.  The dancing was most engaging during Havana and The Crapshooters Dance . 

Guys & Dolls boasts bright and cheery costumes, an uplifting musical score, energetic dancing and engaging acting.  The show runs through February 28 at The O'Reilly Theater in Pittsburgh's Cultural District.

Wilkommen to "CABARET" AT THE BENEDUM CENTER

An unbiased review by Mr. and Mrs. CardiologyGood News Review by Dr. Santosh and Mrs. Sunita Pandit



The air was electric as we waited for the show to begin!  This was the first time in our simple career of attending shows in the Cultural District that we really noticed the audience's feel of anticipation and awe of what was to come.  My husband,Dr. Santosh Pandit or Mr. Cardiology, as
he has been dubbed, got busy right away using the opera glasses to watch the unusual activity on the stage. There were actors limbering up and actually doing cartwheels and splits! I can understand his curiosity because the gals on stage looked from our seats in row Q as though they were wearing nothing!  They were all wearing skimpy clothing in flesh colors I noticed the stage had a second story where it was filled from end to end with musicians or were they the actors ohhhh they were doing both!



The swell of the audience's energy climaxed as the lights dimmed.  The lead, Emcee Randy Harrison came out from behind a door and started to sing.  Oh but I could not understand his words. I wanted to adjust the acoustics so that I could lower the music and hear him clearly.  It was worse for my husband as he does not understand French!  But to my delight, the loud music became a minor detraction as the actors outdid themselves in producing their heart felt performances.



Pittsburgh is in for a real treat with this rendition of Cabaret.  For those like Mr. Cardiology who did not grow up in America do a little reading so you can follow the story better and that way you can concentrate on appreciating the performances.  Well worth more than the price of the tickets My favorite was Fraulein Schneider Shannon Cochran singing ˜So What' with Sally Andrea Goss singing ˜Don't Tell Mama' a close second!  Randy Harrison as the Emcee was actually like a band leader in his ability to keep the energy level at peak for the entire performance made me think everyone else was making sure they kept up! BRAVO!

To all the cast and crew my Hats Off to YOU! Congratulations and Thank You for coming to Pittsburgh and allowing us to ˜Get Away' from our daily routine

Artist Biographies
All hailing from Butler, Pennsylvania, The Armadillos began with three guys: Austin Vanasdale, Matt Rychorcewicz, and Eric Rodgers. The group started experimenting with acoustic instruments and songs they'd heard on old-time records in 2007. After relocating to Pittsburgh, The Armadillos worked to develop an original, upbeat sound built on Appalachian and old-time roots. Upright bass was added to the mix, with the help of bassist Chuck Shreve, and Sheila Liming lent accordion and female vocals. The group released their first, self-titled album in 2010. Since then, they have opened shows with touring acts: The Two Man Gentleman Band, O'Death, and Shotgun Party. The Armadillos added bassist Josh Dukes to their lineup in 2011, and in December of that year, were voted Best Alt-Country/Alt-Folk Band by Pittsburgh City Paper readers, and featured in the City Paper's annual Best of Pittsburgh issue.


The Hills and The Rivers is a Pittsburgh-based folk band centered around the Hill siblings and a fluid yet stable collective of musicians. They blend the gritty sounds of the street with sophisticated lyrics and delicate harmonies while finding a balance between indie, folk, punk and pop. Their releases include: Split with Cousin Boneless & Black Bear Mute (June 2014) and The World (September 2014).

A native of northern Indiana, Emily Rodgers began writing music in 2003 amidst a move to Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania where she now resides. In 2008, Rodgers signed to Misra Records; that same year, she performed at the SXSW Music Festival. Rodgers has shared stages with artists including: Magnolia Electric Company, Great Lake Swimmers, Nina Nastasia, Thalia Zedek Band, Hayden, Horse Feathers and Jolie Holland.

A major catalytic force in the city, the Pittsburgh Cultural Trust is a unique model of how public-private partnerships can reinvent a city with authenticity, innovation and creativity. Using the arts as an economic catalyst, the Pittsburgh Cultural Trust has holistically created a world-renowned Cultural District that is revitalizing the city, improving the regional economy and enhancing Pittsburgh's quality of life.

About the Artists
American conductor FRANCESCO LECCE-CHONG has worked with orchestras around the world including engagements with the Atlanta Symphony Orchestra, Toronto Symphony Orchestra, Indianapolis Symphony Orchestra, San Diego Symphony and Hong Kong Philharmonic Orchestra. With the start of the 2015-2016 season, he begins his new position as assistant conductor of the Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra after serving four years as associate conductor of the Milwaukee Symphony Orchestra (MSO). He will return to the MSO throughout the season for several guest engagements and will make his opera debut with the Florentine Opera. He also will continue as associate conductor of the Grand Teton Music Festival.

Lecce-Chong has earned a growing reputation and critical acclaim for dynamic, forceful performances, garnering national distinction, including the Solti Foundation Career Assistance Award and The Presser Foundation Music Award. He has also been featured in master classes with Bernard Haitink, David Zinman, David Robertson and Christopher Seaman, while working with the St. Louis Symphony, National Arts Center Orchestra and the Tonhalle Orchestra ZГrich.
As a trained pianist and composer, Lecce-Chong embraces innovative programming, champions the work of new composers and supports arts education. While working with the MSO, he curated and presented the works of both active and lesser-known composers, including two works commissioned by the orchestra, as well as two U.S. premieres. He also helped create the first MSO Composer Institute, providing performance opportunities for young American composers. Lecce-Chong has complemented his programming with a strong commitment to arts education for all ages. In Milwaukee, he provided artistic leadership for the MSO's nationally lauded Arts in Community Education program ” one of the largest arts integration programs in the country ” and he continues to be a frequent guest speaker for arts organizations around the country.
Lecce-Chong is a native of Boulder, Colorado, where he began conducting at the age of 16. He is a graduate of the Mannes College of Music, where he received his Bachelor of Music degree with honors in piano and orchestral conducting. Lecce-Chong also holds a diploma from the Curtis Institute of Music, where he studied as a Martin and Sarah Taylor Fellow with Otto-Werner Mueller. He has been mentored by many world-renowned conductors, including Edo de Waart and Donald Runnicles, with whom he continues to maintain a close working relationship.
KATY SHACKLETON WILLIAMS has performed extensively in the Pittsburgh area with the Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra, Pittsburgh Opera, Mendelssohn Choir, Pittsburgh Opera Theater, River City Brass Band and Pittsburgh Concert Chorale. She was a featured soloist for several Pittsburgh Symphony Holiday Pops concert series and made her BNY Mellon Grand Classics debut in September 2005 with Mendelssohn's A Midsummer Night's Dream. She was a soloist in the Heinz Hall performance of The Lord of the Rings and has been the special guest vocalist for many of the Pittsburgh Symphony's Fiddlesticks and Tiny Tots children's concerts.

Under the artistic direction of Peter Kope and Michele de la Reza, ATTACK THEATRE, now celebrating its 21st season, combines contemporary dance, live music and multimedia to create wickedly entertaining stage productions (Pittsburgh City Paper). Attack Theatre has performed and toured extensively throughout the United States, Europe and Asia including for the Avignon Festival, the 7th Next Wave Dance Festival/Japan, Indonesia Arts Festival, Monaco Danses Forum, the Spoleto Festival and the Broadway production of Squonk. A sought after collaborator, Attack Theatre has worked extensively with theater companies, in museums, performed in more than operas (including Carmen, Rigoletto, Eugene Onegin, Aida, Dead Man Walking and Samson and Dalila), and danced with the Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra on numerous productions including a reimagining of Stravinsky's L'Histoire du Soldat with
Pinchas Zuckerman. Known for their "audacious athleticism," (Dance Magazine), Attack Theatre has received Best Dance Performance (Pittsburgh Post-Gazette) and Best Dance Company (Pittsburgh City Paper) for multiple years, and the prestigious National Dance Project Touring Award (NEFA). In addition to their performance and touring schedule, Attack Theatre conducts extensive arts education residencies throughout the region for 9,000 students and teachers annually through master classes, residencies, in-school performances and workshops for teachers.

The PITTSBURGH SYMPHONY ORCHESTRA, celebrating 120 years of music in 2016, is credited with a rich history of the world's finest conductors and musicians, and a strong commitment to the Pittsburgh region and its citizens. Past music directors have included Fritz Reiner (1938-1948), William Steinberg (1952-1976), Andre Previn (1976-1984), Lorin Maazel (1984-1996) and Mariss Jansons (1995-2004).  This tradition of outstanding international music directors was furthered in fall 2008, when Austrian conductor Manfred Honeck became music director of the Pittsburgh Symphony. The orchestra has been at the forefront of championing new American works, and gave the first performance of Leonard Bernstein's Symphony No. 1 Jeremiah in 1944 and John Adams' Short Ride in a Fast Machine in 1986. The Pittsburgh Symphony has a long and illustrious history in the areas of recordings and radio concerts. As early as 1936, the Pittsburgh Symphony broadcast on the airwaves coast-to-coast and in the late 1970s it made the ground breaking PBS series Previn and the Pittsburgh. The orchestra has received increased national attention since 1982 through network radio broadcasts on Public Radio International, produced by Classical WQED-FM 89.3, made possible by the musicians of the Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra. With a long and distinguished history of touring both domestically and overseas since 1900”including 36 international tours to Europe, the Far East and South America”the Pittsburgh Symphony continues to be critically acclaimed as one of the world's greatest orchestras.
