Dear Friends,

Our next concert, on September 11th, marks the beginning of our 2016-2017 season! The musicians, staff, and I are thrilled with this opportunity to continue what we started, and to share this timeless music with an amazing city. Please check our events page and  subscribe to our mailing list for updates.

Personally, the impulse to discover new ways to reach people through music has driven my whole career. In fact, it made itself apparent at a rather early age! I grew up in Charleston, South Carolina, where my father was a county strings teacher. At one of his concerts, when I was a precocious three years old, I jumped out of my seat in the hall and ran onto the stage next to Dad, of course starting to lead myself. Now, I’m not sure if he’s ever really forgiven me, but it was in that moment that I realized the power music has to inspire; it’s precisely that joy that I, and every member of the Chamber Orchestra, strive to communicate in each of our performances.

We rely in large part on the generosity of our neighbors to realize that vision. Such contributions will allow us to present an entire season of programs, including some exiting collaborations with some of the finest soloists in Pittsburgh. We hope you will consider supporting these efforts by making a tax­‐deductible donation through Paypal – a link can be found at the bottom of this page – or our indiegogo.com page. Your generosity will be publicly acknowledged on our website and through a prominent note in our next program. Gifts of any amount ensure success in our continued efforts to both re-imagine the artistic landscape of Pittsburgh, and to share joy with our friends.

Yours sincerely,

ELsig
Edward Leonard
Founder and Artistic Director
