Friday, Feb. 21 at 8 p.m.  |  Sunday, Feb. 23 at 2:30 p.m.  |  Heinz Hall

The Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra and Victor de Sabata Guest Conductor Gianandrea Noseda join with multi-award winning pianist, Jean-Efflam Bavouzet, for a BNY Mellon Grand Classics program infused with the power of hope, comedy and tragedy. The program runs Feb. 21 and Feb. 23 at Heinz Hall.

Noseda will lead the Pittsburgh Symphony in a dynamic presentation of three beautifully moving pieces. The concert begins with the exotic, witty and vibrantly scored Symphonic Fragments No. 1 and 2 from Alfredo Casella’s La Donna Serpente. Bavouzet will then perform Sergei Prokofiev’s dauntingly complex Concerto No. 5. In the second half, the symphony will perform Robert Schumann’s Symphony No. 2, a remarkably uplifting piece given the composer’s struggle with illness and depression.

Manufacturing's Competitive Edge
From: Innovation Works
Manufacturers today face many challenges operating in the global economy: more competition, increased technical competence of those competitors, cost pressures, market expectations and the availability of a skilled work force. The marketplace has evolved to expect high product quality, rapid introduction of enhanced product functions and quick delivery on orders. The challenge for regional manufacturers is to stay one step ahead, continue to innovate, become more productive and improve quality. These manufacturers understand that leadership in innovation and technology are crucial to their future competitiveness.

We at Innovation Works (IW) understand that as well, so we created the Innovation Adoption Program (IAP) to provide regional manufacturing companies up to $50,000 to help develop cutting-edge technologies that will accelerate their progress and enable them to gain a competitive advantage in local and global markets. The IAP links manufacturers in Southwestern Pennsylvania with the region's Centers of Excellence, giving the companies access to highly specialized scientists and engineers for R&D projects, including product engineering and design, robotic assembly, machinery design, rapid prototyping or even an industrial analysis and overhaul of existing manufacturing processes.

How a Family Joined the Pittsburgh Global Game Jam and Won the Google Prize

What Happens When You Bring Gamers Together for 48-hours of Intense, Sleepless Game Development?

The Pittsburgh Game Jam got underway at CMU’s ETC on Friday with the announcement of this year’s secret theme: “We don’t see things as they are, we see them as we are.”

Gardiner made the weekend a family affair, forming a team with his wife and three sons, the eldest of whom is seven. The boys developed a storyline about two boys who live on a farm and mistakenly release all the chickens from the chicken coop. From this premise, “Chicken Chase” was born, with the boys contributing on design and game obstacles.

Gardiner developed the software and his wife worked on the music. The game won the Google Award for Technical Achievement; an iPad App will be out in two weeks.

It was cold outside, but inside the Byham Theater hearts and souls were warmed by the tight harmonies, high-kicking energy, and inspiring message of Ladysmith Black Mambazo. The four time Grammy Award winning, singing group from South Africa shared not only their beautiful music and rich culture, but an uplifting message of love, peace, and harmony.

Ladysmith Black Mambazo was formed in the early 1960’s by Joseph Shabalala with the mission of preserving South Africa’s musical and cultural heritages. Maintaining that mission is also a family tradition. Five of the ten current singers are 2nd or 3rd generation family members. And their newest album Always With Us, is a tribute to Nellie Shabalala, Joseph’s late wife and matriarch of the family.

A Review of the PSO’s January 31st 2014 Grand Classics Concert

Though the opening tune was one that is frequently associated with vampires emerging from their caskets or spooky Halloween scenes, it was no scary start to the Grand Classics concert Friday night at Heinz Hall. Led by conductor and music director Manfred Honeck, the Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra played works of three great composers Bach, Beethoven, and Brahms.

The PSO opened with Bach’s “Toccata and Fugue in D minor” for organ, transcribed for orchestra by Leopold Stokowski. Complete with the bombastic but still eerie beginning, the wall of sound was impressive. But it was the intricacy of crazy quick fugal sequences, originally meant for nimble keyboard hands, that was a true test and showcase of precision.
