Tallis Scholars Return to Heinz Hall to Perform with Pittsburgh Symphony Brass
Dec. 10, 2014  |  7:30 PM  |  Heinz Hall 
Take a trip back in time this holiday season with the Pittsburgh Symphony Brass and leading Renaissance vocal ensemble the Tallis Scholars on Wednesday, December 10 at 7:30 p.m. in Heinz Hall.  The Tallis Scholars recently completed a very successful world tour with 99 events in 80 different venues throughout 16 countries. In December, they return to Heinz Hall to fill it with a variety of inspiring music for the Christmas season, including another outstanding performance of Allegri’s Miserere. This concert also brings a special present to audiences — for the first time ever, the Tallis Scholars will close the concert in a shared performance of a newly commissioned work with the Pittsburgh Symphony Brass, who also will perform selections from their Christmas albums with the virtuosic flare for which they are known.

The Tallis Scholars were founded in 1973 by their director, Peter Phillips. Through their recordings and concert performances, they have established themselves as the leading exponents of Renaissance sacred music throughout the world. Phillips has worked with the ensemble to create, through good tuning and blend, the purity and clarity of sound which he feels best serve the Renaissance repertoire, allowing every detail of the musical lines to be heard. The Tallis Scholars perform in both sacred and secular venues, usually giving around 70 concerts each year across the globe. In 2013, the group celebrated their 40th anniversary with a World Tour performing 99 events in 80 venues in 16 countries and travelling sufficient air-miles to circumnavigate the globe four times. They kicked off the year with a spectacular concert in St Paul’s Cathedral, London, including a performance of Thomas Tallis’ 40-part motet Spem in alium and the world premieres of works written specially for them by Gabriel Jackson and Eric Whitacre. Their new recording of the Missa Gloria tibi Trinitas by the 16th Century Tudor composer, John Taverner, was released on the exact anniversary of their first concert in 1973 and enjoyed six weeks at number one in the UK Specialist Classical Album Chart.

Calliope Presents The Duhks
Saturday, Oct. 18, 2014  |  7:30 PM  |  Carnegie Lecture Hall (Oakland)
No band epitomizes the polyethnic strands of modern folk music better than The Duhks. Since forming in Winnipeg in 2001 The Duhks have created a dynamic blend of old-timey, French Canadian and Celtic music punched up with shades of blues, soul and driving Afro Cuban rhythms that leaves festival crowds on their feet. Over the course of 4 critically-acclaimed albums the band has earned Juno and Grammy awards and nominations and have played a significant role in the neo-folk revival.

On Beyond the Blue The Duhks are in the best form of their 13 year career. Rejuvenated by a two year hiatus and energized by the return of vocalist Jessee Havey and the addition of new members, fiddler Rosie Newton, drummer/percussionist Kevin Garcia, and guitarist/bouzouki player Colin Savoie-Levac, The Duhks founder Leonard Podolak found an amazing pallet of inspiration for the new project. “All of the people who have been in the band over the years, including non-touring founding members Tania Elizabeth and Jordan McConnell (who both appear on the album) have had a hand in shaping our sound and direction. The goal with the new record was to draw on everything we’ve learned over the years and everything we know about where we want to take the music now and create something as fresh, exciting and forward thinking as possible.” Toward that end, the band turned to the rising production team of Mike + Ruthy (Mike Merenda and Ruth Unger of The Mammals), who brought a progressive approach to production that was still firmly rooted in the traditions of folk music.  Tickets are  $39 / $23 student rush w/ ID, (prices include handling fee).

Each BNY Mellon Grand Classics concert is part of the Explore & Engage program, which includes pre-concert talks, exhibits, display boards and interactive activities that illuminate the music, composers and the time in which they created.

We are proud to present a vibrant program of works, all commissioned by Aspen Santa Fe Ballet.”  “What I find so truly marvelous about Aspen Santa Fe Ballet is the artistic commitment to working with new, dynamic, and incredibly gifted choreographers,” shared Paul Organisak, Executive Director of the Pittsburgh Dance Council and Vice President of Programming for the Pittsburgh Cultural Trust. “Each program, including the one our Pittsburgh audiences will see, features some of the most exciting new contemporary ballets being created today by the remarkable dancers of this exquisite company.”

Square None, the company’s first commission by Norbert De La Cruz III, is an ambitious and expansive piece that explores themes of youth and naiveté. The Aspen Times commented, “It felt like a thrill, like a discovery of something new.”  Beautiful Mistake, a stunning piece by Spanish choreographer Cayetano Soto, expertly exhibits the gorgeous physicality of this incredible company through dynamic partnering.  The newest work, Heart(s)pace by company favorite Nicolo Fonte, gives audiences a distinctively unique experience as the stage glows with exuberant light and color. This abstract piece explores the complexities of human emotion, specifically highlighting the depths of love and compassion, and illuminated with the importance of touch.

Closing the Gap: 50 Years Seeking Equal Pay
LIVE One-Hour Special Hosted by CNBC’s Sharon Epperson
Thursday, Oct. 2  |  8 PM on WQED-TV
Fifty years after President Kennedy signed the Equal Pay Act, women are still only making, on average, 77 cents for every dollar earned by men. In that time span the current wage gap has improved at a rate of less than half a cent per year...and if it continues at that pace, the wage gap won’t close completely until the year 2053.

Premiering LIVE on Thursday, October 2 at 8 p.m. on WQED-TV, Closing the Gap:  50 Years Seeking Equal Pay is a one-hour talk show special produced by WQED in partnership with YWCA Greater Pittsburgh. Hosted by CNBC’s Sharon Epperson, Closing the Gap:  50 Years Seeking Equal Pay will unpack hotly debated statistics and move beyond highly politicized – and overly simplified – talking points in order to explore the many factors that contribute to the wage gap, and strategies to overcome them.

Guests include the namesake of the 2009 Fair Pay Act, Lilly Ledbetter along with national experts representing some of the most iconic women’s organizations in the nation including:
• Terry O'Neill,  President, National Organization for Women (NOW);
• Linda Hallman, Executive Director and CEO, American Association of University Women (AAUW);
• Teresa Younger, CEO,  Ms. Foundation for Women;
• Dr. Dara Richardson-Heron, CEO, YWCA-USA.

Closing the Gap will also stream online for FREE on October 2 through a new multiplatform application from PBS called “ovee.” Viewers nationwide may participate by registering here. Ayana Ledford, Founding Executive Director for PROGRESS at Carnegie Mellon University (whose mission is to improve society by empowering all women and girls through the art of negotiation) will moderate the discussion on ovee.Questions will be taken from the studio and ovee audiences, as well those on social media using hashtag #womenwagegap.
