Members of the Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra will hit the road Tuesday for their second annual day of free music.
The musicians will perform at 13 venues beginning at 8:30 a.m. at WQED studios in Oakland and ending at 7 p.m. at Canterbury Place in Lawrenceville. Other stops include the Allegheny County Courthouse, Pittsburgh International Airport and the Hillman Cancer Center.
"It is important that we show Pittsburgh how much we love our city and appreciate its support, and give back whenever we can,” says Day of Music organizer and PSO flutist Rhian Kenny.
Last year’s Day of Music event occurred even though the musicians were in the midst of a 55-day strike.
"Last year's Day of Music was so important on so many levels that it had to become a tradition," says Kenny. “When we play for you, we all become closer to each other.”
