Pittsburghers, reeling from disappointments with our local sports teams, have found a winner with the Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra, which is bringing two trophies home to the ‘Burgh, the first time it has done so since 1993.

Bruno Mars was the big winner at Sunday night’s 60th annual Grammy Awards, but two of the night’s awards are coming home to Pittsburgh.

Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra musicians won both awards for which they were nominated, including Best Orchestral Performance and Best Engineered Classical Album. PSO won the best orchestral performance award for the “Shostakovich 5/Barber Adagio CD.” Mark Donahue won for the engineering of the album.

Proud Pittsburghers congratulated the orchestra across social media.
 

Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra last won a Grammy in 1993 for "Best Classical Instrumental Solo with Orchestra" for its performance of "Tchaikovsky: Variations on a Rococo Theme." 

Congratulations to all the 2018 winners.
