  • Is it possible to receive these as a weekly email newsletter? I think that would be cool

    • Hi Andrea! Yes – you can get daily or weekly updates here  the weekly updates might be a little off date wise – because sometimes we post about things right before the event.  But for the most part it should be good.  You can also follow us on Facebook and Twitter @IheartPGH.

  • Since Phipps was mentioned, I’d like to put in a plug for a Sunday Dec 9 evening performance of music in the holiday spirit that I and four other recorder players will be giving 6-8 PM. I started being part of this last year. The kids love it! We have a lot of nice new musical selections for this year.

    No way! Where has this blog been all my life?! I’m a Pittsburgh blogger- only been here a little over a year and still getting acquainted with the city. I’m constantly looking for ways to get involved. This is perfect!
