Pittsburgh has a vibrant cultural arts community! We are fortunate to perform and work with many local organizations on an ongoing basis, including:
Alia Musica--Founded in 2007 as a composer consortium, Alia Musica has made a name for itself as an actor in the new music scene in Pittsburgh and in the US at large. The organization behind the Pittsburgh Festival of New Music, Alia Musica's ensemble has performed in venues throughout Pennsylvania, toured six states, and appeared internationally. Alia Musica's repertory combines monuments of modern music, from Ives and Varèse to Berio and Haas, with the freshest music by living composers, emerging and established.
