Things aren’t looking good for a resolution any time soon of the Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra
musicians’ strike: The two sides aren’t talking, and the PSO has now canceled all performances through Nov. 18.
(For the record, management blames the union for not talking; the union says
that management won’t come to the table unless the musicians accept the PSO’s “last and best offer,” which includes a 15 percent pay cut.)
The strike began
on Sept. 30.
However, PSO musicians plan to keep playing.
On Sunday, at East Liberty Presbyterian Church, they’re staging A Brass Spectacular!
featuring the brass sections of both the PSO and the Philadelphia Orchestra. They’ll be joined by brass players from the Boston Symphony, National Symphony and Cleveland Orchestra. Musicians of the Philly orchestra recently ended their own brief strike
East Liberty Presbyterian Church is located at 116 S. Highland Ave., in East Liberty.
