Classical Revolution Pittsburgh

Classical Revolution Pittsburgh performs works by Mark O'Connor, Astor Piazzolla, Sergei Prokofiev, and Lev Zhurbin on Tuesday March 6th 2012 at 8pm at Monk's Place: 3634 Penn Avenue Pittsburgh, PA. The concert will begin at 8pm. Admission is free. Donations are welcome. ... The mission of Classical Revolution is to present live chamber music involving both traditional and modern approaches to the art form while engaging a broad and diverse community by offering these performances at low or no cost in highly accessible venues, such as cafes and bars. By taking chamber music out of the recital hall and making it more accessible to an audience who would not otherwise hear such music live, we hope a broader public will appreciate chamber music’s relevance. Thus, we hope to weave this music into a cultural landscape presently populated by more mainstream forms of musical entertainment. The musicians who play in Classical Revolution come from a variety of backgrounds from award-winning professional ensembles to recent graduates or students from the nation's best conservatories to accomplished musicians who use Classical Revolution as an outlet to maintain their musical life while working non-musical jobs. This inter-relation between professional and non-professional musicians is a fundamental part of our organization: dissolving boundaries that result from the specialization of musicians and bringing people, both audience and performers, together.
