Music in a Great Space Celebrates 20th Anniversary Season for 2012-2013
Music in a Great Space, the concert series at Shadyside Presbyterian Church, marks its 20th anniversary season beginning Sunday, September 30, at 4:00 p.m.
The inaugural concert of the season features the four hands of internationally acclaimed pianists Laura Ward and Harold Evans, along with soprano Sari Gruber, mezzo-soprano Suzanne DuPlantis, tenor Joseph Gaines, and bass Randall Scarlata. The delightful afternoon of quartets, trios, duets, and solos will include Brahms’ Liebeslieder Waltzes, Bernstein’s Arias and Barcarolles, and more.
A number of exciting events are planned throughout the 2012-2013 concert season to celebrate this musical milestone, culminating in late February with the return of the Grammy Award-winning “orchestra of voices,” Chanticleer. The 2012-2013 concert season includes the following performances:

Shadyside Presbyterian Church is centrally located in the heart of Pittsburgh’s university district, just a few blocks away from the campuses of the University of Pittsburgh and Carnegie Mellon University. The church is situated on the corner of Amberson Avenue and Westminster Place, only one block off Fifth Avenue. The church’s 1994 Reuter Organ (opus 2175), capable of playing the full range of organ literature, accompanies the choir and leads the congregation in worship. As an American Classic instrument, it incorporates the German, French, Italian, and English schools of organ building to create an instrument of enormous versatility. The 105-rank organ helps to uphold the highest standards of sacred music and carries that tradition vibrantly into the twenty-first century.
