The Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra, led by Conductor Daniel Meyer, performed for a large crowd of Wilkinsburg students and residents for the sixth time in as many years on Tuesday night. The hour and a half long program was composed of seven pieces and featured the voice talent of soprano Deborah Selig. The evening was capped with a presentation of gifts to C Meyer who is leaving the PSO. Meyer said  the Wilkinsburg concert has been one of his favorite projects during his time with the PSO. Wilkinsburg will miss  Meyer and the community thanks him for all his efforts in making these concerts possible. Thanks to the efforts of Lois Clark and the Wilkinsburg PSO Community Engagement Committee, the annual concert will continue, hopefully for many years to come. The concerts have raised more than $48,000 for music programs in the Wilkinsburg School District and has sparked a musical renaissance in the schools.
