Those regular readers of the PSO blogs may have noticed a couple of additions over the past week or two…
We’re delighted to have on board our soon-to-be Music Director and Principal Guest Conductor. The 2008-2009 season (just under a year from now) will see Manfred Honeck and Leonard Slatkin take up those positions with our orchestra and we’re very very excited about it. I’m personally even more excited that they’ll be contributing to our blogs, Manfred via email and Leonard via his own website (see their first posts here and here)!
Expect to see posts on a monthly basis, detailing what the maestri (or is it ‘maestros’? Answers on a post-card!) have been up to and where in the world they are. As ever, feel free to post your questions and comments for them and our other Pittsburgh Symphony Bloggers.
Now, I’m off to enjoy the end of the rehearsal of Sibelius’ violin concerto with Nikolaj Znaider. Brilliant!
