The Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra is pleased to announce that through the 2022-2023 season, UBS, the worldwide financial services firm, will be known as the “Title Sponsor” of the PSO’s Encore Lounge, the exclusive donor lounge that is used during intermissions of all BNY Mellon Grand Classics concerts. The lounge will now be rebranded as the UBS Encore Lounge.
“The USB Encore Lounge is a terrific incentive for individual and corporate donors who contribute philanthropic support,” says Melia Tourangeau, president and CEO of the Pittsburgh Symphony. “The Lounge represents an important and ongoing connection the PSO has with its contributors, and having UBS attached as the title sponsor, adds a special touch point to those who help sustain our programs and initiatives. We couldn’t be happier about this sponsorship!”
“UBS is a strong supporter of the arts in many markets around the world and we are thrilled to be able to extend that support locally to the Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra. As one of the world’s top wealth management firms, we are excited to be associated with one of the world’s top symphonies,” said UBS Branch Office Managers Matt Prepelka, Jameson Viljaste, and Lou Sforza.
Debuting in 2015, the new Encore Lounge is an exclusive space on the Grand Tier Level of Heinz Hall. During intermission at all BNY Mellon Grand Classics concerts, it functions as a lounge for major individual donors who give at the $1,750+ level and corporate donors who give at the $2,500+ level. Donors enjoy complimentary coffee, tea, soft drinks, and discounted wine and may also bring guests. They also have access to exclusive restrooms and are also often introduced to musicians of the Orchestra.
The PSO and Heinz Hall will consider other UBS-branded surprise-and-delight ideas for UBS Encore Lounge members throughout the six year partnership.
