Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra’s Beethoven In Your Neighborhood: The Library Project

Beethoven In Your Neighborhood: The Library Project free concert series, celebrating the musical genius of Ludwig van Beethoven and Andrew Carnegie’s establishment of many free public library systems, debuts at MuseumLab with this performance:

Beethoven’s String Quartet No. 1 in F major, Opus 18, No. 1

Wednesday, May 4, 7:00 pm
Pierce Cook, Host
Performed by Kelsey Blumenthal, Marta Krechkovsky, Andrew Wickesberg, Karissa Shivone

The series will run through June 29, featuring all 16 of Beethoven’s string quartets performed at libraries in nine Pittsburgh neighborhoods and six suburban neighborhoods, as well as at MuseumLab. This new museum for youth and teens is one of the concert sites because it is located in what was once the Carnegie Free Library of Allegheny, the first library commissioned for the public by Andrew Carnegie in 1886.

The Library Project, rescheduled from 2020 due to the pandemic, was originally conceived to commemorate the shared 125th anniversary years of both the Pittsburgh Symphony and Carnegie Library of Pittsburgh, and the 250th birth year of Ludwig van Beethoven, one of the most performed, influential and known composers in history. The 16 Beethoven string quartets serve as a blueprint of his artistic development and contain many of his most personal statements.

The Music in Me: Explore the Relationship Between Emotions and Music with DJ Shoe

Teaching artist and DJ-producer David Shoemaker will lead museum visitors in exploring the relationship between music and emotions in our newest exhibit, Emotion’s at Play with Pixar’s Inside Out.

Using the exhibit’s Control Panel as a sound station, visitors will learn how simple sounds, like a piano chord or string pluck, can be the foundation for how artists use melody and rhythm to make listeners feel different emotions, from joy to sadness.  Visitors will co-create their own short compositions with Shoemaker using Control Panel sounds.
