Chopin/Schumann on the Bluff
The Mary Pappert School of Music's popular chamber music series returns for a 21st season with the beginning of a two-year-long exploration and celebration of the solo piano and chamber music of Romantic composers Frédéric Chopin and Robert Schumann. Artistic Director David Allen Wehr has invited members of the Duquesne University faculty and the Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra, along with internationally-renowned guest artists for a feast of beautiful melodies and compelling story-telling.
All Music on the Bluff Series concerts are held in PNC Recital Hall on the first floor of the Mary Pappert School of Music. Admission is $15 per seat, and all concerts are reserved seating.
Advance admission is available by selecting the concert from the calendar below.
