Best of the Bluff

Best of the Bluff, Season One

Duquesne University presents Best of the Bluff, a two-year chamber music series resulting from a recent audience poll. Since 2002, Artistic Director David Allen Wehr, holder of the Jack W. Geltz Distinguished Piano Chair at Duquesne's Mary Pappert School of Music, has built each season around a specific composer or national style. Last September, Bluff audiences were presented with a list of the hundreds of musical works performed on the series. The results will inform the next two seasons of Best of the Bluff, bringing back many of the audience's favorite pieces and performers, along with some surprises. As always, the faculty of the Mary Pappert School of Music form the nucleus of the artistic corps, with many members of the Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra and international guest artists. As these have become increasingly popular, be sure to purchase your season tickets early so as not to be disappointed when the Sold Out sign goes up!

Pre-concert conversations with the artists will enhance your listening experience and encourage a closer rapport with the performers.
