Why choose PMA?

Memo for July 11, 2016 - Summer Week 4

Dear PMA Community Member,

We're gearing up for Christmas in July! Please participate if you can - we will perform Christmas music on Tuesday, July 26, at Market Square in downtown Pittsburgh from 9:30 to 11:30am. There will be rehearsals at each PMA location to prepare for the event.

We also have play-ins for various instruments scheduled this week. Please come - it will be fun and a good way to motivate students to practice during the summer. We would love to see a bunch of you this week.

This week we will have the Cello Fury Senior Camp in Carnegie. If you're there for a lesson take a peak at what they're doing - it looks like tons of fun.

Have a great week!
