IUP Plays Pittsburgh

IUP musicians thrilled an enthusiastic audience at Pittsburgh’s Heinz Hall on November 2 when IUP presented its third annual IUP Plays Pittsburgh event.

The concert showcased the talents of IUP faculty members and students in the IUP Wind Ensemble, IUP Trombone Choir, the Keystone Winds Brass and Percussion group, IUP Music Theater, and the IUP Marching Band. It also featured a world premiere and a Pittsburgh premiere of performances of works by Richard Danielpour, the 2009–2010 Pittsburgh Symphony Composer of the Year, as well as the world-premiere performance of a composition by IUP student Derek Cooper. Ted Sohier from WQED served as master of ceremonies for the event, which included a dessert reception hosted by President Tony Atwater for all concert ticket holders.
