The Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra (PSO) will be taking its world-class musicians and sterling symphonic sound abroad this fall. When it does, the Pittsburgh Regional Alliance (PRA) will once again partner with the PSO to showcase what’s “world best” about the region and will promote the opportunities for international business investment here. The PSO’s 2012 European Tour includes 12 concerts in eight cities from Oct. 25 – Nov. 10.
PRA President Dewitt Peart had this to say about a unique partnership between his organization and the PSO – one that strikes a chord on both sides of the Atlantic. “Pittsburgh is internationally recognized for collaboration. We work together like no place else. Here, organizations such as a symphony orchestra and an economic development agency partner to promote our region, which National Geographic Traveler has called a ‘must-see, best-of-the-world destination’ in 2012. The region has a world of opportunity to offer, and its people make Pittsburgh experiences – from visits to significant business ventures – authentic and successful. The ‘Power of Pittsburgh’ is its people, and we’re delighted to personally showcase the region through its musicians, business leaders and other partners who are passionate about Pittsburgh – when the PRA tours Europe alongside the PSO.”
The partnership between the PSO and the PRA marks its seventh anniversary with the 2012 tour.
