We are committed to bringing arts and music back to the Shady Side Academy and Pittsburgh communities safely. In fall 2020, the Hillman Center announced the 15th season of its Hillman Performing Arts Series, featuring an incredible lineup of four family-friendly musical artists, with all shows scheduled from March through May 2021 in the hopes of being able to gather safely by that time.
The possibility of holding indoor concerts in March and April now seems increasingly unlikely given the state's COVID-19 public health metrics and gathering limits. And, given Pittsburgh's wildly variable spring weather, simply moving the concerts outdoors did not make sense. Discussions are ongoing with the "The American Songster," folk artist Dom Flemons; Americana duo The Honey Dewdrops; Latin- American family musical artist Sonia de los Santos; and Steinway pianist and composer Robin Spielberg on a variety of alternate possibilities, including moving the shows to the warmer months of May and June so that some or all of the concerts can be held outdoors with safe, socially distant seating for families.
Stay tuned for updates on the 2021 Hillman Series via email and on the Hillman Center website. For questions, contact Hillman Center Artistic Director Christa Burneff at email@example.com.
