Cellos for Charity raising money for arts education

Pitt faculty, students and others will join together April 4 for a concert featuring cellos, violins and pianos to raise money for ArtistYear, an organization dedicated to addressing inequities in music/arts education in K-12 schools.

The Cellos for Charity concert — at 8 p.m. at the Bellefield Hall auditorium — will feature cellists Alicia Loui, Paula Tuttle, Will Chow and Talia Mekinulov; violinists Charles May and Josh Lou; and pianists Tina Faigen and David Harrison performing as solos, duets, trios, and quartets.

The event is free but donations are suggested via GoFundMe. All proceeds will go to ArtistYear, which aims to make arts education accessible for all children.

University of Pittsburgh campuses are closed to the general public, but open to University members and registered guests. University members can register a guest online. Registered guests will receive a confirmation email that they are required to present, along with a photo ID, upon arrival on campus. Streaming will be available to the general public via the Music at Pitt YouTube channel.
