The Event

Sunday, September 17, 2017 at 10:00 AM in Pittsburgh, PA at Millvale Riverfront Park

Please join us for the inaugural Musicians of Steel 5K Run/Walk, a charity race organized by the Musicians of the Pittsburgh Symphony! The race begins at the Millvale Riverfront Pavilion and follows a flat out-and-back course along Pittsburgh's beautiful North Shore on Three Rivers Heritage Trail. You'll be serenaded with live music from PSO musicians and other local artists along the course and at the finish line. A water station will be provided. Prizes will be awarded to top male and female finishers as well as top finishers in seven age categories.

Special bonus: join us at 9:00 AM for a spectacular pre-race concert featuring Orchestre de Nile, a funky brass band made up of PSO members and some of Pittsburgh's top jazz musicians! Meet and mingle with Musicians of the Pittsburgh Symphony, and join our amazing community of music lovers.

This event is sanctioned by USA Track and Field. Chip timing provided by Runner's High.

Who We Are

The Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra is made up of 101 of the world's finest musicians. For more than a century the orchestra has been the cornerstone of Pittsburgh's vibrant cultural landscape. The musicians of the Pittsburgh Symphony are members of the community of Pittsburgh, a community that is remarkable for its commitment to supporting the very best cultural institutions here in Pittsburgh. As teachers, parents, volunteers, and civic leaders, PSO musicians strive to connect with and build our community. We return the city’s commitment to excellence both with great concerts and with a complete embrace of community causes and needs.

Why We’re Doing This

Proceeds from this event will be donated to the PSO Musicians Care Fund, an endowment established by Musicians of the PSO and administered by the Pittsburgh Foundation. This fund directly benefits local area schools and community music programs that have undergone budget cuts due to funding losses. The fund offers critical support to these programs in a myriad of ways, helping to provide musical instruments, music lessons, instrument repairs, scholarships, and transportation to PSO educational performances. The Musicians of the PSO feel passionately about the value of arts education, and feel the responsibility to aid in the cultural enrichment of young people's lives.
