Resonance Works

Mission

Resonance Works is an artist-driven, collaborative performing arts company dedicated to exploring the confluence of artist, audience, music, and space through performances that empower musicians and engage audiences.

We are a multi-modal company, showcasing an orchestra, chorus, vocal soloists, chamber musicians, staged opera, and musical theater – often on the same program. Featuring repertoire that is championed by its artists and themes that resonate with the current climate, Resonance Works connects the arts to today’s audience.

Drawing on the diverse genres of classical music makes Resonance Works unique in Pittsburgh.  We are nimbly positioned to be whatever we need to be - orchestra, opera company, choir, new music ensemble, and more - to enrich our community by bringing intimate musical experiences to a variety of neighborhoods and audiences.

Founded in 2013, the company has quickly become an important part of the professional arts ecosystem in Pittsburgh, and is committed to maintaining a rich and vibrant community of professional musicians in the region. We aim to create new musical experiences for Pittsburgh audiences, and to that end have incorporated a number of rare works as well as local, national, and world premieres in our repertoire, alongside beloved masterworks presented in intimate and unique contexts.  

Our programming model has also led to numerous artistic partnerships in dance, theatre, photography, and visual art.  We have enjoyed collaborations with Pittsburgh Symphony musicians, the Homewood Cemetery, the University of Pittsburgh Department of Theatre Arts, and many others. By the end of our 2018-19 season, we will have performed in 14 communities, including 10 Pittsburgh neighborhoods.
