It’s no secret that Pittsburgh is slowly making a name for itself as one of the most vibrant and cultural cities in the US. But there’s a lot more to Pittsburgh’s cultural center than those few blocks downtown.

Local artist managers, Linda Reznik and Jessica Marino, who make up River City Artists Management, have come up with a way to bring Pittsburgh’s up-and-coming artists into the limelight. This event will bring together local performers, including dancers, musicians and singers for a small low key performance.

SundaySeries @ PointBreezeway is a new monthly event a few blocks from the corner of Fifth and Penn Avenues in Breezewood. Reznik originally started the management company as a way to connect local artists to booking opportunities in the US and abroad. But with this new series she hopes to not only showcase local artists, but generate excitement for the performance culture in Pittsburgh.

The venue, Point Breezeway, has been around since 1908 and gone through several makeovers. It’s been everything from a speakeasy to a supermarket to an art studio. Currently being used as a studio and guesthouse, it’s the perfect spot for these secluded performances. The first performance was August 6th with Pittsburgh Complaints n’At Choir, a group of singers who compose songs based on the submitted complaints of Pittsburgh residents, and Shana Simmons Dance, a project based contemporary dance company. The next show is Sunday, September 14th and will be an intimate dance performance featuring Jasmine Hearn and Continuum Dance Theater.

 

 

The SundaySeries on October 12th will feature Gia T. and Gia T. Presents–an international music and dance ensemble match up, along with the Staycee Pearl Dance Project. All shows start at 2pm and admission is $10 per person at the door.
