Pittsburgh Symphony Honors Tree of Life Synagogue Shooting Victims

On November 27, the Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra (PSO), members of Local 60-471 (Pittsburgh, PA), performed “A Concert for Peace and Unity” in honor of the victims of the Tree of Life synagogue shooting in Pittsburgh. The concert was broadcast December 11 on PBS.

The orchestra was joined by violinist Itzhak Perlman of Local 802 (New York City) and the Mendelssohn Choir of Pittsburgh. All artists donated their services for this meaningful community concert. Contributions were collected to support the Jewish Federation’s “Our Victims of Terror Fund” and the “Injured Officers Fund.”
