Summer Student Side-by-Side: Interview with Zan and Marella

Each summer the Pittsburgh Philharmonic has some guest musicians performing with us.  These are participants in our Side-by-Side program.  They are music students of high school age who are selected by audition to play with the Philharmonic side-by-side with our regular members.


We decided to ask them some questions so that we could learn more about them. Find the full blog here!
