The PNME involves unique collaborations among musicians, artists, and composers from Pittsburgh and throughout North America. Since its founding in 1976, PNME has commissioned and premiered over 200 works.

The 2014 PNME Season begins the weekend of July 11-12, and continues for four weeks until August 2-3.

Concert 4 (August 1 & 2) is based on the theme of Drunken Moon

"The wine that only eyes can drink…" ~ Albert Giraud

A heart-sick woman in a late-night dive

thinks she's met the man of her dreams –

only to discover that the river of love

can be a dangerous place to swim.

SHE: Lindsay Kesselman

HE: Timothy Jones

Directed by Kevin Noe

These PNME concerts are typically 1-2 hours, so it is not too long of an evening -- and is easily incorporated with other plans, such as dining before the show or going out for a drink afterwards.

In addition, if you have never been to a PNME concert before, PNME graciously offers first timers a free ticket!! First timers can pick up their free ticket at the Box Office beginning at 7 PM (one hour before the concert). See below for details.

Also, as another discount bonus -- if you've been to PNME before and bring someone new, you'll also receive a 50% off ticket. But if you bring 2 first timers, then you get in for free!

MEETUP Considerations

This event has been posted for both Friday, August 1 and Saturday, August 2 to allow maximum flexibility, especially for first timers taking advantage of the free first time offers or people bringing first timers that can receive a discount. 

But if people would like to go to PNME on their own (with family/friends) or in smaller groups, this is also fine.

When you RSVP, please indicate if you'd also like to consider meeting for dinner at a local Southside restaurant before the show or go out afterwards around 10 PM.

      No problem, Mardee ... there will be another PNME concert tonight (Saturday) where first timers are also free. Also if you're free this Wednesday August 6 (from 6-10 PM) please join us at CJ's for some great live jazz where we have 85+ RSVPs from the Meetup so you'll meet lots of people. Here is the link for the August 6 event http://www.meetup.com...­

    For anyone going tonight, let's try to meet around 7:30 PM in the lobby.

    If we haven't me before, I'll be wearing a green polo shirt with dark pants and glasses. Please feel free to introduce yourself. You can also access the RSVP list with your cellphone via the Meetup website.

    As a reminder, we've posted this Friday's and Saturday's night performance (August 1-2) so first timers have flexibility for getting their free ticket.

    And if people would like to go to on their own (with family/friends), this is also fine. But if you'd like to attend with the Meetup, please post a comment here if you prefer Friday or Saturday night.

    Check out this nice article about the show http://triblive.com/aande/music/6499420-74/ensemble-music-pierrot#axzz38zRyr7h2

    This is PNME's 39th Season and they have many subscribers. While the concert begins at 8 PM, it is not recommended you wait that late to try to get a free ticket since the concert could sell out. If you get there before 7:30 PM, people have a chance to mingle a bit in the lobby before heading to their seats.

    The City Theatre serves beer, wine, cocktails, coffee/tea/soft drinks along with cookies/snacks. These concerts are General Admission -- Open Seating. So this is another reason to get there a little early.

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
