The Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra’s new digital series gives a complete episodic narrative to viewers of the symphony along with its community and history. Filmed throughout the Pittsburgh region, the episodes showcase the exquisite musicians of the PSO as well as the people, places and spaces around the city that the viewers will love to see. These episodes give insight into the heart and soul of the Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra and their passion for music while returning the love to the Pittsburgh community and audience.

It’s evident that music holds the power to uplift and unite people. While our current reality is chaotic, it is a relief to take a moment and listen to the beautiful sounds played by the Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra.

Flying Scooter Productions had the honor of producing the series in a time when the world seemed to stop turning and become socially isolated. There were many differences from what a regular production would look like before the pandemic.

During production, accommodations were made that differ from pre-COVID times, which included daily health screenings and temperature checks, socially distanced interactions, face masks and individually packaged craft services. All which to ensure the health and well being of the crew members, musicians and all of those on set during filming. The end result is a series of episodes that are powerfully presented by PSO, and a proud accomplishment of all of us here at Flying Scooter Productions. We hope you enjoy watching this series and get as much joy and wonderment from the experience as we did in producing it.

The entire series was primarily filmed and promptly premiered in the month of October alone (thanks to our Executive Producer/Director Jennifer Schlieper and Executive Producer Courtney Gumpf) and the first episode, Our Love For Pittsburgh, officially launched on October 19, 2020.
