| Tuesday, March 24, 2009

The Pittsburgh Chamber Music Society will reduce its offerings to six concerts for the 2009-10 season, down from seven concerts plus a four-concert Bridges Festival for 2008-09.

Executive director Kelli Clevenger said the organization expects a deficit for the current season, which has a $300,000 budget, and that next season's budget is projected at "closer to $200,000."

"We're going to maintain our quality, keep the budget within reason and keep ticket prices affordable," she said.

The Pittsburgh Chamber Music Society 2009-10 season:

Oct. 12: Orion String Quartet

Nov. 23: Brentano String Quartet

Jan. 18, 2010: Emerson String Quartet

March 1: Artemis Quartet

April 12: Alex Klein, oboe, Richard Young, viola, Ricardo Castro, piano

April 26: Hagen Quartet

Subscriptions to the six concert series are $45 to $165 if purchased before June 1, $50 to $190 thereafter.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
