October 2011 – The Pittsburgh Area Folk Ensemble (PÁS) will be performing two community concerts with the Pittsburgh Philharmonic Orchestra. The two appearances will take place in both the cities of Butler and Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.
PÁS will represent Slovak culture as part of the Pittsburgh Philharmonic’s program theme of “Going Abroad” during its 2011-2012 regular season. The “first stop” on the tour will take the audience to experience the cultures of the Austro-Hungarian Empire, which included the area of present-day Slovakia. PÁS dancers will perform to the music of the Moravian folklorist/composer, Leoš Janáček with his Lachian Dances.
The first concert will take place at 8 pm on Friday, October 28, at the Butler County Community College. The second performance will be at North Hills Junior High School on October 29th at 7 pm.
