A recent study conducted by the Sound Music Cities called “The Pittsburgh Music Ecosystem Study” gave insight into this city’s music industry. It found that Pittsburgh’s music scene is held back by its economic struggle and frustration that has seeped into the music industry. Many locally-based musicians juggle music as a part-time job, receiving low pay. Career development opportunities in the music industry are sparse, isolating talent in the industry. And, legal regulations prevent venues, organizations, and individuals from thriving.
These factors may seem like disadvantages to Pittsburgh’s music scene, but the truth is that the city is filled with potential. With existing talent and passion among local musicians and commitment from local venues, listeners can find great music in this city today. As Pittsburgh begins to implement the plan outlined by Sound Music Cities, the entire community will benefit, and quality listening opportunities will expand. By connecting musicians and lowering barriers to deeply integrating in the music industry, Pittsburgh could become a regional force in music. Listeners who want to hear raw talent and witness an evolution in music will enjoy what Pittsburgh has to offer now and in coming years.

Museums are some of the most underrated concert venues. With tons of artifacts and multimedia educational resources, there is never a dull moment when alone or with friends. As community caretakers, museums ensure that ticket prices are affordable to the public. Because museum operators understand the significance of supporting cultural events, they tend to support the arts. These factors combined make museums a natural fit for community events, such as concerts and festivals.
