PMA at the SLB

The Saturday Light Brigade is a weekly radio show broadcast for children in Pittsburgh. One regular segment is the Youth Expressions Showcase which features music students from the area. These students of The Pittsburgh Music Academy performed and were interviewed in July, 2017. Each child finely demonstrated extreme focus and individual expression in a truly unique venue! Families from near and far appreciated the opportunity to listen to their special soloist either on air or online. Archives can be found at
