CYM Pianists perform at PSO pre-concert event

Piano students Andrew Li, Clara Yuo, Lakshmi Mulgund, Jayne Miner & Abby Bojalad enjoy an afternoon at Heinz Hall before a PSO concert.

On Sunday, June 10, Ms. Simmi Tripathi led several of her students to beautiful Heinz Hall to play in the lobby for the pre-PSO performance audience.

CYM students have performed regularly at Heinz Hall for over 20 years.  Each performance reminds of us how grateful we are to enjoy such a substantial cultural resource.

Thank you PSO!

CYM Cellists Cool Off the Crowd at Millie’s Ice Cream

Cello Faculty Member, Ryan Ash, and students performed June 8 at Millie’s Ice Cream in Shadyside.  Not much can compare to a group of cellists able to create a completely chill vibe. In addition to sounding great, the young cellists were treated to their choice of ice cream.

Millie’s is a locally-produced treat with two locations, one in Shadyside and one in Market Square.  You can pick up Millie’s at all Market Square versions of Giant Eagle, at T-bones in Wexford, and at B Gourmet in Sewickley.

Thanks, Millie’s for the flavors and the friendship!
