The Pittsburgh Chamber Music Society named a new executive director today. Kristen Linfante comes to PCMS from Apollo Fire - The Cleveland Baroque Orchestra, but is already a Pittsburgh-area resident, and serves on the board of commissioners in Mount Lebanon. She is a violist herself in addition to having arts-management experience.
The PCMS, which has been around for over 50 years, has its next concert Mon., Feb. 3, which is also the day Linfante takes the help of the group. The concert features pianist Peter Serkin, and takes place at Carnegie Music Hall, Oakland.
