Resonance Works is an artist-driven, multi-modal performing arts company dedicated to exploring the confluence of artist, audience, music, and space through performances that empower musicians and engage audiences.

Resonance Works showcases an orchestra, chorus, vocal soloists, chamber musicians, staged opera, and musical theater – often on the same program. Featuring repertoire that is championed by its artists and themes that resonate with the current climate, Resonance Works connects the arts to today’s audience.

Drawing on the diverse genres of classical music makes Resonance Works unique in Pittsburgh. We are whatever we need to be - orchestra, opera company, choir, new music ensemble, and more - to enrich our community by bringing unique and meaningful musical experiences to a variety of neighborhoods and audiences.

Founded in 2013, the company has quickly become an important part of the professional arts ecosystem in Pittsburgh, and is committed to maintaining a rich and vibrant community of professional musicians in the region. Our model has also led to numerous artistic partnerships in dance, theatre, photography, and visual art, as well as collaborations with community organizations.
