The Pittsburgh Camerata and Pittsburgh Girls Choir are embarking on a unique administrative affiliation to provide strategic innovation, creative growth and ongoing strength for each organization – and an energized choral arts presence for our community. The affiliation involves a shared full-time executive director and other shared administrative services while maintaining each organization’s distinct identity, mission and nonprofit status.
Both the Pittsburgh Camerata and Pittsburgh Girls Choir are steeped in the richness and depth of choral tradition. This affiliation positions us to deepen our artistic quality through concert programming, commissioning of new music, education, and the artistic expansion of our singers and musicians. The affiliation will benefit the overall arts community as much as the individual organizations.
Gail Luley states, “As Pittsburgh Camerata’s Managing Director since 1998, I have a personal passion to secure its strength and sustainability long after my retirement. I am thrilled with the potential this affiliation presents to increase the agility and artistic capacity of both organizations. I’m part of the transition team and will be on-board for as long as needed to provide a solid foundation for the new Executive Director.”
