Live! Our Exclusive Youth Show Choir Returns for an All-New Concert Celebrating a Return to School (Can You Believe It?)


The Strand is thrilled to welcome back our exclusive Youth Show Choir for their Fall Concert with our newest crop of talented students from school districts all over North Pittsburgh!


There's no doubt that the COVID-19 outbreak had a severe impact on everyone, including students in the arts. who found their musicals, choral concerts and band programs cancelled from the nationwide lockdown.  Following that, they lost all in-person instruction through the end of the school year. As the pandemic extended through the Summer, even a return to school in the Fall seemed in doubt.


Fortunately for most, schools did reopen, and students were actually overjoyed with the prospect of returning to school, seeing their friends and enjoying in-person instruction!


This image taken from The StrandTastics appearance at the annual Taste of the New North Dining-Out gala captures the energy that these talented students bring to the stage.  Expect an even more energetic performance on November 21, 22 & December 3


'KEEP CALM, SCHOOL'S IN!' is the theme of this semester's production.  The StrandTastics reunited after having their Spring term cancelled. The group's been working hard to create a program that celebrates a return to school as well as share how the coronavirus impacted them through the many months that it has endured.


Because of occupancy restrictions, we're pleased to announce that the concert can be viewed live and in-person from The Strand stage OR enjoyed from the comfort of your home as the show is streamed live to your favorite device!  

After their Spring semester was cancelled, The StrandTastics responded with this spirited video with a message of hope through music!
