A trio of dazzling vocalists — Chester Gregory, Michael Lynche and Shayna Steele — join conductor Byron Stripling and the Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra to honor the artists of Motown.

Motown Records is a record label founded in 1959 by producer Barry Gordy which developed a style soul music that became known as “The Motown Sound.”  Motown music is magnetic, mobilizing and — most importantly — a cause for celebration.

Founded in 1895 by British composer, conductor and organist Frederic Archer (1838-1901), the Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra is one of America’s oldest and most prestigious orchestras having performed around the world including a 2004 concert for Pope John Paul II (1920-2005).

This program features smash hits made famous by artists like Marvin Gaye, The Four Tops, Martha Reeves, Michael Jackson, Diana Ross, The Temptations and the one-and-only Stevie Wonder.
