CYM on Saturday Light Brigade Radio

We hope you have all been following CYM students' adventures as featured musicians on Pittsburgh's family friendly radio program Saturday Light Brigade, stationed out of the Children's Museum of Pittsburgh.

We are so proud of the groups who have performed so far, and look forward to a second group of cellists to perform on the show soon!

Ms. Sonia and CYM pianists made their radio debut on June 4th
