A constellation of five female composers (Jennifer Higdon, Libby Larsen, Jessie Montgomery, Florence Price and Joan Tower) forms the foundation of Episode 5: For the People, a program of works all written in the past 100 years by American composers that brings a lens to the country’s unique soundscape and the cultural and musical forces of openness, possibilities, challenges and opportunities. This episode is led by Conductor Andrés Franco and Guest Concertmaster Alexi Kenney. Front Row concerts are presented for free

Front Row is available free to the public through the Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra's media player.
