Money for the PSO

Friday, October 11, 2002

By Andrew Druckenbrod, Post-Gazette Classical Music Critic

The financially beleaguered Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra has reason to sing today.

Acusis, a technology and delivery service company with offices in Pittsburgh, has pledged $225,000 over a three-year period to the PSO. The contribution comes as sweet news to the orchestra, which recently projected a deficit of nearly $1 million this fiscal year.

"We understand the value of ensuring that the Pittsburgh Symphony has a stable financial base, as the symphony is certainly one of the most globally respected ambassadors of Pittsburgh," said David Iwinski Jr., president and CEO of Acusis.

Gideon Toeplitz, managing director of the PSO, was grateful for the financial boost.

"[Acusis] responded to our immediate need, but its long-term commitment demonstrates its confidence in the Pittsburgh Symphony and a desire to see our region prosper."
