Duet Handbells at the PSO before the Holiday Pops

I enjoyed the Holiday Pops with the Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra and the Mendelssohn Choir

Before the concert began, in the lobby at Heinz Hall in front of the Christmas tree, Robert and Roberta Erickson at the Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra Heinz Hall, performed Solo and Duet Handbells

This is the Christmas tree at Heinz Hall:

While waiting for the start of the Verdi Requiem (which I really liked), I took my own photos of the framed pictures that adorn the Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra Christmas tree. Click on the image to see a larger view. Who can name all these events? I think the top left picture is the PSO performing before the Pope. And the bottom left looks to me to be PSO performing at the Musikverein in Vienna. The top right reads 'PROMS' - is that in London? And of course Heinz Hall is below that. Anyone know the rest? Leave a comment if you do.

After the concert while exiting, I was pleased to meet Joanne Rogers. I knew that she was a pianist herself, having heard her music played on WQED-FM on several occasions.

And here I am taking pictures...
