East Liberty LIVE!


Kelly Strayhorn Theater presents East Liberty LIVE!—a vibrant series of affordable and accessible summer arts programming. With more than 20 events throughout the summer, East Liberty LIVE! provides positive creative activities and innovative arts experiences for those who work, play, and live in the East End.

 East Liberty LIVE! is all about getting the community together, having fun, and enjoying something new.”

“Our summer series has something for everyone”, says janera solomon, executive director of KST. “We’re happy to present national and local artists, and to have great community partnerships with Chamber Music Pittsburgh, Reed Dance, Legacy Arts Project, Style and Steel, and the Pittsburgh Hip Hop Collective this year. East Liberty LIVE! is all about getting the community together, having fun, and enjoying something new.”

This is the fifth year for Chamber Music Pittsburgh’s presentation of its three-part concert series, Just Summer! “We can’t imagine a better partner than KST and the East Liberty LIVE! series as we expand our reach within the greater Pittsburgh community,” says Kristen Linfante, executive director of Chamber Music Pittsburgh.

East Liberty LIVE! features KST’s Creative Community Residency Program, where selected artists explore ways to engage our diverse community in their creative process, and do so in a way that brings prosperity—artistic, cultural, and social—to East Liberty. Audiences can visit The Alloy Studios or Kelly Strayhorn Theater to meet the lead artist, collaborators, and performers to discuss topics pertinent to the development of their work.

East Liberty LIVE! has it all, from music and dance to film and family events. This summer, spend time with KST as we celebrate local restaurants, groove to live music, discover innovative dance performances, and more!

The 2017 East Liberty LIVE! summer series is sponsored by PNC Bank, Highmark Blue Cross Blue Shield, UPMC Health Plan and The Mosites Company.
