“In a way, it’s an amazing thing that the world suddenly opens up again and we as a group pick up right where we left off.” says Alex Bard, COO of Hearcorp, one of the organizers of the event. “”The difference this time around is that in SomeraRoad and CBRE we have an executive producer who sees the vision and has given us the leeway to bring our unique combination of connections, experience, style and aesthetics to the Music on the Mon series. We also have the support of URA in using their property as a location for this series, which means a lot – – An old mill location between the American Eagle HQ and the Hyatt Hotel. ”
The fun doesn’t just stop there. Music on Monday is only part of the series; There will also be films on Monday. From July 7th and throughout the summer on Wednesday evenings, Movies on the Mon will show films made in and around Pittsburgh. Food and drinks are definitely offered from local food trucks and pop-ups, as well as cocktails and beer from local vendors.
“When the property approached us about partnering with this project, the vision for the series really took shape,” says Bard. “We knew we wanted to highlight Pittsburgh’s unique and talented musicians. We also knew we wanted to bring in regional tour acts to add depth to the series. Based on our experience of providing technology for the drive-in movies at the Carrie Furnace site, we wanted to include movie nights with a focus on Pittsburgh as a nod to the city in the regular weekly program. It started there – as a conversation. ”
Outside there is café-style seating for participants. However, event attendees are also encouraged to bring blankets and social distance on the lawn.
