Thank you to everyone who volunteered, sponsored, and participated in our very first Turkey Trot! Minus the freezing rain, we had a great turn-out! We will be having one next year as well, so make sure to mark it on your calendars!

To view the photos from the event, visit our Facebook page here!



Approaching 200!!!


Approaching 200!!!

When we first started planning the 2014 Foxburg Turkey Trot 5K Run/Walk, we set some very high expectations. One of our goals was to try to get 200 participants. Foxburg has done several 5K Run/Walks in the past, but has yet to reach 200.

We are EXCITED to announce that we are VERY close to reaching our goal! If you are already registered, please ask your family and friends to register as well!

You can still register online here for $20, or register the day of the race for $25.

As of right now, it is looking like it is going to be a decent day. They are calling for a high around 40 degrees and a little sun.

We look forward to seeing everyone Saturday and would like to thank the participants that have already signed up for helping us get closer to our goal!

Thank you!


ARCA Presents: The Pittsburgh Youth Symphony Orchestra



Allegheny RiverStone Center for the Arts is proud to present the eighty member Pittsburgh Youth Symphony Orchestra performing a concert on Saturday, November 15 at 4:00 PM in the Allegheny-Clarion Valley High School Auditorium. Bring your family – invite your neighbors – and accompany any young person who loves music and dreams of playing an instrument!   Experience an unforgettable and inspiring afternoon of exuberant music making by eighty of the most talented young musicians in the greater Pittsburgh Region in its first performance in the Pennsylvania Wilds, right here in the Allegheny-Clarion River Valley.

The Pittsburgh Youth Symphony Orchestra is one of the Pittsburgh’s cultural treasures, one of the oldest youth orchestras in the country and one of the most advanced.  Founded in 1945, it cultivates in its members discipline, fine musicianship and an overall appreciation for excellence.  PYSO members bring a sense of amazement and excitement about classical music to diverse audiences-young and old, novice and seasoned.

PYSO will offer AC Valley residents a wonderful varied program under the baton of Music Director, Lawrence Loh.  Opening the program will be Appalachian Spring Suite, written by the American composer Aaron Copland for the ballet Appalachian Spring, celebrating the 19th century building of a Pennsylvania farmhouse.  The ballet was commissioned by the famous American choreographer and dancer, Martha Graham.

Principal Flutist of the Pittsburgh Symphony, Lorna McGhee, will display her consummate talents in a flute concerto by Lowell Liebermann. Ms. McGhee, originally from Scotland, has compiled an impressive list of international credentials due to her impeccable technique and musicianship.  The program will conclude with Peter Ilyitch Tchaikovsky’s rousing Symphony No. 4 in F Minor.

ARCA is grateful for a grant from the Pennsylvania Council on the Arts supporting the concert’s discounted family prices, to encourage attendance by the community and parents and students from the AC Valley Schools.

This rare opportunity is a must for young and old alike. Aspiring students can witness young performers at their best-whether or not they are seeking to choose music as a career.

Bring your entire family to an event that will showcase American youth at their best!
