Support Live Music;
We're the Professionals

The Pittsburgh Musicians' Union (PMU) is an organization of over 750 professional musicians. For more than 100 years, the PMU has been working to achieve dignity and just wages for our art. Our members include the Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra, the Pittsburgh Opera Orchestra, Pittsburgh Ballet Theatre Orchestra, the River City Brass Band and the orchestras for Pittsburgh Civic Light Opera and many other performing arts groups. We represent musicians performing all styles of music: alternative rock, soul, classical, jazz, rock, country, pop, reggae, Christian rock, and others. Also musicians active in recording commercials, television and radio programs and CD's, and musicians performing at private and corporate parties locally and throughout North America.

As a part of the American Federation of Musicians (our national organization) with 100,000 members nationwide, our members are connected and informed of matters of importance to musicians. Legislative issues, job vacancies, health and welfare concerns are addressed and discussed in publications and online, in forums available to members.
