Making Model City Ideas Work for Pittsburgh

Since Bill Peduto was sworn in as mayor he’s done some pretty extensive traveling in order to gather and share ideas for a new Pittsburgh vision. From Chicago, to Washington D.C., to Ludwigsburg Germany, we’ll talk with him about what he’s learning from other cities, and how he’s working with local communities to apply those ideas in Pittsburgh.

Set to Music

Carnegie Mellon Ph. D candidate Ben Tengelsen put his songwriting on hold indefinitely. However, the birth of his son, and motivation from his wife, provided inspiration. The result is the song Allegheny which is featured on a new cd by the a cappella group Vocal Point. One of the members of the group is Jake Tengelsen, Ben’s brother. We’ll meet the Tengelsen brothers and hear their musical collaboration.
