Two Music 101 lectures that were canceled during the Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra’s work stoppage have been rescheduled. Double bassist John Moore will present “It’s All About the Bass” on February 22, and horn player Stephen Kostyniak will offer “Blowing My Own Horn” on May 17. Music 101 lectures—a series of informal lunchtime lecture-recitals presented at the Dorothy Porter Simmons Regency Rooms of Heinz Hall—are open to the public and have a $2 admission fee. Speakers discuss their musical lives and instruments, and there are short musical performances. The remaining Music 101 lectures for 2016-17 will be presented as previously announced on February 1 (violinist Jennifer Orchard), March 17 (conductor Yan Pascal Tortelier), and April 18 (bass clarinet Jack Howell).
