Opera Shines at Maecenas
On Saturday night, 200 attendees celebrated the Pittsburgh Opera and the 38th annual Maecenas Gala at the Bitz Opera Factory. The Maecenas Award was presented to Mary Louise Gailliot and the late Henry J. Gailliot. The Lifetime Achievement Award was presented to Janet Sarbaugh, who served as the Vice President of the Creativity Program for The Heinz Endowments until her retirement in December. Guests enjoyed live performances by Pittsburgh Opera’s award-winning Resident Artists, Pittsburgh Festival Orchestra, and Studio E Band. The event raised nearly $200,000 for the Opera.
