The Pittsburgh Cultural Trust has been closely monitoring the COVID-19 pandemic and its impact on our venues and events. The safety of our guests, staff, and artists is of paramount importance, and in continued response to Governor Wolf's order, effective March 19, 2020 until further notice, to prohibit the operation of all businesses that are not life-sustaining, we have come to the extremely difficult decision to suspend additional Pittsburgh Cultural Trust events, extending through June 14.

As a result, this JazzLive Concert has been cancelled. We sincerely apologize for any inconvenience this may cause.


Lynn Speakman (alto saxophone/flute) has been a performer, composer, arranger, copyist, and music educator for the past 20 years. Her career has given her the opportunity to perform with bands such as the Christian McBride Big Band, Gerald Wilson and His Orchestra, Vanguard Jazz Orchestra, and Wycliffe Gordon Big Band as well as her own small groups. Lynn is also an experienced music educator and has performed and taught at the Stanford Jazz Workshop for 12 years as well as Calhoun School and Jazz at Lincoln Center’s Middle School Jazz Academy in NYC, Detroit Civic Youth Jazz in Michigan, and Center of Life Jazz in Pittsburgh. In addition to teaching and performing, Lynn spends much of her time composing and arranging as well as transcribing and engraving music for her own band, her students, and for a large list of clients in NYC, where she resided for 7 years. She currently resides in Pittsburgh, PA with her husband, Josh, and her 2 beagles.

For their Backstage Bar performance the Lynn Speakman Quartet will be honoring the late, great Jimmy Heath by featuring his compositions along with works that Lynn has composed.
