The Pittsburgh Chapter of NPM is also on Facebook. We have a closed group that any Pittsburgh musician may join. The group name is "Pittsburgh NPM Musicians' Forum." Search for this page on Facebook and request to join. Amanda Plazek Bruce administers this group and once you request to join she will add you to the roster. This group is a great way to quickly stay in touch with area church musicians and a rapid way to find a substitute.
