Pittsburgh Brashear was the setting for a new reality television show this past week, and filming wrapped up with a concert Sunday night.

For the past week, USA Networks filmed part of a reality television show at Pittsburgh Brashear High School. The new series focuses on starting choirs, and filming wrapped on Sunday with a concert. For more information about the series, check out this article. The concert showcased a newly-formed show choir, featuring Brashear students and a talent they only recently discovered they had. “There’s a …

It’s about a young man, 17, being killed.” …
