As executive director of Visit Pittsburgh, Beverly Morrow Jones is head cheerleader for our region’s scenic, historic and cultural attractions. Like a Hollywood agent who won’t take “no” for an answer, she talks up the city through direct marketing, advertising campaigns, billboards or radio and TV interviews. A lyric soprano, she attended Oberlin College in Ohio on a full scholarship, singing opera during the week and belting out Dusty Springfield and Laura Nyro songs with a rock band on the weekends.
“I love jazz and if I have sort of a mythical second life I’d probably want to sing blues and standards in a club,” she says. “That would be loads of fun.”
“My primary goal is to let everybody in the universe know what a great city we live in. There’s so much great stuff happening here. It’s wonderful to be in a position to tell the story. ”
The star who would play me in the movie version of my life and why:
Bernadette Peters or Madeline Kahn, if she were alive. They’re small, sassy, talented performers with big voices.
Roberta Peters. I saw her perform in Pittsburgh when I had just started taking singing lessons. She was small and beautiful and wore the most gorgeous red satin gown. Until then, I was convinced I could never be an opera singer because all of the opera stars were very large.
Heights and deep waters. Got caught in a rip tide in Virgin Gorda and that was the end of snorkeling.
If I was auditioning for “American Idol,” my song would be:
“My Man’s Gone Now,” from “Porgy and Bess”
The first band I saw in concert (when and where):
Bob Dylan a million years ago at Cornell.
TV marathon I could watch all day and why:
“Mad Men.” Watched 26 episodes over the holidays
The person I’m most often mistaken for:
When I had long hair, it was Susan Sarandon.
I own pairs of shoes.
We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.
While most comments will be posted if they are on topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.
We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers
We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won’t tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don’t include URLs to Web sites.
We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.
We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don’t want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.
We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent
via e mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won’t publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
