  A duet of cottages, the “Philharmonics” House and the “Pops” House, showcased the work of 40 area designers who each put their artistic stamp on a total of 8,500 square feet of living space in the RPO’s sixth biennial fundraising event. Located next door to one another at Thornell Road and Route 64 in Pittsford and built by Ketmar Development, the two houses played homage to the RPO’s musical heart. Each designer decoated a room or space corresponding to the type of music they chose from 50 selections on the RPO 2008-09 and 2009-10 seasons.
