AMERICAN COMPOSERS IN THE SPOTLIGHT DURING PITTSBURGH SYMPHONY ORCHESTRA BNY MELLON GRAND CLASSICS PERFORMANCE
PITTSBURGH—Salute the red, white and blue with the Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra during the BNY Mellon Grand Classics “American Fanfare” weekend on March 28-30 at Heinz Hall.
With conductor Michael Stern, the Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra will be the centerpiece of a program featuring some of the most beloved works of American composers, including “Appalachian Spring” by Aaron Copland and George Gershwin's “An American in Paris,” among others.
Each BNY Mellon Grand Classics concert is part of the Explore & Engage program, which includes pre-concert talks, exhibits, display boards and interactive activities that illuminate the music, composers and the time in which they created. This weekend, Resident Conductor Lawrence Loh will conduct a pre-concert talk one hour before each performance.
The concert begins at 8 p.m. on Friday and Saturday and 2:30 p.m. on Sunday. Tickets, ranging in price from $25.75 to $105.75, can be purchased by calling the Heinz Hall box office at 412-392-4900 or by visiting pittsburghsymphony.org.
The Pittsburgh Symphony would like to recognize and thank BNY Mellon for its 2013-2014 title sponsorship of BNY Mellon Grand Classics. Fairmont Pittsburgh is the official hotel of the Pittsburgh Symphony. Delta Air Lines is the official airline of the Pittsburgh Symphony.
