Honeck & The Tallis Scholars

The Tallis Scholars, considered one of the world's leading Renaissance vocal music ensembles, celebrate their 40th anniversary this year. During the first half of the concert, the Tallis Scholars present an a cappella program, including Allegri's famous Miserere, that highlight the Renaissance inspirations in the music of Bruckner. Bruckner's Symphony No. 4 is subtitled "Romantic", and has a detailed program about a medieval castle, knights on horseback, the beauty of Nature, and a hunt.

Tickets start at $25 -- although we can probably get a little discount depending on the size of the group.

Of note is people can also meet one hour before the show at 1:30 PM for a pre-concert discussion inside Heinz Hall.

Stay tuned for updates!

      Linda, I could not find parking anywhere. The lots were full and so were the streets. I'm not familiar with downtown. Had to turn back it was already 2:38. Next one... Hope u enjoyed.

    Hope everyone is looking forward to Sunday's show.

    Since we're meeting around 1:15-1:30 PM, someone at the Box Office said there might be enough time for them to modify my subscription so people can get the better seats for only $19. This will be charged to my account so please bring cash if possible. But if they don't have time to do it, we can still get the usual 15% off.

    I agree with Scott, however the show doesn't start until 2:30...not sure why the 2:30 time was changed to 2:00. I can't be there until 1:30 or 1:45. I can't commit to a PSO in 2014....that's thinking too far ahead for me!

      I think the 2 PM is so people have a chance to mingle a bit in the lobby before the concert starts or if people were meeting to buy tickets together and get a discount. Usually, PSO does a free pre-show discussion an hour before the classical music performances where they give an the audience some background about the composer, play some song samples to point out certain aspects, etc.

    I subscribe to the PSO so we have a couple options: First, if we meet at the Box Office, you can buy tickets at the door with a 15% subscriber discount -- and people have the option of sitting all together assuming they want the same price level seats, or they can get a discount for whatever seat they want. The cheapest seats in the upper balcony are $25 so with the 15% discount, this would be around $21.

    The second option -- and this is only for people that are 100% sure they are coming -- is for me to modify my subscription where the tickets would be printed in advance. These tickets are about $19 but are somewhat better seats.

    FYI, what would be ideal for 2014 is to pick a really popular PSO show where we had say 10-20+ RSVPs and then there wouldn't be much risk if went ahead and got some printed. We did this earlier this year and it worked out fine. Everyone got the better seat with the discount, I didn't get stuck with anything.

    Not sure how buying a block works. I wouldn't feel comfortable charging a bunch of tickets to my credit card and then be stuck with them if folks flake out. Mark, how have you handled this situation in the past?
