Pittsburgh Youth Symphony Orchestra -- Winter Concert (Free)

Please join the Pittsburgh Youth Symphony Orchestra (PYSO) for the annual free Winter Concert at Heinz Hall.

The PYSO concerts provide audiences with a great way to experience classical music in a beautiful setting while providing opportunities for some of our region's most talented young musicians. For over 68 years, PYSO alumni have gone on to prominent musical careers, with many  of them winning positions in major symphony orchestras throughout the world! And the Pittsburgh region should take great pride that the PYSO will be touring Austria, Slovakia, and the Czech Republic during 2014.

The PYSO concerts are usually about two hours long, including intermission. This year's Winter Concert features the following compositions:

  Rimsky Korsakov - Russian Easter Overture 

  Bizet - March of the Toreadors, from Carmen - led by conducting competition winner Yani Quemado 

  Copland - Promise of the Living, from The Tender Land 

  Mahler - Totenfeier

While this concert is FREE, tickets are still required for all guests in order to help with the overall planning/staffing/logistics given the Heinz Hall seating capacity. Please Click here to order and print your free tickets before arriving to the show.

    Hope everyone is looking forward to tonight's free PYSO concert at Heinz Hall. If anyone is interested in getting together before the concert, we can plan to initially meet inside the Starbuck's directly across from the Heinz Hall at 5:45 PM. For those interested in a quick dinner or drink, people can walk to the nearby Christos Greek/Mediterranean restaurant 1/2-block away at 130 6th Street which is affordable and sometimes offers complimentary homemade wine with dinner.

    While some may enjoy dinner/drink at Christos, another option is for people to gather at the Starbuck's directly across from the Heinz Hall at 6:50 PM sharp and then walk over to the Box Office to pick up your tickets.

    We'll then mingle inside the upper lobby/balcony area (adjacent to the upstairs bar)

    If we haven't met before, I'll be wearing something easy to spot -- brown coat, red sweater, khaki pants, scarf and glasses.
