A Grand Finale with Yuja Wang - with Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra at Heinz Hall

Please join Manfred Honeck as the Grand Classics[masked] Season closes with the brilliant young Chinese virtuoso Yuja Wang.

If you've never seen Yuja Wang before, this will be a remarkable concert that you won't want to miss!!

Yuja Wang's stunning performances have drawn international acclaim. For example,  

“Yuja Wang has a practical superhuman keyboard technique with artistic eloquence that is second to none” -San Francisco Chronicle


About This Performance
Manfred Honeck closes the season with the young Chinese virtuoso Yuja Wang who will perform Tchaikovsky’s First Piano Concerto. Its recognizable opening is sure to put a smile on your face that lasts throughout this lush and treasured piece.

The concert will also include Shostakovich’s Symphony No. 5 which is a Russian masterpiece with deep meaning for the composer and his country – a grand finale.

Discount Ticket Offer
Depending on how many people sign up, we will have some really nice discounts (15-50%) with the expected discount tickets in the range of only $15-$21 depending on where you sit and how many people are attending with the group. I'll let everyone know there options a couple days before the show.

Pre-Concert and Post-Concert Meetup Activities
Because this wonderful concert occurs so close to the nearby Pittsburgh JazzLive International and Three Rivers Arts Festival, we will have a chance for a full afternoon of fantastic music and other activities -- both before and after at concert at Heinz Hall.

It is suggested that people arrive to the Cultural District early so you can enjoy some lively jazz outside with the Sean Jones Quartet beginning at 1:15 PM at the Penn Avenue II stage (near Benedum) which is less than 2 blocks from Heinz Hall. For a complete line-up of the Pittsburgh JazzLive International, please visit

    Mark I am very interested in the performance. Sounds like a good day. Are there group tickets still available? All I see is what is online. Is there a special promo code? Where will everyone be meeting up after the event? Thank you.

    It will be very busy in the Cultural District on Sunday with all the shows, arts festival, jazz festival, etc. so I'd suggest arriving early especially for parking. But if you live near public transportation (T, bus), this should be fine.
