Jonathan Bailey Holland, the Jack G. Buncher Head of the School of Music at Carnegie Mellon, has already made a list of Pittsburgh performances he’s looking forward to hearing. He shares his anticipation with TABLE readers.
Heinz Hall, June 16-18
This Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra concert features two of the master orchestrator Resphigi’s works, as well as a new, co-commissioned work by one of today’s most sought-after composers, Jessie Montgomery.
Heinz Hall, June 9-11
See and hear the Pittsburgh Ballet and the ballet orchestra perform works by Ravel, Gershwin, and a new arrangement of Strauss, created by the Pittsburgh Symphony music director, Manfred Honeck.
5884 Ellsworth Avenue
This is the place to experience the current iteration of Pittsburgh’s jazz legacy.
Highmark Stadium, September 15-17
Lineup to be announced, but if last year’s lineup is any indication… (It included the likes of Chief Adjuah, formerly Christian Scott, Nate Smith + KINFOLK, Gonzalo Rubalcaba, and so many others.)
Mozart’s Der Schauspieldirektor and Menotti’s The Telephone
WQED Studio A, October 11-14
Come and enjoy this double bill of comic Mozart combined with Gian Carlo Menotti’s opera that unknowingly spoofed our current obsession with the “telephone.”
Violins of Hope
Posner Center at Carnegie Mellon University, October 7-November 21
This treasured collection of instruments were played by Jewish musicians during the Holocaust, offering powerful stories of hope and perseverance.
