Join the Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra for its third annual "Tribute" concert- a symphonic celebration of African American culture. This celebratory performance showcases a fusion of musical styles from the orchestral, jazz, gospel, and spiritual music traditions that reflect the diversity of American music. Hear the PSO with jazz pianist Marcus Roberts and his Trio perform James P. Johnson's "Yamekraw," as well as George Gershwin's famous Rhapsody in Blue as you've never heard it before - with a jazz trio twist! This special performance also features the amazing sounds of the Mt. Ararat Baptist Church Mass Choir performing an arrangement of Richard Smallwood's "Bless the Lord" and the anthem "Lift Ev'ry Voice and Sing."
Arrive early at 7pm and stay after the concert to experience the Hill House Association's "Live at the Hurricane," a jazz combo performance accompanied by projected images by Pittsburgh photographer Teenie Harris in the Heinz Hall lobby.
