Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra Tchaikovsky Festival
Seeing the Italian conductor (Gianandrea Noseda) walk out on stage waving the Terrible Towel was an unforgettable sight. Any other day, we’d be cracking a joke about how Pittsburgh can’t even appreciate the symphony without incorporating something Steelers related. But, it was Super Bowl Eve – not just any other day.
The Symphony’s performance of Tchaikovsky’s No. 5 was equally unforgettable.
You may have missed the first part of the Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra’s Tchaikovsky Festival, but it’s not too late to catch the finale. Manfred Honeck will be leading the concert at Heinz Hall on February 10, 11, and 12, with a special performance by 20 year old Serge Zimmerman (son of famous violinist Frank Peter Zimmerman).
