Broadway and Beyond with Brian Stokes Mitchell
Fresh off the Great White Way, Tony-winning baritone Brian Stokes Mitchell joins the Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra and the All-Star College Chorus for an evening of classic Broadway tunes. He re-embodies his most iconic characters to sing hits from shows such as Man of La Mancha, Kiss Me Kate, and Ragtime, and takes a step off that famed theatrical street to share a few of his personal favorite melodies. And Mitchell’s voice goes metaphorically toe-to-toe with the accompanying orchestra—in the words of the New York Times’ Stephen Holder, “Mr. Mitchell commands a singularly thunderous baritone whose size matches the egos of [his] vainglorious stage characters…You tremble before its visceral impact.”<p>
Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra
Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra was founded in 1896, and its reputation was as big as its sound right from the start. Andrew Carnegie was an early backer, and reportedly claimed that it was the best orchestra in the country. More than a century later, it still enjoys its status as a nationally renowned organization. And the PSO continues to take pride in its acclaim—perhaps expanding on Carnegie's earlier view, current Music Director Manfred Honeck called the company "one of the world's finest orchestras."
The long-lived PSO makes its home in an equally historic venue. Converted from an opulent movie palace in 1971, when Americans swore off movies in favor of high culture, Heinz Hall proves itself an exceptional music venue. Fine acoustics please the ears, while eyes take in glittering chandeliers and glints of gold leaf.
