Randy Newman

  • Randy, the lyricist: slays with a wit equal to that of Mark Twain or Oscar Wilde, breaks your heart within one bluntly poetic and poetically blunt couplet, and rewards the listener for being able to take a joke
  • Randy, the composer and pianist: soars to the heights of Gershwin in his often lusciously produced albums, his scene-steering scores of Pixar films (including Toy Story and Monsters, Inc), and his grandiose, Coplandesque theme to The Natural
  • Randy, the award-winner: now has six Grammys, three Emmys, two Academy Awards, a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, and a spot in both the Songwriters Hall of Fame and the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame
  • Randy, the performer: delivers intimate, almost conversational performances of melodies dating back to the ’60s, pausing occasionally for behind-the-song anecdotes, all in a satirical voice that others try to imitate but never get right
  • Moments that may make you laugh, cry, and/or wince: if Randy plays “Short People” or “Political Science,” or “Sail Away”. . . or “Marie” (just bring a hankie)
  • Moments that may make your soar: every time the Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra (led by conductor Fawzi Haimor) lends its majesty to Randy’s ditties, ballads, and movie themes

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.
