Sci-Fi Spectacular with George Takei
George Takei knows something about science fiction. He first rose to fame on Star Trek as the Enterprise’s helmsman Hikaru Sulu, and continues to win over fans today with the witty and thoughtful content he shares on social media. Now he comes to the stage as the host of Sci-Fi Spectacular, an evening of music from science-fiction films and television shows. Jack Everly conducts the Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra as they play sweeping selections from E.T., 2001: A Space Odyssey, and Star Trek. Guest vocalists, including the Mendelssohn Choir of Pittsburgh and Kristen Plumley, lend their pipes to the program, and special effects and costumes round out the extraterrestrial experience.
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.
