Highmark Holiday Pops
Three local arts organizations—the PSO, Mendelssohn Choir, and Pittsburgh Ballet Theatre School—combine their respective art forms for what’s quickly becoming a holiday tradition. Dubbed the Highmark Holiday Pops, the evening sees the whole gang of performers playing, singing, and dancing their way through beloved holiday songs, from the jangly “Sleigh Ride” to the more spiritual “Joy to the World.” Pittsburgh documentarian Rick Sebak—Emmy-nominated for his work on Mr. Rogers—narrates the program, spinning whimsical yuletide yarns and setting the scene for the arrival of Santa Claus.
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.
