Supporting 25 local nonprofits, the PSO Community Partners Concert fills Heinz Hall with classical and R & B sounds. En Vogue's "funky divas" headline the night, interlacing their sultry vocals with accompanying harmonies from the symphony, led by Resident Conductor Lawrence Loh. Though the Grammy-nominated quartet rose to fame in the early '90s with megahits such as "My Lovin' (You're Never Gonna Get It)," they're patterned on a classic pop template that hearkens back to the girl groups of the '50s and '60s. Starting the show, 2012 Sphinx Competition winner Gabriel Cabezas shows off his virtuosic cello chops, which he's honed onstage with the likes of Yo-Yo Ma. The barely two-decade-old virtuoso belies his age with thoughtful interpretations of string standards.

Converted from an opulent movie palace into the Pittsburgh Symphony's home in 1971 when Americans swore off movies in favor of high culture forever, the magnificent Heinz Hall delights audiences with stellar acoustics. Two 15-foot crystal chandeliers and an array of Levanto marble columns cast a glow over the Great Hall.

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.
