For $24, today's side deal gets you an orchestra ticket to see Brandi Carlile perform live at the Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra's Heinz Hall on Wednesday, June 30, at 7:30 p.m. (a $40 value). Seating will be in the orchestra section's rows E–Z. Call ahead or stop by the Heinz Hall box office before the performance date to secure your tickets.

As a rising strummer who opened her voice up at the age of eight, Carlile started her career as a backup for an Elvis impersonator before eventually performing alongside the Indigo Girls, Chris Isaak, Tori Amos, and Shawn Colvin. This concert positions the genre-jumping songstress alongside the most epic of backing bands, the Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra. Resistant to labels, Carlile's jams have been called country, folk, pop, and all the blended permutations in between. On June 30, she'll likely be playing a number of selections from her recent third album, Give Up the Ghost, which debuted at number 26 on the Billboard 200.

As you take your seat, marvel at Heinz Hall, an anchor of the Cultural District. This 1995 renovation was built upon its original 1927 foundation with a variety of acoustic-enhancing features such as risers and a new sound reflector, along with aesthetic improvements such as new paint and fine gold leafing throughout.

Reviews

Brandi Carlile's 2009 album, Give Up the Ghost, received a good review from Paste magazine and peaked at #26 on the Billboard 200 chart. The album was also nominated for the GLAAD Award for Outstanding Music Artist.

  • Writhing and burning and staring at life straight down the barrel, Give Up the Ghost is exactly the album Carlile needed to make at this moment. The production is thick but elegant, applied with full knowledge that the songs could exist beautifully in a sparse acoustic-strummed daze, but that they deserve more than that. – Rachael Maddux, Paste
  • Brandi Carlile knows how to wring every last emotion from a lyric. On her third studio album, "Give Up the Ghost," the singer/songwriter channels heartache, fear, nostalgia and joy in nearly the same breath, creating a vivid pastiche of alt-folk pop. – Monica Herrera, Billboard

The Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra's performances receive good reviews regularly, recently receiving praise from the New York Times, Washington Post, and Pittsburgh Tribune-Review.

  • [The] performance was an important part of re-establishing the orchestra as a premiere player on the world stage...a process that has already included tours to Asia and Europe. – Mark Kanny, Pittsburgh Tribune-Review

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.
