Pittsburgh Symphony Benefit Concert in Wilkinsburg

The PSO's ongoing series of low-cost community concerts continues next Tuesday. This one, at Wilkinsburg High School , kicks off the borough's 125th-anniversary festivities.

Tickets for the concert are $10 for adults and $5 for students, with ten adult tickets available for the discounted price of $75.

The concert, to be led by PSO assistant conductor Thomas Hong, will feature works by Mozart (the overture from The Magic Flute), George Bassman and Henri Tomasi, plus Edward Elgar's Enigma Variations.

The soloist is PSO trombonist James Nova. And be aware that because the school's stage is a bit smaller than the one at Heinz Hall, the concert won't feature the full orchestra. But as there'll still be 65 musicians on stage, you'll get more than your money's worth.

All ticket proceeds benefit the Wilkinsburg School District's music program. Since their inception, the PSO's community-engagement concerts in Wilkinsburg have raised more than $55,000, according to a press release.

The concert starts at 7 p.m. Tue., March 6. Tickets will be available at the door or by calling Wilkinsburg High School's music department, at 412-871-2282 or 412-371-9504, x 2717.
