A night for the whole family, the Pittsburgh Symphony is throwing a Classical BBQ on Saturday, July 11 and Sunday, August 2 in the Heinz Hall Summer Garden. Two festive evenings of great music and food, each Classical BBQ is filled with favorite orchestral works in a fun-filled atmosphere, including pre- and post-concert entertainment and a chance to mingle with the Pittsburgh Symphony musicians. The July Classical BBQ will feature highlights from the upcoming 2015-2016 classical season and the August event, “Summer Spectacular!”, will celebrate the musical color and virtuosity of the Pittsburgh Symphony musicians. Each BBQ concert is about one hour long with an outdoor party in the garden before the concert and live jazz after. Experience Tchaikovsky’s 1812 Overture at the July concert and Copland’s Fanfare for the Common Man at the August concert, along with popular works by Beethoven, Bernstein and many more. All tickets are $30 and include general admission to the concert, food, happy hour drink prices, and pre- and post-concert entertainment. Please note the BBQ begins at 6:30 PM and the concert begins at 7:30 PM. This event is general admission; use the BEST AVAILABLE option when buying tickets online.
