The Pittsburgh Symphony OrchestraMonday, November 27, 2017 @ 8 p.m.
Acclaimed opera and theater Director Sam Helfrich joins the Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra for the third in a series of innovative collaborations bringing to life great musical masterpieces through a provocative and modern-day lens.
Following acclaimed and widely successful staged interpretations of Handel’s Messiah, and Bach’s St. John Passion, Helfrich returns this season to illuminate the six most famous days in all of history with a theatrical presentation of Haydn’s beloved Creation.
The Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra, in partnership with the City of Asylum, has created a series of five events in the 2017-18 season that will employ and reflect the expertise and experiences of the artists of these two innovative groups. Themes and content have been jointly created to incorporate composers, musicians, poets, writers, and artists from Pittsburgh and around the globe. Hosted by PSO Associate Conductors, each session ties into a theme on a Pittsburgh Symphony BNY Mellon Grand Classical performance and attendees will receive discounts to these concerts.
