The concert at Wilkinsburg High School is a great way to see the symphony at low cost and also benefit the school’s music programs.
Resident conductor Fawzi Haimor will lead the PSO in a program including works by Beethoven, Leonard Bernstein, Aaron Copland and more. Soloists include PSO trumpeter Chad Winkler (with a Haydn concerto) and vocalist Katy Williams, singing selections including “Over the Rainbow.” And students from the Wilkinsburg school district and Obama High School will perform “Take Time in Life.”
Friday’s show is the 11th annual Community Engagement Concert in Wilkinsburg. The concerts have raised more than $60,000 over the years.
Tickets are $5 for students K-12 and $10 for adults (or $75 for a group of 10 adults).
