PSO to spring into festival at Carnegie Hall in 2014

January 24, 2012 12:00 am

The Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra is going back to Carnegie Hall in 2014 but in different fashion than it has before.

Instead of being solely presented by the famed venue, the PSO will be a part of a partnership with an acclaimed new series called "Spring for Music." It is an independent festival created to "celebrate and exhibit the quality and creativity of North American orchestras," with an emphasis on the affordable at $25 a ticket. The New Yorker hailed "Spring for Music" as "fresh at every turn," and The New York Times stated that it gives "power to the listener."

Music director Manfred Honeck and the PSO will close the festival on May 10, 2014, with a concert including Mozart's "Requiem."

The appearance will be the 71st for the PSO at Carnegie Hall and the second with Mr. Honeck (the first was in February 2010). The orchestra debuted there in February 1907 with Emil Paur conducting.
