Spring is in the Air!

The Philharmonic to feature Beethoven’s mighty Pastoral Symphony in March

While the weather outside may be frightful, the Pittsburgh Philharmonic is already hard at work preparing for its March concerts, when we will celebrate Spring is in the Air! Our March 11 and 12 performances will feature the winners of our annual Young Artist Concerto Competition and our annual Young Composer Contest.

Our 40th anniversary season continues by celebrating the coming of spring with Beethoven’s Symphony No. 6. Come along as we journey with the magnificent composer through his musical depiction of the Viennese countryside.

Join us on March 11 and 12 as we welcome spring back to Pittsburgh!

Toys for Tots!

Toys for Tots and Holiday Pops a Big Success!

The Phil partners again with Toys for Tots at our Holiday Pops Concerts

The Pittsburgh Philharmonic collected toys at its Holiday Pops concerts for the U.S. Marine Corps Toys for Tots program. All patrons who brought a toy to either of our December performances received a free or reduced price ticket to an upcoming Philharmonic concert.

Now in is 69th year, the Toys for Tots program’s mission is to “deliver, through a new toy at Christmas, a message of hope to less fortunate youngsters that will assist them in becoming responsible, productive, patriotic citizens.” More information on this exceptional charity can be found here.
