Pittsburgh Symphony to Present ALEC'S PLAYLIST Curated by Alec Baldwin, 4/16
The Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra and Music Director Manfred Honeck present "Alec's Playlist" on Saturday, April 16 at 8 p.m. at Heinz Hall. This innovative one-night-only concert experience celebrates the power of music to transform a moment, a scene and even a lifetime.
Actor, director and producer Alec Baldwin, a passionate lover and supporter of great music, will curate this musical celebration with the Pittsburgh Symphony under the baton of Maestro Honeck. Baldwin, who helped shape the program with Honeck, will host the evening, revealing his favorite performances and moments in music, how and why classical music is so important to him, and how various pieces have transformed moments in his life. The program will feature works by Beethoven, Berlioz, Stravinsky and Mahler (a particular favorite of Baldwin's), among others.
Because sharing the joy of classical music with the next generation is important to Baldwin, he has generously donated tickets to the Pittsburgh Symphony to be used for students. The Pittsburgh Symphony is working with the Pittsburgh Promise to give the tickets away to students, who will be seated in a special section for the concert.
Tickets, which range in price from $25 to $105, go on sale January 27. Tickets are available online at pittsburghsymphony.org/alec, by phone at 412-392-4900 or at the Heinz Hall box office at 600 Penn Ave., downtown.
