Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra's A Concert For Peace And Unity' to Air On PBS

By: Nov. 21, 2018

The Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra's "Music for the Spirit: A Concert for Peace and Unity," a free concert for the community honoring the Tree of Life Synagogue victims and First Responders, will be recorded at Heinz Hall for future television broadcast nationally on PBS. WQED's production of Tree of Life: A Concert for Peace and Unity is made possible with funding provided by the Corporation for Public Broadcasting. Tickets to the concert on Nov. 27 are no longer available, so we're pleased to announce that those who are unable to attend will get to experience the concert via the television broadcast.

This performance of remembrance and reverence aims to provide an opportunity for the Pittsburgh community to find comfort, strength and solace through music, hope and unity.

In addition to the PBS broadcast on Dec. 11, the concert will also be broadcast live online on Nov. 27 at the Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra's Facebook page and on local Pittsburgh radio station WQED-FM 89.3.
