RESIDENT CONDUCTOR LAWRENCE LOH LEADS THE PITTSBURGH SYMPHONY ORCHESTRA IN TWO CONCERTS IN DEEP CREEK, MARYLAND

PITTSBURGH – The Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra (PSO) travels to Wisp Resort in Deep Creek, Maryland for two concerts led by Resident Conductor Lawrence Loh.  

On Friday, July 16, the Orchestra performs a concert of Broadway favorites including selections from Chicago, Cats, and Wicked. Vocalist Debbie Gravitte is featured soloist.  The following evening, Loh conducts a classical program of Brahms and Mozart.  PSO musicians Jennifer Conner and Rhian Kenny are featured in Cimarosa’s Concerto in G major for Two Flutes and Orchestra.

Prior to the concert on July 17, Lawrence Loh is giving a pre-concert lecture in the Crawford Room at Wisp Resort.  To purchase tickets ($35 adults, children 5 and under free) call 301.387.3082 or online at www.artsandentertainment.org/boxoffice.

The Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra has been a vital part of the City of Pittsburgh’s heritage for more than 100 years. With its noble history of the finest conductors and musicians and its strong commitment to artistic quality and excellence, audiences around the world have claimed the PSO as their orchestra of choice. In September 2008, the PSO welcomed its ninth Music Director Manfred Honeck. Beginning in the early 1900s with frequent performances in Canada, the PSO confirmed its ranking as a world-class orchestra, earning critical acclaim for each tour abroad. Its 34 international tours include 18 European tours, eight trips to the Far East and two to South America. In January 2004, the PSO became the first American orchestra to perform at the Vatican for Pope John Paul II, as part of the Pontiff’s Silver Jubilee celebration.

  1. Looking forward to going to Berlin next spring. Going to eat at Dunkin Donuts and food at Blockhouse. Going to take the tourist bus around Berlin and see Berlin Mauer. Aswell as just walking around in Tiergarden and perhaps visit the polar bear Knut at Tiergarden Zoo.
