PRINCIPAL POPS CONDUCTOR MARVIN HAMLISCH LEADS PSO WITH SPECIAL GUEST SHA NA NA

PITTSBURGH – Marvin Hamlisch, the Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra (PSO) and special guest, Sha Na Na, take a trip to The Fabulous ‘50s, for the first PNC Pops concerts of the season.

Hamlisch and the Orchestra kick off the PNC Pops Season with concerts Thursday, Oct. 7 through Sunday, Oct. 10 at Heinz Hall. The program repeats on Monday, Oct. 11 at 8 p.m. at the Scottish Rite Cathedral in New Castle.

Post-concert on Saturday, Oct. 9, Heinz Hall is transformed into a 1950s sock hop where patrons can kick off their saddle shoes and rock around the clock! 

Sha Na na, one of the longest running bands in popular music, is known for such hits as “Whole Lotta Shakin,“ “In the Still of the Night“ and “At the Hop.“

The PSO would like to recognize and thank PNC for their 2010-2011 title sponsorship of PNC Pops. Bobby Rahal Automotive Group is the Official Automotive Group of the PSO. Fairmont Pittsburgh is the Official Hotel of the PSO.

Tickets start at $20 for the Heinz Hall concerts and at $16 for the Scottish Rite Cathedral concert, and can be purchased by calling the Heinz Hall box office at 412.392.4900, or by visiting the PSO online at www.pittsburghsymphony.org.
