Concert will include Mozart’s ‘Requiem’
PITTSBURGH – The Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra (PSO) and Music Director Manfred Honeck announced Monday that the PSO will perform at New York’s famed Carnegie Hall in 2014 as part of the fourth Spring For Music festival.
Honeck and the PSO will close the festival on May 10, 2014 with a performance of Mozart’s Requiem. Details will be given at a later date. The festival runs May 5-10, 2014.
Spring For Music is an annual festival each May at Carnegie Hall celebrating and exhibiting the quality and creativity of North American orchestras. During its inaugural season, Spring For Music was categorized by the press as “bold,” “gripping,” “vibrant,” inspired,” “virtuosic,” “brilliant.” The New Yorker hailed it as “fresh at every turn,” while The New York Times stated that Spring For Music gives “power to the listener.”
The festival, which is presented in partnership with Carnegie Hall, began in 2011 and has made the commitment to continue yearly through 2014. Tickets originally priced at $25 for any seat in the house still remain at this very popular price.
Other orchestras performing in the 2014 festival include the New York Philharmonic (May 5), Seattle Symphony (May 6), Rochester Philharmonic Orchestra (May 7), Winnipeg Symphony (May 8), and Cincinnati Symphony and May Festival Chorus (May 9).
