About This Performance

In 1896, Grover Cleveland had settled into his second term. The Dow Jones Average was established.  F. Scott Fitzgerald was born. John Philip Sousa penned “The Stars and Stripes Forever.”

And on February 27, 1896, the Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra played its very first notes as an ensemble.

Fast-forward exactly 120 years to the day of that first performance and the Pittsburgh Symphony returns to the spot where it all began – Oakland's Carnegie Music Hall – for a commemorative concert to celebrate this historic milestone. The Pittsburgh Symphony will perform significant pieces from its history, including works performed at the first concert in 1896. Guest artist Jennifer Koh, violin, Principal Horn William D. Caballero, Principal Trumpet George Vosburgh and Principal Tuba Craig Knox will be featured on the program, which includes music from Andre Previn, Beethoven and Leonard Bernstein, among others.
