About This Performance
A toe-tapping kick-off to the holiday season, this weekend features some of the most popular works from Vienna, including the best pieces by the Strauss family, in a concert that is fun, festive and perfect for the whole family! As a special treat, dancers from the Pittsburgh Ballet Theatre School will dance on stage during several of the waltzes and polkas. The heart of the concert is Rossini’s Theme and Variations for Clarinet and Orchestra and Weber’s Clarinet Concerto No.1, featuring a virtuosic performance by the Pittsburgh Symphony’s clarinet star Michael Rusinek. Each of these pieces showcases the clarinet’s amazing, dynamic range of sound. This lively musical program will perfectly accompany your family’s Thanksgiving celebrations!
