125th Anniversary Celebration

Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra’s 125th Anniversary Celebration Digital Premiere
Saturday, February 27, 2021 at 7:30 PM

Join us on the night of the actual 125th anniversary of our first concert, Saturday, February 27, 2021.  The 125th Anniversary Celebration Digital Premiere will showcase the 125 year history of the PSO, chamber music performances with PSO musicians and much more.  Your presence will help support the largest fundraising night of the year for our Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra in such an incredibly difficult and unexpected year.  Funds raised from these events support the Pittsburgh Symphony’s Learning and Community Engagement programs that impact more than 80,000 children and adults every year.

Please join us for an amazing night of music and help us create another record-breaking fundraiser for your Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra! Your support nurtures a love of music in young people, and creates meaningful artistic experiences throughout the Pittsburgh community. This 125th Anniversary Celebration will help launch our Orchestra into the next 125 years.
