Virtual Event by Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra
It’s a Broadway-Jazz Standard-American Songbook meet up, as Principal Pops Conductor Byron Stripling and the Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra welcome world-renowned double bassist and jazz vocalist Nicki Parrott to Heinz Hall in her Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra debut. The toe-tapping, finger-snapping program shines the spotlight on the music of great early 20th century composers, including George Gershwin ("Fascinating Rhythm"), Irving Berlin ("Alexander's Ragtime Band"), and Isham Jones ("It Had To Be You"), that have the timeless melodies and rhythms that continue to lift our spirits today.
