Conductor Earl Lee leads the Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra in two outdoor concerts performing works by Italian composer Gioachino Rossini (1792-1868), Russian composer Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky (1840-1893) and German composer Johannes Brahms (1833-1897).

Each of the two evenings evening begin with a rolling snare from a rousing Rossini overture followed by  two movements from Brahms’ dramatic and sweeping Symphony No. 1, a true symphonic masterpiece.

In Tchaikovsky’s only violin concerto, Pittsburgh Symphony violinist Marta Krechkovsky takes center stage and shows why the lyrical beauty and fiery virtuosity of this work also makes it one of the most popular violin concertos.

Children five and under are free. A variety of food trucks — from savory to sweet — will be stationed at each concert.
