The first concert, “Bernstein in Pittsburgh” under the direction of Manfred Honeck, features mezzo soprano Jennifer Johnson Cano.

Honeck will lead the orchestra in a centennial celebration of the birth of American composer Leonard Bernstein. The evening will be filled with pieces Bernstein conducted with the Pittsburgh Symphony early in his career, including works by Beethoven, Haydn and Stravinsky, as well as Bernstein’s own First Symphony, which the Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra premiered in 1944.
