Join Kellen Gray and the Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra for the fourth Lift Every Voice concert!
After two years, we come back together in Heinz Hall to experience music’s power to bring us forward. Kendra Ross and Garfield Lemonius host this one-night-only celebration of dynamic contemporary artists, including the world premiere of As I Please, a multimedia work by composer Kathryn Bostic, filmmaker Njaimeh Njie, and writer Jessica Lanay. Josh Jones, alumnus of the Paul J. Ross Fellowship program, makes his PSO solo debut performing Vivaldi’s Concerto for Piccolo – on marimba, Jasiri X performs “Glory” from the movie Selma, artists Mikael Owunna and Marques Redd present “Playing the Cosmic Strings,” musically animated by Jessie Montgomery’s Strum for String Orchestra, and more!
