The Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra’s annual Kraft Heinz Audience of the Future & EQT Student Side-By-Side event will be held on Tuesday, May 16, 2017 at 7:00 PM at Heinz Hall. 

Andrés Franco, James Cunningham IV and Devin Moore on WQED-FM

The Kraft Heinz Audience of the Future program invites local high school students to plan and implement a Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra concert. Once a month over the course of the school year, students visited Heinz Hall to select concert repertoire, write marketing and public relations plans, promote and sell tickets to the concert, learn about backstage and concert production, create multimedia to document and promote the program, practice sound recording techniques, and design interactive exhibits through the use of STEAM concepts and project-based learning. Students were coached by Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra staff members and local teaching artists, and proceeds from the concert benefit the arts and music programs of the participating schools.

The EQT Student Side-By-Side program gives aspiring young musicians the unique opportunity to rehearse and perform “side-by-side” their Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra counterparts on the Heinz Hall stage.  The program participants had rehearsals, coachings, performances, and workshops with PSO conductors and musicians.  Their months of hard work and practice will culminate in this final concert.

Join us at 6:00 PM for pre-concert exhibits showcasing the creativity of the Kraft Heinz Audience of the Future program, and stay after the concert for an ice cream and jazz reception, featuring the Shaler Area High School Jazz Band!
