Where can you hear Chopin and Mozart mixed with The Beatles and Guns n’ Roses? No, this isn’t your iPod on shuffle or your Spotify playlist on steroids, but rather a musical mélange that must be experienced live.
Always reaching for new sonic horizons, the FUSE@PSO series will go out with a bang at its highly-anticipated season finale. Symphonic sounds, the British Invasion, classic rock and more will collide when the latest FUSE concept heats up Heinz Hall.
With PSO conductor and series creator Steve Hackman at the helm, audiences will be treated to ear-opening hybrids showcasing the classically-trained string trio, Time for Three. Featuring Nick Kendall (violin), Charles Yang (violin) and Canaan Meyer (double bass), the trio has performed with the Philadelphia Orchestra and Dancing with the Stars.
Dubbed “Mash-Up Mix-Down,” the genre-bending production will spotlight imaginative mashups of Britney Spears and Vivaldi, Led Zeppelin and Henry Purcell, Dvořák and Dave Matthews and much more.
Arrive at 5 p.m. for happy hour in Heinz Hall’s tranquil garden, including socializing with the musicians and specially-priced drinks. The concert starts at 6:30 p.m. and it’s open seating with drinks allowed.
