Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra presents Beethoven In Your Neighborhood: String Quartet No. 16 in F Major, Opus 135
June 29 @ 5:30 pm – 7:00 pm
The Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra invites you to experience the musical genius of Ludwig van Beethoven through a free concert series! “Beethoven In Your Neighborhood: The Library Project” is a groundbreaking effort that features Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra musicians performing each of Beethoven’s 16 string quartets at nine Carnegie Library of Pittsburgh branches and six other county libraries funded by Andrew Carnegie.
This final concert of the series takes place at the Andrew Carnegie Free Library & Music Hall, one of only four libraries in the country that Carnegie endowed. We celebrate the conclusion of the series with Beethoven’s final quartet, No. 16 in F Major, written in the Viennese countryside during the last months of his life and bearing Beethoven’s signature farewell: “Must it be? It must be!”
“Ludwig van Beethoven and Andrew Carnegie each changed the human experience in revolutionary ways. The Pittsburgh Symphony is thrilled to partner with Carnegie Library of Pittsburgh, Allegheny County Library Association and MuseumLab for this deep community engagement of music and community spaces that are each as relevant and influential today as when they were created,” said Melia Tourangeau, president and CEO of the Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra.
Reservations: Advance reservations for The Library Project concerts are open to the public at www.pittsburghsymphony.org/BIYN. While reservations are suggested, they are not required to attend these performances.
