I got my tickets yesterday.  There were at least 400 people in front of me in line, so I waited from 10:04 to 11:17 before I concluded my purchase.  By then, only seats in the gallery were available in the quantity I wanted, but that's why I keep binoculars in the car.

WILLIAMS POSTPONED AGAIN!  This disclaimer now shows up at the PSO concert calendar:

For ticket holders: we are still actively looking to schedule all guest artists to perform with the Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra at a future date. However, we believe it is best to cancel these concerts until we can announce a new date for the event. Should we reschedule these appearances, those who held tickets to these concerts will be offered a priority presale opportunity to purchase tickets in advance of the general public. At this time, ticketholders will receive a refund. The PSO will reach out to all with new information as it becomes available and appreciates your patience and understanding.

But Pittsburgh is in a state with a scared governor who will only permit a small percentage of indoor seating, something like 15%.  So unless they want to move this to an outside venue where we can toss a beach ball, I'm okay to have my refund. 

 

Besides, Pittsburgh makes me drunk and then it rains.

Renowned composer and conductor John Williams, superstar violinist Anne-Sophie Mutter and Music Director Manfred Honeck bring a special program of Williams’ music to Heinz Hall for a one-night-only event with the Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra.
 
Under the baton of Manfred Honeck, Anne-Sophie Mutter and the PSO will perform John Williams’ Violin Concerto No. 2, written especially for her. Then, John Williams takes the podium to lead the second half of the program which features selections from some of his most popular film scores. It’s an all-star combination as Ms. Mutter and Mr. Williams share these special arrangements as featured on their acclaimed Across the Stars album.

Just got 2 tickets to this.  This will be my 6th time seeing him in concert and I've never been to Pittsburgh so I will make the drive up there and also catch a Pirates game the following night.
