PITTSBURGH—The Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra (PSO) has invited students, alumni, faculty and staff for a special Carnegie Mellon University Night at the Symphony at 8 p.m. Saturday, February 12. In honor of the partnership between Carnegie Mellon and the PSO, tickets will be offered at a discounted rate and the concert will be followed by a dessert buffet for PSO musicians and Carnegie Mellon guests.

This concert also celebrates the recent appointment of Sir Andrew Davis to the PSO's Artistic Leadership Team for the 2005/2006 season. Davis will conduct the "Sounds of Freedom" program, part of the Mellon Grand Classics concert series, for Carnegie Mellon University Night. The repertoire will include Beethoven's "Leonore Overture No. 3," Shostakovich's "Violin Concerto No. 1" and Prokofiev's "Symphony No. 6."

"Carnegie Mellon Night is a chance to celebrate the wonderful relationship between Carnegie Mellon and the Symphony through the performance of many of our leading artist faculty, on the very special occasion of Sir Andrew Davis's first concert since joining the Symphony," said Alan Fletcher, head of the Carnegie Mellon School of Music.

Discounted ticket prices will be $12 for Gallery, $17 for Family Circle and $25 for Orchestra seating. Tickets must be purchased at the University Center Information Desk by 2 p.m. Friday, February 11. For any additional information, please contact at 412-268-5765 or
