Pittsburgh Symphony to perform with Sting in January 2023

Posted on: August 3, 2022

“When legendary British singer Sting visits Pittsburgh, he’ll be playing with local talent,” writes Jeremy Reynolds in Tuesday’s (8/2) Pittsburgh Post-Gazette. “For two nights in January, the 9th and 10th, the Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra will welcome the former singer of The Police to Heinz Hall for a pair of concerts celebrating his greatest hits, ranging from ‘Roxanne’ and ‘Next To You’ to ‘Every Breath You Take’ and ‘Fields of Gold.’ … Sting has been experimenting with orchestra reimaginings of his catalog since a 2008 collaboration with the Chicago Symphony Orchestra. He has toured since 2010 with these symphonic interpretations of his hits. January will mark his first collaboration with the PSO. ‘Sting’s charisma and utterly unforgettable hits reimagined with symphonic orchestrations will make for an irresistible combination with the brilliant musicians of the Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra,’ said Melia Tourangeau, symphony president and CEO, in a release.”
