Save Our Symphony Pittsburgh will team with members of the Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra for a benefit concert at 7 p.m. Oct. 7 at Rodef Shalom Temple in Shadyside.

The program, which includes selections from Bolling's Suite for Flute and Jazz Piano, Dohnanyi's Rualia Hungarica and Vivaldi's Concerto No. 1 (Spring), features Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra musicians Lorna McGhee, Jennifer Orchard, Jeffrey Grubbs, Andrew Reimer and Marylene Gringas-Roy.

A post-concert reception will follow, sponsored by host committee members Millie and Gary Ryan, Susan Hunt, Etsuro and Yoko Motoyama, Owen Cantor and Connie and Mike Phillips.

The performance will raise funds for the Save Our Symphony Pittsburgh Fund at the Pittsburgh Foundation.

“This is our third public event and our fifth concert since we created Save Our Symphony earlier this year,” Geoffrey McGovern, vice-chair of the Save Our Symphony board, says in a news release. “We formed Save Our Symphony to celebrate these world-class musicians and ensure their place in Pittsburgh for generations to come. So far, the response has been overwhelmingly supportive. Pittsburgh knows great music and loves its Pittsburgh Symphony musicians.”

Save Our Symphony was formed by a group of symphony supporters on the heels of last year's muscians' strike. Tickets are $50, $20 for students
