The Jerry Garcia Symphonic Celebration will have its local debut with the Pittsburgh Symphony on June 18 at Heinz Hall.

The tribute to the Grateful Dead's iconic leader, conducted by Fawzi Haimor, will feature singer and guitarist Warren Haynes performing Garcia's compositions and the standards that were part of Grateful Dead shows.

Haynes was a long-time guitarist with the Allman Brothers Band, a founding member of Gov't Mule, and often performed with members of the Grateful Dead after Garcia's death in 1995.

The concert will start at 7:30 p.m. June 18 at Heinz Hall, Downtown. Tickets are $30 to $78. Details: 412-392-4900 or www.pittsburghsymphony.org.
