Kenny G replaces Botti in Pittsburgh Pops concerts

Thursday, March 21, 2013, 12:15 p.m.

Grammy-winning jazz saxophonist Kenny G will solo with the Pittsburgh Symphony Pops at its final concerts of the season. He'll replace trumpeter Chris Botti, who withdrew because of a change in his touring schedule.

Kenny G has sold more than 75 million copies of 23 albums thus far in his career, and is known for his mixture of R&B, pop, Latin and jazz styles, as well as his technical chops.

The concerts start at 7:30 p.m. June 13, 8 p.m. June 14 and 15, and 2:30 p.m. June 16 at Heinz Hall, Downtown. Admission is $20 to $98.
