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.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers.
We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING.
