Symphony using Kickstarter to get to Carnegie Hall

The Pittsburgh Symphony is turning to Kickstarter to help pay the travel, lodging and other costs of traveling to New York City to play at Carnegie Hall on May 10. Manfred Honeck will lead a program featuring his “Mozart's Requiem and Death in Words and Music,” a concert which will close the Spring for Music Festival.

Among the rewards are admission to the final Heinz Hall rehearsal, free tickets to the Carnegie Hall concert, and a meet and greet with Honeck and narrator F. Murray Abraham at Carnegie Hall.
