Pittsburgh Jazz Orchestra Holiday ConcertSpecial Event
December 21, 2022 7:00 PM
When the Pittsburgh Jazz Orchestra formed in 2010, it was decided a Holiday show would be a programming must. Now, the Pittsburgh Jazz Orchestra Holiday Celebration has become a tradition for families all over the Greater Pittsburgh region as a way to take a break from the busy prep of the Season. For this performance the musicians of the Pittsburgh Jazz Orchestra render a new treatment on Holiday classics and turn the Holiday Season into a unique celebration of wonder, bliss, and merriment the whole family will enjoy.
This program is presented in partnership with MCG Jazz
