Jean Horne & Christine Thompson - Symphony Splendor
Tribune Review Fanfare writer emeritas Jean Horne joins Mendelssohn Choir regular Christine Thompson and Jim Cunningham to speak about the work of the Pittsburgh Symphony Association in creating Symphony Splendor taking place Sunday June 27th from 11am to 5pm. The event features 16 members of the Pittsburgh Symphony and other musical guests performing in 12 glorious and often unknown gardens in Shadyside and Squirrel Hill. The proceeds benefit the Pittsburgh Symphony in a self-guided rain or shine tour with check-in at the Mansions on Fifth - 5105 Fifth Avenue. Jean and Christine tell us we'll see "12 urban sanctuaries that are ablaze with floral fireworks, lavish beds and borders, soothing spaces with splashing water and darting elegant fish. Elegant and informal gardens where wonders never cease including one of the most talked about botanical marvels - a Smithsonian Institution designated garden."
