We conclude another spectacular Pops season with a one of a kind evening: an audience with the Academy Award-winning composer Howard Shore. The Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra celebrates the outstanding career and achievements of a true icon, with performances of his best known scores and live interviews, conducted by acclaimed film music writer Jon Burlingame, with the composer from the stage. Audiences will thrill to the music from his legendary collaboration with Peter Jackson on The Lord of the Rings and The Hobbit trilogies, as well as scores from films like The Aviator, Mrs. Doubtfire, The Silence of the Lambs, Hugo and many more. This is an epic evening filled with amazing music and the composer’s own insights, a unique experience that movie fans will not want to miss!
