Orchestra season opens at the Mann - Pittsburgh and the Dead

With the c. 1960s Joshua Light Show turning and bubbling away above the Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra, the Mann Center Tuesday night opened its very-pop-oriented orchestral season. Guitarist Warren Haynes was guest for a "Jerry Garcia Symphonic Celebration," stirring an audience of about 4,400 to dance in the aisles. This slideshow captures some moments back stage and out in the house.
