Concerts in the Parks - South Park
The Pittsburgh Symphony presents its annual summer county parks concerts — two free concerts during the Fourth of July weekend that take the symphony out of Heinz Hall and into the great outdoors! This year’s concerts are offered at South Park on July 1 and at Hartwood Acres on July 2. These concerts are part of the Allegheny County Summer Concert Series. These performances are brought to the community, in part, through the generosity of the Pennsylvania Department of Community & Economic Development, the Pennsylvania Council on the Arts and the Allegheny Regional Asset District. Admission to these concerts is free. No reservation is required.
