Mercury Soul

Members of the Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra Electronica and classical music collide at Mercury Soul, a hybrid musical event that re-imagines the classical music experience in extraordinary spaces. Interspersed with thrilling performances by Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra musicians and the thumping beat of PSO's Composer of the Year and DJ Mason Bates, Mercury Soul gives audiences the freedom to roam and experience music and art installation in a club setting. Visual director Anne Patterson collaborates with CMU's School of Drama to create media and lighting design inspired by the music. No program book and plenty to drink: this is a 21st Century 'salon' at its best. This unique event will be held at STATIC in the Strip District at 1650 Smallman Street.
