The Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra has canceled its "Gladiator LIVE" concert at Heinz Hall, citing low ticket sales. The concert performance of the film music with vocalist Clara Sanabras and the Mendelssohn Choir of Pittsburgh would have been a U.S. premiere.
Tickets for the July 12 concert will be automatically refunded, the PSO said in a statement. Additional information is available at 412-392-4900.
The Philadelphia Orchestra will perform the program on July 18.
