Leaving PPG Wintergarden, I made my way over to Heinz Hall. The garden adjacent to the building still had roses blooming.
In December, it is very unusual to see such a flash of color.
This is the sixth street entrance to Heinz Hall. All of the doors have green canopies above them.
Above the doors inside the canopies there are relief carvings.
I took several pictures of the stonework near the top of the building.
Then looking down from the balcony.
This is what the canopies look like from inside the building. The windows let in some natural light and you can see the designs.
Also from the second level, a picture of one of the two main foyers.
I arrived in the hall in time to listen to the preconcert lecture. I had an enjoyable time listening to the program. If you are curious, I heard Haydn’s Symphony No. 68, Mason Bates’ Violin Concerto with Anne Akiko Meyers as the soloist, and Saint-Saens’s Symphony No. 3. Leonard Slatkin was conducting.
After the concert, I retraced my steps back across the river.
I was once again swimming against a sea of Steelers’ fans
to meet everyone and head for home.
