WQED will rebroadcast both a 90-minute local version and the 60-minute national version of the locally produced “Tree of Life: A Concert for Peace and Unity,” presented and hosted by the Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra to honor the synagogue victims and first responders of the Oct. 27, 2018, massacre.
The national version originally aired on Dec. 11, 2018, as a one-hour special on PBS. It will air on Sunday, Oct. 27, at 7 p.m. The local version will air on Sunday, Oct. 27, at noon on WQED-TV.
The concert features PSO Music Director Manfred Honeck, Itzhak Perlman, PSO Principal Clarinetist Michael Rusinek and the Mendelssohn Choir of Pittsburgh. All artists donated their services for the performance.
The PSO’s performance at Heinz Hall was taped on Nov. 27, 2018, one month after the shooting at the Tree of Life building occurred, as part of the PSO’s “Music for the Spirit” series. pjc
