Pittsburgh's First Night
What are you doing New Year's Eve?
We are very excited to announce that we will be performing alongside the one and only Cello Fury at the Byham Theater as part of Pittsburgh's First Night presented by Highmark and the Pittsburgh Cultural Trust! We're bringing back some old favorites and presenting a new ballet to the rock cello group's music for the occasion!
First Night is the biggest New Year's Eve celebration for the city of Pittsburgh. Arts-focused and family-friendly, it is the single-largest day celebration in the area with 150 events at nearly 50 indoor and outdoor locations in the downtown Cultural District. This event attracts close to 50,000 people a year!
Besides us dancing at the Byham, see theater, hear live music, take part in hands-on activities, watch a parade and see fireworks, countdown to midnight and ring in the new year as the Future of Pittsburgh Ball is raised!
We will be presenting our show with Cello Fury at 3 different times: 6:30, 8:45, and 10:15.
To take part in all of these festivities, be sure to buy your admission button. They are $8 in advance, $10 at the door, and free for children under five. You will also have to register your buttons to reserve free seat vouchers to our performances and any other acts indoors. This keeps the theaters from filling over capacity. Reservations are first-come, first-serve!
This is sure to be a night to remember! So come ring in 2015 here at First Night!
