Great Gatsby at Greystone


Pittsburgh Symphony Association’s Salon, called, “Great Gatsby at Greystone,” will be held this year in the Shadyside mansion built by Michael Late Benedum.  (Reservations and nformation:  https://www.PittsburghSymphonyAssociation.org.  Only 150 tickets will be sold for the Sunday, June 2, dinner and chamber concert. All proceeds will be directly donated to Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra.) 

Michael L. Benedum, gained fame and fortune as an oil and gas investor around the world. In 1911, he purchased eight acres high on a hill with spectacular views overlooking Shadyside, because it looked down on the mansions of Andrew Carnegie, Henry Clay Frick and others by whom he felt slighted because of his West Virginia roots. He named the estate Greystone for the color of the stones from which it was built. Greystone survives while the mansions of Andrew Carnegie and many others of Pittsburgh’s Gilded Age do not.  

Join the Pittsburgh Symphony Association for one night to see how an important Industrialist lived and enjoy the outstanding music from an ensemble from our wonderful Pittsburgh Symphony.
