A Summer Day in Pittsburgh: Gardens, Patios and More!

 “From Shadyside to Squirrel Hill, a range of homes with an array of design ideas for backyards + exterior entertaining spaces…Ten different locales were open on Sunday + attendees enjoyed learning about secret gardens, exotic flora + local references from docents. Also featured on Woodland Road were patios and pools which resembled a very LA pool life…The best part? Meeting a 90+ female owner who shared stories about creating her green oasis. #lovepgh #pittsburghsymphony

Pittsburgh Local Colors — Another look at “Symphony Spendor” + the gardens of select homes in Shadyside…This benefit for the Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra allowed guests to explore green paradises on a Sunday afternoon…The Mansions on Fifth luxe hotel  was headquarters + filled with music from the wold famous Pittsburgh Symphony musicians….The highlight? The Tudor house on Amberson Avenue with an English garden that included a 20-ft. totem pole from Norman Tate (middle)…A home on Westminster was inspired by Phipps with the fountain…A total of ten homes were part of the tour…#lovepgh

The above pictures and descriptions were posted on  Facebook by Tom Julian after the Symphony Splendor Garden Tour on Sunday, June 26. Our tour included  9 beautiful, diverse gardens and the Symphony Splendor Boutique. A little over 400 patrons toured the gardens in Shadyside and Squirrel Hill. Thanks to our garden owners for sharing their lovely outdoor creations, to our docents who volunteered their time to showcase the gardens, and to the Symphony Splendor Garden Committee who put all the pieces together to make this special day happen.

To Everyone Who Attended: Thank You! We cannot thank you enough for supporting Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra
