Paul McCartney's Nova, an orchestral adaptation composed by McCartney for his late wife, Linda, will have its North American premiere this Fall.

Nova will be part of Heart Strings event and will be performed by the Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra, Friday, September 7, 2012, 8 p.m., at Heinz Hall, 600 Penn Ave., Pittsburgh, to benefit pediatric cardiac research.

"We are equally excited about the importance of generating awareness about sudden cardiac arrest among children and teenagers."
