Feb. 10-12/ Just in time for Valentine’s Day, the Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra will present Tchaikovsky’s “Suite from The Sleeping Beauty,” the lively score to the classic fairy tale about destiny and true love. (Heinz Hall, 600 Penn Ave., Cultural District; 412/392.4900, pittsburghsymphony.org)

Feb. 11/ The Warhol Sound Series prides itself on its eclectic offerings, and Valerie June is no exception. June describes her style as “organic moonshine roots music,” a blend of country, blues, gospel and folk-pop, infused with her Tennessee roots and studded with surprising sonic delights, such as a dash of ukulele or an unexpected funk riff. These elements, along with her unique voice, elevate June beyond genre to a sound completely her own. (Carnegie Lecture Hall, 4400 Forbes Ave., Oakland; 412/237.8300, warhol.org)

Feb. 25/ Consider emerging from your winter hibernation this month and letting Khruangbin steward you towards sunnier emotional climes. The trio from Texas specializes in a warming mix of surf rock and Thai funk, guaranteed to give a slight reprieve from your seasonal sadness.
