The Oregon Symphony’s groundbreaking 2017/18 Sounds of Home season culminated in May with the world premiere of Gabriel Kahane’s emergency shelter intake form, an oratorio that examines the scourge of deep poverty in America through the lens of homelessness and housing insecurity. As the lead commissioner, the Oregon Symphony will record emergency shelter intake form in a reprise performance at the Arlene Schnitzer Concert Hall on August 31.
This one-hour concert is presented free-of-charge, with a pay-what-you-will suggested contribution. All proceeds will be donated to a consortium of social service agencies who partnered with the Oregon Symphony during the Sounds of Home initiative.
This concert is being recorded for a future CD release. We ask our audience to be as quiet as possible during the performance.
Please note that there is no late seating. Not recommended for children younger than 10 years of age.
