(CANCELED) Open Music with Conrad Tao

We regretfully announce that the Oregon Symphony must cancel Open Music with Conrad Tao scheduled for Tuesday, January 16 at the Alberta Rose Theatre due to inclement weather. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause. Ticket holders should check their email for further instructions from our Ticket Office.

Conrad Tao has emerged at twenty-eight as one of the most thoughtful and broad-minded artists of our time. A brilliant pianist, violinist, and composer, Tao is an effortlessly engaging raconteur—as comfortable talking about video games, queer theory, and dark corners of the internet—as he is about music. For this program, Conrad has curated a set of music about focus, mindfulness and time-dilation.
