Join thousands of students from Portland and beyond at the Arlene Schnitzer Concert Hall to experience an educational concert – just for youth! The Oregon Symphony orchestra gives students a memorable musical experience by combining the expansive emotional impact of classical music with historical and social concepts that relate to their lives and learning today.

Throughout history, music has been a reflection of each composer’s cultural background and influences of their homeland. Join the orchestra as we discover the diversity of cultures shaping the great pieces of music, with a spotlight on music from The Americas.
The program will include:
Gould: American Salute
Márquez: Danzón No. 2
Bernstein: West Side Story Overture
Copland: Variations on a Shaker Melody
Dvořák: Largo from Symphony No. 9 in E Minor
Sam Hyken: Tocatta y Fuga in D Minor
John Williams: Hedwig’s Theme
You can also request a trained volunteer to visit your class and preview the concert – see the order form for details.
