Resonance Ensemble - Back in the U.S.S.R. (Portland Shostakovich Festival)

Under the oppressive Soviet regime’s strict musical censorship, composers found different ways to cope: by writing rousing nationalist propaganda, subtly subversive works in “musical code” to sneak past the censors, or oppositional music that endangered their lives or forced them into exile. This concert, presented in conjunction with Yale Union (YU) as part of the Portland Shostakovich Festival, will include thrilling music by Shostakovich, Pärt, Ligeti, Prokofiev, and many other composers affected by the U.S.S.R.

Tickets: $22/Adult, $15/Senior, $11/Student. Available online at

Saturday's concert is at the Lewis & Clark Chapel. The program repeats Sunday at 2 pm at Yale Union (YU)

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
