Oregon Symphony: Scheherazade

Colorful ribbons stretch into the balconies to pluck notes seemingly out of thin air in this delicate percussion concerto. And then the telling tale of the Arabian Nights!

What a way to begin the classical subscription season!

Rimsky-Korsakov: Scheherazade

PROGRAM presents two different perspectives on the East, one first-hand and one as seen through a 19th-century Westerner's conception of the "exotic" Orient. Toru Takemitsu's ethereal percussion concerto embodies the essentially Japanese concept of ma, the energy perceived in the silences and spaces between notes. In contrast, Nikolai Rimsky-Korsakov's Scheher-azade is, as the composer acknowledges, a European's imagination of a semi-enchanted realm inspired by the Tales from the Arabian Nights, rather than a literal representation.

Tickets from $22: http://www.orsymphony.org or call[masked]-1353.

Students may purchase tickets for $10 the week of the concert starting on Monday at 10am at the Oregon Symphony Ticket Office (923 SW Washington, Mon-Fri 10a-6p) or two hours before the concert at the Arlene Schnitzer Concert Hall Hall. Valid student ID required. One ticket per student ID. Some seating restrictions apply.

For all classical and pops series concerts, Seniors (age 62 and over) may purchase tickets at half price starting two hours before the concert at the Concert Hall Box Office in the Broadway lobby of Arlene Schnitzer Concert Hall. All seating sections are eligible for this discount except Dress Circle.

Let's get there at 7:00 (curtain is at 7:30) and meet in the lobby just inside the BROADWAY entrance. PLEASE note the suggested time to meet -- 7:00. I will wait there until 7:05. Again, we meet INSIDE the lobby -- all the way inside, after you show your ticket. Inside. Not outside, not in the foyer. Thanks!

    The duo concert at the Old Church was splendid! Such elegant, musical sounds from these accomplished performers-(I heard it all from the next room--I was the one coughing-so, so sorry). I tried to find you - and the Symphony Orchestra concert co-incides with absence out of town. Well, next time, Philip---- Gwen

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
