On day one of their 2020 tour, the Symphony Orchestra joined forces with the Portland Youth Philharmonic for a side-by-side reading of Igor Stravinsky's Firebird Suite and Johannes Brahms' Symphony no. 4.
The orchestra also got a special behind-the-scenes chance to watch the Oregon Symphony rehearse Barber Symphony no. 1 and Tchaikovsky Capriccio Italien in the beautiful Arlene Schnitzer Concert Hall. Afterwards, they had an opportunity to meet with Maestro Huynh and ask questions about his musical experiences. View more photos
