Opening Night: Portland Youth Philharmonic

BRETT CAMPBELL
7:30 pm., Saturday November 09 | $17-$50.
 
[YOUNG CLASSICAL] One of the Portland Youth Philharmonic’s most famous alums, violist and composer Kenji Bunch, recently moved back to Portland. He spent the last two decades in New York, winning renown for his refreshingly accessible, thoroughly contemporary compositions. He’s working with the orchestra that gave him his start as both a teacher and composer, including this concert’s world premiere of the orchestral version of his Supermaximum. Inspired by the way unjustly incarcerated black prisoners in the pre-Civil Rights South drew strength from music, the program also features Hannah Moon, who won the orchestra’s annual piano concerto composition, in Grieg’s famous piano concerto. The performance also includes music by Dvorak and 20th-century neo-Romantic American composer Howard Hanson.
