I am totally excited to invite you to the Portland Youth Philharmonic New Music Festival Vol. 2: “The Orchestra Strikes Back” Saturday, April 10 at 7pm PT (10pm EDT).
The PYP strings will perform the premiere of my commissioned piece “Turning Tides.”
These young musicians deserve so much respect for preserving with their music studies through the pandemic. Plus, they have been performing brand new works by contemporary composers!
Please show your support with an e-ticket purchase for the PYP New Music Festival Vol. 2 Saturday, April 10 at 7pm PT (10pm EDT). E-tickets are on a “pay-what-you-can” scale. A free e-ticket is also an option. All payments made towards our virtual concerts are considered tax-deductible donations.
