InSymphony: The Magazine of the Oregon Symphony for iPad!
May 1–20, 2015

Playbill includes information on upcoming Oregon Symphony performances:

Storm Large
Friday, May 1, 2015, 7:30 p.m.
Portland’s unforgettable songstress returns to her favorite orchestra. But this time she wraps herself around the American Songbook standards. Where tradition ends and Storm takes off will be anyone’s guess!

It’s sure to be a sold-out concert that we’re sure will be anything but “standard.”

Sax and the Symphony
Saturday, May 9, 2015, 7:30 p.m.
Sunday, May 10, 2015, 7:30 p.m.
Monday, May 11, 2015, 8:00 p.m.
From the score of West Side Story, Bernstein’s sizzling Symphonic Dances are the perfect complement to the Latin sounds of Roberto Sierra’s Concerto for Saxophones, performed by living legend of jazz, James Carter. And audiences can be sure that Barber’s memorable Adagio for Strings will add the perfect touch!

Cherry Poppin’ Daddies
Saturday, May 16, 2015, 7:30 p.m.
With their smash 1997 hit “Zoot Suit Riot,” Oregon’s own Cherry Poppin’ Daddies single-handedly put swing back on the map. Now their high-energy twist on rock n’ roll is back, this time with a Speakeasy Party—music from Louis Armstrong, Duke Ellington, Bing Crosby and more from the Roaring 20s!*

Beethoven’s Piano Concerto No. 1
Sunday, May 17, 2015, 2:00 p.m.
Monday, May 18, 2015, 8:00 p.m.
One of Portland’s favorite pianists returns, and with him, the always-exciting, immortal Mr. B.

A Classical Menagerie with Pink Martini
Tuesday, May 19, 2015, 7:30 p.m.
Wednesday, May 20, 2015, 7:30 p.m.
Portland’s favorite bands—Pink Martini and the Oregon Symphony—put a salsa spin on Prokofiev’s Peter and the Wolf and romp through a kaleidoscope of classical favorites. When Thomas Lauderdale and his pal Carlos Kalmar get together, one thing’s for sure— it’ll be a party you won’t want to miss!
