Oregon Symphony: Opening Night with George Takei
Best known for his portrayal of Mr. Sulu in Star Trek and now renowned as a social justice/media mega-star, Takei makes his Oregon Symphony debut as emcee of our opening night and joins a legendary list of narrators of Copland’s emotional work.
A concert certain to get the 2017/18 Season off to a grand, classically American start.
