Portland Columbia Symphony: BON BONS and BRATWURST

The “Bon bons” of the first half begin with the energetic Hungarian March by Berlioz. Amitie (Friendship) by French composer Eugene Ysaye is a lesser known piece, though through no fault of its own. It’s a forgotten gem. Concertmaster Sarah Kwak and her husband Vali Phillips from the Oregon Symphony perform two works for two solo violins and orchestra. The “meat” of the evening is undoubtedly Beethoven’s heroic Fifth symphony, arguably the best known of all classical music. Join us for an exciting evening of contrasts: forgotten elegance and an iconic pillar of the symphonic repertoire. Program includes Marche Hongroise from The Damnation of Faust of Berlioz; Ysaye’s Amitie for Two Violins and orchestra, Op. 26, Sarah Kwak and Vali Phillips, violins; Navarra for Two Violins and Orchestra, Op. 33 of Sarasate, Sarah Kwak and Vali Phillips, violins and Beethoven’s Symphony No. 5 in C minor, Op. 57. Peter Shannon, Conductor and Finalist Candidate. Visit Organizer Website for ticket purchase. Performance repeats May 4, 3:00 pm at Mt Hood Community College, 26000 SE Stark St. (29th St & Kane Dr Entrance), Gresham, 97030.
