We are proud to announce our eleventh season, “Programming with Purpose.” Our concerts this year highlight underrepresented perspectives through powerful new music. Mental health awareness, immigration, and race take a front seat as we ride with intention into each performance.
Join us for world premieres on every show:
Brandon Stewart’s touching composition, Alone will be featured in Beautiful Minds.
Our first commissioned piece this season is from none other than Joe Kye, the brilliant composer/singer/violinist/looper who will premiere his work for us on our Safe Harbor concert. (Watch Joe Kye demonstrate what it means to be a looper in the video below)
We're thrilled to partner with the Oregon Symphony to present the world premiere of our second commission of the season: An African American Requiem by composer Damien Geter. Damien’s work offers a bold, thought-provoking musical response to violence against African Americans in the United States. Combining traditional Latin Requiem texts with civil rights declarations, poetry, and the famous last words of Eric Garner, “I can’t breathe,” this performance will honor past and present victims of racial violence and spur reflection on how to build a more hopeful future.
