Oregon Symphony Honors Portland Japanese Garden's 50th


Arlene Schnitzer Concert Hall
1037 SW Broadway

Sept. 21, 2013 at 7:30 pm and Sept. 23, 2013 at 8:00 pm


The Oregon Symphony honors the Portland Japanese Garden’s 50th Anniversary with a special concert that features a percussion concerto, "From me flows what you call Time," by Japanese composer Toru Takemitsu, as well as Rimsky-Korsakov’s Scheherazade based on Eastern-inspired tales from "One Thousand and One Nights." Unlike the explosive sound often associated with a percussion concerto, Takemitsu’s piece is delicate and quiet, much like a walk in the Garden itself. The Arlene Schnitzer Concert Hall will also look a little different with colorful ribbons extended from the stage into the upper seating areas where they are connected to chimes activated by one of the five percussion artists on stage.
