Portland State University Orchestra concert this Sunday

The PSU Symphony Orchestra, conducted by Ken Selden, will present one of the last concerts in Lincoln Hall on the PSU campus this Sunday afternoon before the building undergoes renovation (I think for seismic upgrades). One of the highlights of the concert should be Susan Chan (PSU professor) teaming up with Momoko Muramatsu (pianist based in New York City) to play Poulenc's "Concerto for Two Pianos." Also of note are two world premieres: "Caprice" by Sarah Jarvinen and "Far and Away" by Gavi de Tarr. Jarvinen and de Tarr are the winners of the inaugural PSU Symphony Composition Competition. To round off the concert, the orchestra will play Dvork's 8th Symphony.

Where: Lincoln Performance Hall, Rm. 175
When: Sunday, June 8 at 3 pm
Cost: $10 for general/ $8 for non-PSU students / $6 for seniors
