Jon Kimura Parker to play Brahms with the Oregon Symphony this weekend
The Oregon Symphony welcomes back Jon Kimura ("Jackie") Parker to the stage this weekned for a concerts series that features Brahms Piano Concerto No. 1. This is a terrific piece that is counted among the best in the concerto literature. Also on this program are Bela Bartok's Divertimento for String Orchestra and Liszt's Hungarian Rhapsody No. 1. Since the concert will kick off the season, you'll get to open your lungs and sing the Star Spangeled Banner with the orchestra in an arrangement by Norman Leyden.
