Music of the Night
As mentioned in yesterday's post, Portland has a professional symphony called the Oregon Symphony. They have a couple of different regular venues, but this is the one they use a vast majority of the time. It's located just a few blocks from Pioneer Square, as seen in yesterday's post. Husband and I have enjoyed three concerts here thus far; two as date night activities and another as a family event for their annual Sunday afternoon Christmas concert (which we will likely do again). We already have plans to attend their September performance of Rimsky-Korsakov's "Scheherazade," a concert which also features a modern percussion concerto. As a percussionist and classical music enthusiast, I am extremely excited for this concert and have been waiting on pins and needles for the tickets to go on sale (and for my bank account to have enough money to purchase them). Tomorrow I will show you what this concert hall looks like on the inside!
