PORTLAND, OR – Pop culture, superheroes, the magic of Motown, two colossal favorites from the orchestral repertoire, current and former Artists-in-Residence, plus a World premiere of an Oregon Symphony-commissioned percussion concerto are on tap for October.

The month begins with the next installment of the Oregon Symphony’s Popcorn Package, director Tim Burton’s Batman featuring Danny Elfman’s score performed live by orchestra and chorus October 4–6.

Old favorites and brand-new music are paired on October 12–14, when Stravinsky’s The Firebird Suite blazes forth, side by side with audience favorite Colin Currie performing the World premiere of a percussion concerto written expressly for him by composer Andy Akiho. Beethoven v. Coldplay presents and ingenious intertwining of themes from the “Eroica” Symphony with some of Coldplay’s most loved tracks, on October 17. Audiences will want to sing and dance to Motown’s amazing catalog of hits on October 19–20 with the first Pops concert of the 2019/20 Season, Dancing in the Streets. Pops conductor Jeff Tyzik and a trio of exciting young vocalists present songs of Stevie Wonder, Smokey Robinson, The Temptations, Marvin Gaye, and Diana Ross, among others.

October wraps up with Artist-in-Residence Johannes Moser performing Lutosławski’s powerful Cello Concerto on October 26–28, on a concert that also features Beethoven’s Fifth Symphony and an exciting work by rising star composer Gabriela Lena Frank.
