Symphony Orchestra’s January concert welcomes guest artist Jimmie Herrod. This concert will premiere orchestral arrangements of original songs by Mr. Herrod, including Are You Lonely, Beautiful, I Love You, I Want To Run, Mouche, and Willow Bed. While these pieces were originally written for piano and voice, student composers from The Authentic Voice student commissioning series will work with Jimmie Herrod to create orchestral arrangements. MYS Symphony Orchestra and Music Director Raúl Gómez-Rojas will accompany Jimmie as he sings his songs, now expanded to a full orchestral palette.
Rounding out the repertoire, Symphony Orchestra will perform En la Alhambra by Spanish composer Tomás Bretón, Alentejana: Suite no.2 by Portuguese composer Luís de Freitas Branco, and she flies with her own wings by acclaimed Oregon composer and MYS artistic team member Kenji Bunch.
Tickets are available on the Portland’5 website or in person at the Newmark Theatre Box Office 2 hrs before the show.
