Stravinsky’s Rite of Spring

Stravinsky’s 1913 ballet score, still as fresh, wild, and primal today as it was 100 years ago when it caused a riot at its Paris premiere, is now considered one of the most influential works of the last century, performed now with a spectacular video presentation.

American Classics: Trail of Tears

The PCSO continues the presentation of the dynamic works of composer Michael Daugherty, whose Fire & Blood concerto captivated PCSO audiences. From November 1838 to March 1839, tens of thousands of native Americans, with scant clothing and many without shoes, were forced to make a 800-mile march for relocation in Oklahoma during the bitter cold of winter. Suffering from exposure, disease, and starvation, nearly thousands died during the five-month march known as the "Trail of Tears." Michael Daugherty's poignant concerto is brought to life by the extraordinary flutist Molly Barth.

Britt Orchestra at Crater Lake National Park

On July 29 and 30, 2016, Britt will celebrate the unique majesty of Crater Lake when members of the Britt Orchestra and Music Director Teddy Abrams perform at the national park. Abrams will lead approximately 40 Britt Orchestra musicians in the performances, with the dramatic panorama of the entire lake as the backdrop. The musicians will perform a world premiere composition by New York-based composer Michael Gordon, commissioned by Britt and inspired by Crater Lake. Gordon will be an artist-in-residence at Crater Lake several times throughout the next year, to draw on the park for inspiration for his composition.
