Portland Symphony Orchestra Youth Concert

Our students were fortunate to attend the sold out performance on October 27th at Merrill Auditorium of Britten's Young Person’s Guide to the Orchestra (Fugue Finale)
They listened selectively under the guidance of their music teacher Joelle Morris: the brass, woodwind, string, and percussion instruments on this journey through the orchestra! 
Each section plays excerpts from Britten’s classic Young Person’s Guide to the Orchestra, plus familiar favorites from Harry Potter and Jurassic Park.
Quite a program:
BRITTEN Young Person's Guide to the Orchestra (Introduction)
GABRIELI Canzone septimi toni, No. 2
WILLIAMS Nimbus 2000 (from Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone)
BARTOK Rumanian Folk Dances
ROUSE Ogoun Badagris
TBD work by winner of Composition Competition
WILLIAMS Theme from Jurassic Park
BRITTEN Young Person's Guide to the Orchestra (Fugue Finale)
