The Oregon Symphony performs the world premiere of a piece called "Drum Circles" by Christopher Theofanidis. This dynamic 25-minute composition is created for a full orchestra accompanied by four guest percussion soloists, each tasked with playing an expansive instrumental panoply that includes maracas, congas, glockenspiels, cowbells, and a typewriter. Ralph Vaughan Williams’ "The Lark Ascending", one of the most beloved musical gems to ever take flight, is also on the program, showcasing our magical concertmaster Sarah Kwak with her brilliant violin work. An overture by Wagner and Mendelssohn’s “Italian” Symphony No. 4 round out the setlist. The Oregon Symphony, The Percussion Collective Robert van Sice
