The American Scene

Portland’s locally-grown orchestra since 1924 opens its landmark 95th season with distinguished composer William Grant Still’s The American SceneThe Far West, a three-movement suite from his much larger work The American Scene, which explores American identity in different geographical regions of the country. Known as “the Dean” of African-American composers, Still captures in this suite themes depicting America’s unique western soul. Also on the program, PYP will reveal the heart of Czech composer Antonín Dvořák, whose expansive Symphony No. 6 is radiant and robust with pastoral elements expressing the sheer joy of being alive.

Hearing is believing. Discover for yourself why The Chicago Tribune called the orchestra “brilliant in all departments!”
