The Program

  • Walczyk—Celebration Fanfare: Walczyk, a Portland native and Portland Youth Philharmonic alumnus, awakens the senses with a growing shimmer of bells and flutes that begin a call-and-response trade-off with brass and percussion.
  • Bartok—Concerto for Viola: Samuel Zacharia, the 15-year-old PYP Concerto Competition Winner and co-principal viola player, gives a virtuosic performance of one of Bartok's last pieces. Left unfinished in a pile on his bedside table when he died, the Hungarian composer's concerto was finished by his friend Tibor Serly and features bassoons, flutes, trumpets, and timpani.
  • Shostakovich—Symphony No. 4: Afraid of political persecution, Dmitri Shostakovich silenced the 1936 premiere of his fourth symphony. Twenty-five years later, he was no longer fearful, and audiences were finally treated to the first performance; Shostakovich was so proud of his work he did not change a single note.

Portland Youth Philharmonic

As America's first youth orchestra, the Portland Youth Philharmonic could just skate by on this distinction alone. But it doesn't. Throughout its 90-year history, the three-time ASCAP winner for Adventurous Music Programming has continued to prepare young people to pursue a wide variety of professional careers, some of whom have go on to perform with institutions such as the New York Philharmonic, the Boston Symphony, and the Oregon Symphony.
