Portland Columbia Symphony is celebrating its 40th Anniversary with a knockout concert event on January 28th, 2023. The PCSO Spectacular at The Reser shows why this dynamic orchestra is so unique, with musical selections ranging from Vivaldi to Massenet, and pure classical to rock-symphonic fusion. This event will feature acclaimed violin virtuoso Alexander Markov, who also provides two original works to the concert – both scored for full orchestra and his custom-made six-string gold-plated electric violin – as well as special guest, Jimmie Herrod. The PCSO Spectacular is no ordinary concert – it is an experience!
We can’t give away all the details just yet, but here are a few ‘breadcrumbs’ about the fabulous celebration we are planning:
— Adventures on Earth from E.T. the Extraterrestrial: a real orchestral showpiece by John Williams.
— Meditation from Thaïs: one of the most famous and moving pieces for violin and orchestra by Jules Massenet.
— Caesar: Rock and Roll, Baby! An original work by Alexander Markov scored for his custom-made, six-string, gold-plated electric violin and full orchestra.
— Capriccio Espagnol: a dynamic and exotic musical depiction of Spain by Russian composer Nicolai Rimsky-Korsakov that highlights the virtuosic principal players of our orchestra and features the entire PCSO!
With special guests from the community adding even more excitement, this concert is a celebration not only of PCSO’s 40th Anniversary, but the start of an exciting new chapter for one of the best kept secrets in the Northwest music scene.
