What’s On Tap?

beer tapsThis Saturday, Sunday, and Monday, the Oregon Symphony allows guest conductor Christoph König to steer the ship for Hindemith’s insane Concerto for Orchestra, Schumann’s very first symphony, and Ludwig van Beethoven’s monumental Piano Concerto #5 featuring André Watts behind the Steinway.

Why go?  Listen up: Almost every classical show features an international virtuoso that teams up with Portland’s big band, but Mr. Watts is this season’s only soloist to carry legendary status with him onto the Schnitzer stage.  Introduced by Leonard Bernstein on national TV in the early 60’s when he was a 16-year-old black kid, the wunderkind instantly rocketed to stardom and has been playing to packed houses ever since.  The sweet, sweet fact that Watts is in PDX to knock out LvB’s fifth (and final) piano concerto makes this program the very first do-not-miss performance of 2013.  Just go.

For more deets, click on *the band’s website, call one of their lovely phone reps at (503) 228-1353, or slip into their downtown box office at 923 SW Washington today or Monday.
