What’s On Tap?

beer tapsThis Saturday, Sunday, and Monday, the Oregon Symphony and the Portland Symphonic Choir perform an overture by Paul Hindemith, Ballad of Heroes by Benjamin Britten (yay!), and a little sumpin’ sumpin’ colloquially referred to around the home office as Ludwig van Beethoven’s Frickin’ Ninth Symphony!!!

Why Go? Um, because you have tickets. As previously reported, all 3 of these upcoming shows are completely sold out! If you’re interested in attending tomorrow morning’s dress rehearsal, *click here for more details about that very rad and very rare opportunity.

And remember, there’s something else on tap for the band this weekend… a potential Grammy award! Look: All the nominees in this category are undoubtedly world-class, but because the Oregon Symphony’s recording captures such a brilliant and unusual program designed by Coach K., this rodent thinks we have a decided edge in the race. It seems like ages ago when Elaine Calder (my favorite ex-president right after Jimmy Carter) boldly predicted that not only would Music for a Time of War be nominated for Best Orchestral Album of the year, it would win the whole enchilada. We’ll find out Sunday if she was right. Claws crossed!
