CORVALLIS, Ore. – The Corvallis-OSU Symphony Society will host the Portland Youth Philharmonic for a performance at 3 p.m. Sunday, Oct. 28 in the Austin Auditorium at The LaSells Stewart Center, 875 SW 26th Street.

The concert will features three masterworks conducted by Portland Youth Philharmonic music director David Hattner. “The Far West” from William Grant Still’s “The American Scene” opens the program. The 1957 work evokes impressions of the age-old culture and natural beauty of the American west coast.

The first movement of Pyotr Tchaikovsky’s Violin Concerto in D Major, Op. 35, featuring Portland Youth Philharmonic concerto competition winner Aaron Greene completes the first half of the performance.

Antonín Dvořák’s Sixth Symphony in D Major, Op. 112 completes the program. The 40-minute, four-movement work was composed in 1880 for the Vienna Philharmonic Orchestra and marks the end of an experimental compositional period for Dvořák.

Tickets are $5 and all seating is general admission. Advance tickets available at or at the box office beginning one hour prior to the performance. Accommodations relating to a disability may be made by calling 541-286-5580, preferably at least one week in advance.
