The Central Oregon Symphony, directed by Michael Gesme, continues its 2015-16 season with concerts at 7:30pm on Saturday, February 13 and Monday, February 15 and at 2pm on Sunday, February 14 in the Bend High School Auditorium. Doors will open 45 minutes before the performances. Tickets are required for these free concerts.
This concert is presented in conjunction with the High Desert Museum’s spring 2016 exhibit highlighting the Works Progress Administration. At its zenith, the WPA, though the Federal Music Project, supported more than 16,000 musicians, 300 ensembles and fostered the creation of hundreds of new works.
Quiet City by Copland and The Plow That Broke the Plains and The River by Thompson were directly commissioned by the WPA. The concert will feature performances by the winners of the Young Artist Competition.
