PSO Symphony 101

Get an in-depth look at how the musicians prepare for a concert.

We took our Symphony 101 program online!

Watch our first Virtual Symphony 101 from Thursday, May 28th. The PSO’s Executive Director Carolyn Nishon and Music Director, Eckart Preu were joined via zoom by members of our community for an in-depth discussion and an inside look about how the Symphony operates.

Be on the lookout for more virtual events such as this one! If you have any questions or would like to RSVP to any of our future virtual events, please email Hillary Winslow at hwinslow@portlandsymphony.org.
