Camerata PYP welcomes special guests Hossein and Bobak Salehi, Nat Hulskamp, and Matt Hannafin of ArtMax Academy, for an intimate performance in Portland’s Pearl District. PYP Musical Director David Hattner invites audiences to experience an adventurous program of contemporary chamber music featuring Czech composers and traditional Persian instruments on Sunday, April 23, 2017, with a 2:00 PM concert at Wieden+Kennedy.
“We first worked with Hossein and Bobak Salehi five years ago,” says Hattner. “I wanted to present Henry Cowell’s Persian Set. Cowell’s music was scored for chamber orchestra with Persian instruments and I was delighted to learn at the time that there were Persian master musicians here in Portland.”
Camerata PYP will also perform Josef Suk’s Meditation on an Old Czech Chorale and Six Variations for Violin and String Orchestra by Portland’s beloved Czech-American composer Tomáš Svoboda. PYP concertmaster Fumika Mizuno will be featured in the Svoboda piece.
Camerata PYP tickets are $15 for adults, $12 for seniors, $5 for students, and can be purchased at the door, by calling the PYP office at 503.223.5939 (Monday – Friday, 9 AM – 5 PM), or by clicking here.
