Portland Jazz Composers Ensemble does not perform at this partner event presented by Metropolitan Youth Symphony.
This very special concert brings renowned guest artist Regina Carter to Portland audiences, as she solos with the advanced MYS Symphony Orchestra in the West Coast Premiere of David Schiff’s 4 Sisters jazz violin concerto. Carter joins MYS’s advanced Jazz students for some classics and a brand new piece from the Portland Jazz Composers Ensemble young composers program alum John Blewster.
The symphony also premieres a new work by 17-year-old composer Grace Miedziak (part of The Authentic Voice series). Hillsboro string ensembles open the concert.
