Nielsen's Sinfonia Espansiva - Cancelled
With Governor Brown’s executive order to cancel all public gatherings to help slow the spread of COVID19, Portland Youth Philharmonic is taking steps to ensure the health and safety of its musicians, audiences, staff, and volunteers. In an unprecedented move, the orchestra has cancelled its Nielsen Sinfonia Espansiva concert originally scheduled for Sunday, May 3, 2020, at the Arlene Schnitzer Concert Hall.
All ticket holders will receive a personal message from PYP sent to the email address used to purchase tickets, outlining options for next steps. As a nonprofit arts organization, PYP sincerely hopes audience members will consider donating the cost of their tickets back to Portland Youth Philharmonic. Converting tickets to donations will help our nation’s oldest running youth orchestra to navigate this unparalleled global pandemic.
The orchestra shares the community’s disappointment that their final concert of the 96th Season will not be possible. Though the Schnitzer Hall is silent for now, PYP looks forward to returning to play for the community.

PYP’s staff is available to help you. Please contact Portland Youth Philharmonic directly at 503.223.5939 or firstname.lastname@example.org for assistance.
Until further notice, PYP’s office is temporarily closed to the public, for in-person transactions.
We apologize for any inconvenience. Stay home, be safe, and we will see you again soon.
