Arlene Schnitzer Concert Hall


Ruth Gipps is now considered one of England’s greatest symphonic composers. Neglected during her lifetime, her tonal, colorful orchestral writing is at its most ambitious in the third of her five symphonies. Join us and let the Philharmonic Orchestra whisk you away for this fun and inspiring musical experience.

Program highlights:

The PYP Orchestra
Conducted by David Hattner

Jeff Scott: (World Premiere)

Ruth Gipps: Symphony No. 3 (USA Premiere)

Featured performance by the 2022 Concerto Competition Winner
