The Portland Symphony Orchestra has been inspiring audiences since it made its debut almost a century ago. And while there’s little chance that today’s patrons will find a concert canceled because the hall’s custodian went fishing (as was the case in 1924) the PSO still resonates with a refrain that echoes far beyond the borders of our city and stage. That sound is grounded in our commitment to the world-class performance of exceptional musical experiences we invite you to share. (This excerpt taken from the Portland Symphony Orchestra website)
