Steve Bass, Oregon Public Broadcasting's President and CEO, will emcee the performance which includes works by two prominent African American composers – William Grant Still and Pulitzer Prize winner George Walker – as well as audience favorite Elgar’s Serenade, Vivaldi’s Concerto Alla Rustica and Vaughan Williams’ Five Variants of “Dives and Lazarus”. The concert will culminate with the performance of Shostakovich’s monumental Chamber Symphony, Op. 110a (arr. Barshai) composed “in memory of victims of fascism and war.”
