Oregon Symphony Performs Classical Concert at Willamette

The Oregon Symphony and Canadian pianist Angela Hewitt will perform a classical concert Monday, Feb. 22, at 8 p.m. in Smith Auditorium at Willamette University.

Conducted by Gregory Vajda, the symphony and Hewitt will play Mozart's "Piano Concerto No. 23," Webern's "Passacaglia" and Berlioz's "Symphonie fantastique." Hewitt's performances have been called "unforgettable" by The Oregonian.

Since 1955 the Oregon Symphony, based in Portland, has partnered with Willamette to bring the symphony's classical concerts to the Salem community. Pops concerts were added to the series in 1975.

Today the Oregon Symphony in Salem presents a season of nine to ten concerts annually on the Willamette campus.
