Celebrate the heroism of motherhood with this special Mother's Day concert from the Portland Youth Philharmonic. Often cited as the beginning of the romantic period in music, Beethoven's third symphony, also known as Eroica, is one of the milestone works in classical music. Inspired by the ideals of the French Revolution, Beethoven set out to musically explore -- on the grandest of scales -- what makes a hero. PYP is the oldest youth orchestra in the country and is comprised of talented local musicians age 7-22. The ensemble performs around the globe and is renowned for its programs fostering music education in Portland-area schools. Learn More

The band was improvisational, but tight; keeping with the Keystone tradition. Tony Saunders (bassist and Merl's son) is a monster bass player and a hell of a nice guy. He told stories about hanging out with and playing with Merl and Jerry. Got to talk with him and guitarist Michael Hinton after the show. Drummer Bill Vitt was amazing, but made it look so easy. Michael Hinton is a very melodic player. The combined band energy really fired up the audience. Merl and Jerry would be proud.
Keystone Revisited was bought together because of the huge demand from fans to hear more music from the originators of the so-called “Jam Band.” They take their name and inspiration from a 1973 album by Jerry and Merl recorded at The Keystone in Berkely, CA. When Merl Saunders and Jerry Garcia got together it was pure magic. They were in these groups; Merl Saunders and Jerry Garcia, Reconstruction and Legion Of Mary, which were at the forefront of the jam band era.
