The stirring works of Brahms, Barber and more are spotlighted in the latest concert from the acclaimed Portland Youth Philharmonic, now celebrating its 90th season. A pair of solo competition winners are also featured, with double bassist Nicholas Arredondo taking the lead on Bottesini's Concerto No. 2 and violinist Byron Fulop Laing showing his talents on Lalo's Symphonie Espagnole. This awesome afternoon of music gets off to a rousing start with Brahms' Academic Festival Overture and closes with Samuel Barber's Symphony No. 1. 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.
