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
Reviews & Ratings
The music of Amanda Richards covers a wide and diverse field — from sensuous ballads to old-school rockabilly; soulful bossa-nova to laugh-out-loud country satire. In 2004, at the age of twenty-one she released Not Always Sexy as her first album followed by Live at Mississippi Studios in 2006, which was hailed as “spellbinding across the spectrum, and a standout whose star is on the rise” by the Portland Tribune.
In 2009, Amanda released Who Has Your Heart to great reviews and a growing fan base, with music from the album being picked up by radios stations of different genres. Her latest studio album, the post-apocalyptic, zombie-themed _Play Dead _(2010), was praised by the Portland Mercury as “sweet and enduring, despite Richards’s bloody lyrical content. The end of days never sounded so sweet."
