    Embark on an emotional odyssey with the Oregon Symphony, exploring the cultural heritage, personal identities, and family histories of three groundbreaking living American composers. Singer and composer Nathalie Joachim’s “Ki Moun Ou Ye” (which means “Who Are You?” in Creole) celebrates her Haitian family with vibrant stories of community, survival, and freedom. Witness a new arrangement of Steve Reich’s iconic Minimalist masterpiece “Different Trains” – a haunting exploration of Holocaust survivors’ stories interwoven with his childhood memories. Plus, be captivated by Portland native Oswald Huynh’s poignant composition inspired by Vietnamese lullabies. Join us for an evening of breathtaking music that uniquely captures the human experience.
