As part of its 31st annual Performing Arts Series, the Clatskanie Arts Commission presents the Oregon Symphonic Band in concert at 3 p.m. Sunday, Nov. 17, at the Donavon Wooley Performing Arts Center at Clatskanie Middle/High School, 471 Bel Air Drive, Clatskanie.
According to a press release submitted to The Daily News, the OSB is Oregon's premier symphonic band based in Portland. The award-winning band was originally formed in 1986 to allow professional and expert amateur musicians to play challenging and ensemble music, notes the release. Many of the participants were music teachers and band directors.
The band is made up of 65 brass, woodwind and percussion musicians who all volunteer to play together "for their love of music," notes the release.
The band's 2019-2020 season "Opposites" starts with the Clatskanie Arts Commission's fall concert "North and South of the Border" featuring music from Canada and Latin America.
Tickets are $10 per person for adults, $8 per person for students and senior citizens 60 years old and older and $6 per person for children 12 years old and younger. Music students of all ages will be admitted free.
