PSU Orchestra with conductor Ken Selden

PSU Orchestra with conductor Ken Selden

Each year, the PSU Orchestra presents a series of concerts throughout the Portland area. Recent highlights include music of Mahler and Frank Zappa at the Crystal Ballroom, a centennial performance of Stravinsky's Rite of Spring featuring the Agnieszka Laska Dancers, an evening of opera arias with Pink Martini singer China Forbes, Beethoven's Ninth Symphony with the PSU Choirs, and Messiaen's Oiseaux exotiques with Orli Shaham.

Following the appointment of music director Ken Selden in 2006, the PSU Orchestra has received three awards in Adventurous Programming from ASCAP and the League of American Orchestras.

Since arriving to Portland in 2006, Ken Selden has appeared as guest conductor of the Oregon Symphony, Third Angle New Music Ensemble, Salem Chamber Orchestra, Eugene Symphony, Portland Youth Philharmonic and the Newport Symphony. Most recently, his two CD recordings of Mahler and Debussy arrangements with the newly established Martingale Ensemble were released on MSR Classics.

The location that serves as one of McMenamins favorite neighborhood theater pubs was the locus of great spiritual zeal beginning in the 1890s. That's when the Swedish Evangelical Mission established its church here....
