Portland Youth Philharmonic opens its landmark 95th season with distinguished composer William Grant Still’s The Far West from his larger suite The American Scene. Written in 1957, by “the Dean of African-American composers,” The Far West evokes the age-old cultures and natural beauty of America’s West Coast. Still, who was of Spanish, Native American, Irish, Scottish, and African-American ancestry, envisioned a proudly multicultural America, as harmonious in race and ethnic relations as his music.

Soon to be the first U.S. orchestra for young musicians to reach its 100th anniversary, PYP commemorates 95 years of fearless artistry by presenting a movement from Still’s rarely-performed work The American Scene, as well as Dvořák’s expansive Symphony No. 6. The concert will also include a performance of the first movement of Tchaikovsky’s Violin Concerto by 17-year-old violinist Aaron Greene, winner of PYP’s 2018-19 Soloist Competition.

Tickets start at just $5 at www.portlandyouthphil.org/concerts.

Meetings: Monthly on the 4th Saturday of the month at 12:30 p.m.

If you're stuck in your research, want some advice, or just want to brainstorm, come on by. SIG coordinator Janice Sellers will be there for the entire time and will be happy to talk with you.

If you know of any other people interested in African American genealogy, tell them about the group. You do not have to be a GFO member to participate! For more information, contact us at african_american@gfo.org.
