For Release: May 31, 2011
For the second year in a row, Portland Summer Ensembles will provide young musical artists the opportunity to study chamber, orchestral and solo music with many of Portland's outstanding classical music soloists and orchestral players on the Marylhurst University campus. The public is invited to attend the professional performances of these talented young musicians and their coaches, who are principal members of the Oregon Symphony.
PSE offers summer workshops for young musicians of all ages and economic levels. Pianists and string players receive coaching on solo concertos, duos and other repertoire. Through learning the art of playing music with others, PSE hopes to open students up to the repertoire of ensemble playing and instill in them a lasting sense of music as a grounding force in their lives, whether they pursue a career in music or choose other career paths.
