The Oregon Symphony has unveiled a stellar lineup of concerts for the 2020-21 season, performing new works from diverse composers as well as classical favorites, and featuring world-renowned classical luminaries performing alongside the internationally acclaimed Oregon Symphony Orchestra. The season will be Maestro Carlos Kalmar’s last as music director for the Oregon Symphony, during which time he has helped establish this orchestra as one of the most artistically vibrant, relevant and daring orchestras in the nation.

“In the 20/21 Season, we tell the story of Carlos and the Oregon Symphony. Over the course of the year, Carlos will bring you music that moves him and us. Every piece of music has a story, and we’ll hear these stories all season, as Carlos and the orchestra perform beloved standards and insightful new programs,” Showalter said.

In 20/21, the Oregon Symphony Orchestra will perform 22 Oregon Symphony premieres, works from 15 living composers, five U.S. or world premieres and four commissioned works. Season tickets are on sale now!
