HELLO AND WELCOME TO PORTLAND FESTIVAL SYMPHONY!
Thank you to everyone who attended a free Portland Festival Symphony Concert in the Park this season! Music Directors Lajos Balogh and Gregory Vajda were in fine form and orchestra musicians played with incredible spirit and passion. It was glorious to see such large and enthusiastic crowds, particularly the children, and we’re happy to say that we exceeded recent attendance figures at some parks this year! Visit our website often to learn about upcoming events and next year’s season.
Portland Festival Symphony Founder Lajos Balogh becomes Music Director Emeritus next year as we welcome our new Music Director Gregory Vajda, former Resident Conductor of the Oregon Symphony. Maestro Balogh remains on our Board of Directors and will always be a part of the symphony and its future. We’re excited about next season and the years to come. Please visit the Conductors page to learn more about Maestro Vajda.
We feel very fortunate to have the vision of both Maestros Balogh and Vajda and to live in a city that supports classical music in the parks. We’ll see you next year!Donate
