Hear the 'Roaring Twenties' with Hillsboro Symphony Orchestra
The Hillsboro Symphony Orchestra is providing audiences with a chance to experience "The Roaring Twenties" — not just the decade of the 1920s, from which the name originates, but music from that decade of the past four centuries.
The concert will take place at 7:30 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 19, at the Hidden Creek Community Center, located at 5100 N.E. Hidden Creek Drive in Hillsboro. The program will showcase compositions from the 1720s, 1820s, 1920s and from the 2020s.
The concert will be under the direction of associate conductor Jeff Hornick.
The program includes "An American in Paris" by George Gershwin, "Tahiti Trot" by Vincent Youmans, "Scherzo" by Felix Mendelssohn, the "Summer" movement from "The Four Seasons" by Antonio Vivaldi, a new composition called "Symphony No. 1 in D Minor — 'Pandemic'" by 17-year-old Camilo Aybar, and "Fanfares et Simphonies" by Jean-Joseph Mouret.
Tickets are available at the door and in advance through the HSO website. Adult tickets are $12, $10 for students and seniors, and children 12 and under get in free.
