DeShong joins the Oregon Symphony for Mahler's Symphony No. 2

May 20 - 22, 2017

Like Beethoven’s Ninth which inspired it, Mahler’s massive Second Symphony explodes the symphonic genre. The monumental sweep of this groundbreaking soundscape miraculously encompasses life, death, and resurrection. What an epic way to end the 120th Anniversary Season!

A Singer's Suitcase 

"As a professional opera singer, I spend the majority of each year away from home. With luggage, camera, and scores in hand, I take off to different parts of the world to make music. With this blog, I hope to create a daily reminder that with travel you always take away more than you arrived with, but the most important of these things can't be put in a suitcase." -Elizabeth
