The Intimate Symphony with Infinite Imagination

Welcome to the 2013-14 Season

Jan 04 PCO concert - about to begin.jpg

PCO is thrilled to unveil a new program for Season 2013/2014. In December, we will bring Messiah to venues outside downtown Portland and carry on this beautiful tradition for the fourth year. The orchestra will top off the season with Pictures at an Exhibition, wherein Maestro Yaacov Bergman will present two different versions of the Mussorgsky piano suite. The second version brings a contemporary interpretation to Mussorgsky's most famous piano composition. Join us for this exciting season as we look forward to sharing this wonderful musical experience with you!
