Dreamlike, melancholy, and hopeful for redemption, Antony and the Johnsons—winners of Great Britain’s 2005 Mercury Prize—join the Oregon Symphony for a one-of-a-kind concert. For this special evening, Antony and the Johnsons will unite with a full orchestra to produce a wall of exotic and extraordinary sound. Antony’s voice—a fusion of Nina Simone and Elvis—will journey through landscapes both natural and psychological via the band’s favorites and perhaps a few soulful surprises.
Since its founding more than a century ago, the Oregon Symphony has been recognized for its internationally acclaimed music directors, skilled performers, diverse programs and outstanding community services in education and regional touring. The Oregon Symphony now ranks among the largest orchestras in the nation.
