PCC Rock Creek Presents Free Fall Concert


17705 NW Springville Road



The Portland Community College Rock Creek music program will present the Chamber Ensemble, Jazz Ensemble and Symphonic Band in a free concert.

The Chamber Ensemble, directed by Jason Palmer, will perform classical repertoire from Bach to Piazzolla in a small chamber music format. The Jazz Ensemble will perform a wide variety of jazz, Brazilian and popular music including works by Joe Zawinul, Josh Deutsch, Horace Silver, Antonio Carlos Jobim, and student composers.

The Symphonic Band, directed by Noelle Freshner, will perform Amparito Roca by Spanish composer Jaime Texidor, Cajun Folk Songs by Frank Tichelli (a tribute to the people of Cajun folksong culture) and Symphony No. 4 by Andrew Boysen Jr. The concert will also feature the animated piece Autobahn by Ryan George. The composer wrote of this work, “In writing this piece I wanted to focus less on the idea of speed and more on the freedom and exhilaration that one feels while driving on a road with no limitations.”
