(PORTLAND, Ore.) – On Saturday, August 9, the Oregon Symphony figuratively swings open the doors to its entire 2014/15 season. The literal doors to the Ticket Office may not open until Monday morning, but the website ( will be activated for sales beginning at 12:01 am, Saturday.

“With our August 28 Waterfront Concert set to kick off the new season and our family of season ticket-holders now seated, it’s the perfect time to begin sales of regular tickets,” said Jim Fullan, Vice President for Communications, Marketing and Sales. “Our website will get a healthy workout, and we’ll have extra staff on hand and on the phones in the Ticket Office for the early part of the week.”

And no wonder! With 75 performances of 43 separate concert programs, the 2014/15 season brims with verve and variety. From fierce violinist Nadja Salerno-Sonnenberg to the lush tones of Itzhak Perlman, from Beethoven’s fiery Fifth to Carmina Burana, with Pops concerts spanning the spectrum from Barbra Streisand’s Songbook to Dave Bennett’s swinging clarinet, and a dazzling array of special concerts that feature Herbie Hancock, Bernadette Peters, and many others, it’s a season expected to attract over 150,000 patrons. And if those names and titles aren’t enough, there’s the home team: Music Director Carlos Kalmar and the entire Oregon Symphony Orchestra making music for delighted audiences week after week.

Prices also make the season attractive to everyone.
