Grieg + Lauderdale
Oregon Symphony’s lineup for the weekend features an iconic pianist and a classic piece.

If you answered either “Grieg’s Piano Concerto” or “Pink Martini’s Frontman Thomas Lauderdale,” you’re correct. In case you’re not familiar with either or both, Culturephile has pulled together some video for reference.
Here’s venerated pianist Arthur Rubenstein performing the Concerto:
… and here’s Portland’s own Lauderdale, taking time between gigs to show off his favorite spots around town. If he brings his signature charm and verve to the Symphony stage, ticketholders should be in for a treat.
