About The Event

This recital program will culminate in the premiere performance of the commissioned work titled Passacaglia and Dance Variations, by Pamela Decker. This 10-minute piece develops from a haunting melodic ground bass theme (in a transformed Phrygian mode) and grows into an evolving procession of dances from many parts of the world, all with the presence of the melodic and harmonic implications of the primary theme. The premiere performance will present the organ solo work in tandem with dance interpretation by members of Oregon Ballet Theater. Leading up to the commission premiere will be dance-based works and lyrical, song-like pieces by American, British, and Russian composers. The chosen works display influences that trace back to origins in Spain, France, England, South America, Africa, and the United States. $20 at the door.
