Williams will lead the Oregon Symphony in an exciting benefit concert of music from the movies on Monday, April 28 at the Arlene Schnitzer Concert Hall at 7:30 p.m. in Portland, OR.
Joining Williams on stage will be the violinist Bing Wang, Associate Concertmaster of the Los Angeles Philharmonic, to perform Williams’s own arrangements of music from Scent of a Woman and Fiddler on the Roof.
