Roberta Flack With the Oregon Symphony

AP KRYZA
7:30 pm., Thursday February 14 | $43-$128.
 

[CLASSICAL SOUL] Still amazing at age 75, Roberta Flack’s relatively quiet life belies her status among the best of the soul divas, whose timeless hits include classics like “The First Time I Ever Saw Your Face,” “Killing Me Softly With His Song” and other staples of the baby-making heyday of soul. Yet Flack never rose to the status of contemporaries like Diana Ross and Aretha Franklin—probably because she wasn’t a horrible egomaniac. Here, the Oregon Symphony continues a long history of putting the greats onstage and giving them the classy, elegant opportunity to do what they do…which hopefully doesn’t include cuts from last year’s Yoko Ono collaboration, Let It Be Roberta, because, well, no. No, thank you. 



Where: Arlene Schnitzer Concert Hall
