Portland's Indies: Black Prairie, Holcombe Waller, Mirah, Oregon Symphony

BRETT CAMPBELL
7:30 pm., Saturday October 19 | $22-$71.
 
[FOLKESTRAL] As backward-looking orchestras everywhere desperately try to regain cultural relevance with sometimes-dubious, so-called “crossover” concerts, the Oregon Symphony—which has earned national attention for its occasional appearances with pop performers like Pink Martini, Antony, Rufus Wainwright and more—deserves bravos for trying to broaden its audience and connect with the city’s larger musical community. Here, it teams up with three of Portland’s most successful indie-pop acts: bluegrass-tinged Black Prairie; theatrical folkie Holcombe Waller; and winsome, protean singer-songwriter Mirah. Will it be a genuine creative collaboration or, as as too often happens, simply inflated pop songs played by a really big band? Here’s hoping the result is even greater than the sum of its substantial parts.
