Portland Symphony Delights Huge Local Audience
News-Review Staff Writer
Roseburg came of age mu
sically Tuesday night when it
played host to what must cer
tainly be considered one of the
country's, finest orchestras, the
Portland Symphony.
The event will undoubtedly be
considered a musical and cut
tural milestone not only .for
Roseburg but for her sister
communities in the county who
thought so much of the import
ance of the occasion that they
sent school busses loaded with
appreciative young music lovers
to share in the musical treat.
It was amply evident that no
body was disappointed. The
standing ovation given conduc
tor Jacques Singer and his or
chestra at the conclusion of the
concert left no doubt at all that
it had been an exhilarating eve
ning and that musical appetites
had been whetted for more of I
the same fare. A crowd esti
mated at upward of 1,500 per
sons was loathe to leave the!

Appearance here of the Port
land Symphony, which to this
reviewer's knowledge is the
most concentrated presentation
of musical talent ever to be
heard locally, would seem des
tined to have a far-reaching ef
