Oregon Gov. Kate Brown invited two music ensembles to perform at her Inauguration on January 9: BRAVO Youth Orchestras, and the McMinnville High School Symphonic Choir. What Gov. Brown didn’t know is that these two groups have already started to collaborate on bringing El Sistema music education to McMinnville. Our joint performance at the Capitol was a beautiful example of serendipity.
BRAVO will again team up with McMinnville High School choral director Robin Pederson when BRAVO performs its first concert in McMinnville. We invite the community to come learn about BRAVO’s success in Portland since 2013 and join a conversation about how to launch an El Sistema-inspired program for the youth of Yamhill County.

McMinnville High School
615 NE 15th St McMinnville

The program will feature a repeat performance of “Together”, the anthem we performed jointly at the inauguration last month. Watch a short video of that performance here. We look forward to seeing you in McMinnville for an inspiring and energizing event.
