Niel DePonte, Principal Percussion of the Oregon Symphony, director of the OBT orchestra and founder of Metro Arts Inc., has teamed up with Classical Up Close and OPB’s April Baer to create an adult-oriented education event for our series. He’s calling it “Everything You Wanted to Know About Classical Music But Were Afraid to Ask…”
Niel is as passionate about music education as he is about music, so this is a great opportunity to learn more about your favorite sounds. For a look at the lighter side of Niel, see the video on the OSO Musicians YouTube channel of last year’s performance of “Table Music.” Niel is in the middle, flanked by Oregon Symphony Principal Timpani Jon Greeney on the left of the screen and Percussionist Sergio Carreno to your right.
