She and Lauderdale have a long history of collaborating dating back to a 2005 show at PICA’s Time-Based Art Festival. They’ve since performed together at venues ranging from the stripper’s stage of Mary’s Club to the architectural beauty of the Sydney Opera House, not to mention recorded an album that will come out one of these days. In addition, of course, to playing the world’s most prestigious venues on their own. But they’ll reach new heights on September 14 at the Arlene Schnitzer Concert Hall in performance with the full Oregon Symphony for TBA:13.
Tickets went on sale on Friday. While it’s a long cry from the (then) smoky stage of Darcelle’s, it might just be the first time you see someone crowd surf at a symphony show. I just hope she gets a couple of the classical musicians to go with her.
This contest is now closed. Tickets available through the Oregon Symphony.
