Kendall Concerts Presents: David Helfand and Justin Lader – Through the Portal and Beyond
David Helfand and Justin Lader return to OMSI for their second prodigious performance of space-inspired soundscapes. After their acclaimed album release of “Through the Portal,” a narrative cosmic journey of searching for lost loved ones, they return with a performance combining new instrumental pieces and classic selections from their album. This concert will showcase the duos new compilation album, “Valley of the Moon.” The album premieres celestial themed pieces, such as, “Crescent Sun,” a piece inspired by the 2017 solar eclipse that was viewed largely across Oregon. All music will be visually choreographed with the Kendall planetarium’s pairing of stunning astronomical images. We invite you to join us in a musical journey beyond the portal!
This performance will integrate an eclectic mix of instruments: Celtic Harp, viola, guitar, octave mandolin, percussion, keyboards, and the mellotron – an evocative synthesizer used in much progressive rock and music from the late 60’s through 70’s, including The Moody Blues, King Crimson, and Genesis
Doors open @ 6:30PM; Music starts @ 7:00PM | $15 tickets | Parking is free Tickets online- https://omsi.edu/calendar?page=3#nodeid-10333 503-797-4000
