Moderately ChallengingFor hardy explorers who enjoy a good physical challenge, spending most of their days on the go.
ChallengingGet ready to keep up with our highest-energy group. These demanding — and rewarding — programs are for seasoned outdoor enthusiasts.
Sing out at the 2014 Oregon Festival of American Music, reveling in the unforgettable songs from the great Hollywood films of the 1940s and 1950s. The 2013 festival, “Hooray for Hollywood,” was a memorable celebration of songbook classics from the 1930s and 1940s, but those were just the early years of Hollywood’s golden age. With so much great song material left on the cutting room floor, OFAM 2014 is picking up where last year’s festival left off. Attend “Hooray for Hollywood: The Sequel" as clarinetist Ken Peplowski and top guest musicians present the song and dance of the great Hollywood films of the 1940s and 1950s in seven all-new concerts and a unique “Jazz Party” finale. Alongside your non-singing friends attending the sister program, be there at five festival events and hear presentations by Shedd Faculty and guest artists. Enhance your learning with screenings of historical films, a visit to the University of Oregon and much more.


• The program includes B-level seats at five festival events: the Opening Gala Concert, a matinee performance of the Broadway musical “Gentlemen Prefer Blondes,” the Jazz Party and your choice of two other matinee concerts.
• Band leader Ken Peplowski invites you to sit in on a rehearsal for special insight into the concert-preparation process.
• Sing along to the great songs of Hollywood’s golden age, show off your talents by performing before an audience and enjoy a special discount on tickets to any additional performances you choose to attend.
