The Oregon Symphony performs at Benaroya Hall in a program including Narong Prangcharoen's Phenomenon. The music of Thai composer Narong Prangcharoen has been called “absolutely captivating” (Chicago Sun Times). Although still in his early thirties, Prangcharoen has established an international reputation and is recognized as one of Thailand’s leading composers. Prangcharoen has received many international prizes, including the Alexander Zemlinsky International Composition Competition Prize, the 18th ACL Yoshiro IRINO Memorial Composition Award, the Pacific Symphony’s American Composers Competition Prize, the Toru Takemitsu Composition Award, and most recently, the Annapolis Charter 300 International Composers Competition Prize. In 2007, the Thai government named Prangcharoen a Contemporary National Artist and awarded him the Silapathorn Award, one of Thailand’s most prestigious honors.
