Southpark Seafood Grill and Wine Bar

Monday we stopped in Southpark’s Wine bar before an Oregon Symphony Concert.

I enjoyed a glass of the house red wine. It was a smooth red blend. The wine is nicely priced at seven dollars a glass. The tables are small and the place is cozy. The food served at Southpark is made from fresh local ingredients.

The concert was a woodwind lover’s delight. I was trilled to hear all the oboe solos. It was wonderful to listen to the quiet dissonant movements in En Saga by Jean Sibelius. Pekka Kuusito did a wonderful job playing Stravinsky’s Concerto in D major for violin and Orchestra. After three ovations Pekka came back on stage and played a little Bach on his violin. After the intermission the Orchestra played Symphony number 4 in F minor by Tchaikovsky. A pleasant way to end the evening.
