The Oregon East Symphony's Young People's Concert is ready to spin into orbit after a three-year hiatus. The free event is Friday, Nov. 4, 1 p.m. at the Vert Auditorium, 480 S.W. Dorion Ave., Pendleton.

Held in conjunction with the symphony's season-opener — featuring selections from John Williams' "Star Wars Suite" and Gustav Holst's 1918 tone poem, "The Planets" — the special musical field trip incorporates an educational component. Created for area fourth and fifth graders, the concert includes an introduction to instruments played in the symphony and a discussion about the history of the music performed.
