If you missed our all-star Summer Showcase on June 22, 2013, you can ready all about it on Oregon ArtsWatch!
Stay tuned, we have more in store – chamber jams, outreach concert series, and our next big bash in October: Decomposer’s Night, just in time for Halloween!
During the 2nd Classical Revolution world conference, a group of amazing independent classical musicians will take the stage at the Star Theater in downtown Portland, bringing chamber music and art song to life in a beautiful venue that usually hosts indie music, rock, alternative performance arts and burlesque.
You can RSVP to this special performance on the Facebook event page. More details below…
We are thrilled to have Leo Daedalus of The Late Now as the host of the evening!
