What is Classical Revolution PDX?
Classical Revolution PDX is a nonprofit organization dedicated to enriching and educating our community by making classical music accessible to the public. We allow people to hear classical music in their everyday lives by taking chamber music out of the recital hall and playing it in alternative venues. We strive to preserve and revitalize classical music to make the public aware that this music can be enjoyed by anyone. It is our goal to broaden the definition of chamber music and make it a vibrant part of our community. We believe that when we play chamber music, we create that community, and anyone can be involved regardless of income, race, class, gender or age.
Classical Revolution is also—and more importantly—a community of musicians and composers who share the vision of making classical music more accessible. Classical music lovers are welcome too!
A more or less “open mic” for classical music and classical musicians. Prepared performances, sight-reading, and ad hoc. Professionals, hobbyists, and beginners making music. Join our Google Group to coordinate with other musicians and composers.
Monthly Chamber Jams the Second Sunday of Every Month.
UPDATE March 13, 2020: In light of the increasing prevalence of COVID-19 in our community, the CRPDX Board has decided to cancel this month’s chamber jam.
We appreciate your understanding, and we will continue to assess the risk level on an ongoing basis.
NOTE: We are changing venues starting March 2020. Please check back here for updates on times and location. If you know any local venues that would be interested in hosting these monthly gatherings (that either has or can permanently house an upright piano), let us know ASAP on our Facebook page or in the Google Group
