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!


Be Part of Our Monthly Chamber Jams

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.

CRPDX Resumes in-person Chamber Jams and returns to The Waypost!

June Signup Sheet

Or if you’d like, you can just show up with your instrument and any music you’d like to read with others!

For those who are new to CRPDX, the chamber jam is essentially a classical open-mic—a casual, no-pressure environment where you can perform a piece you’ve been working on, and/or sight-read with others, while the audience is free to drink, socialize, and have a good time! That being said, the performers appreciate mindfulness of voice level and general attentiveness to others’ performances.

We generally limit playing time to 7 min per solo act and 12 min per ensemble (exceptions to this rule are at the discretion of our beloved chamber jam host, Margaret).
