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 is resuming in-person Chamber Jams!

Frenchman’s Bar Regional Park (Vancouver, WA)
Riverview North Picnic Shelter
Sunday August 15th, 1-7 PM
Music: 2:30-5:30 PM

Come hang out for the afternoon at this beautiful river beach park on the Columbia. Bring your instrument or voice, your beach attire, your friends, your kids, your pets, any water sporting gear, and some food and drink to share!

The jam will run from 2:30-5:30pm, in the Riverview North picnic shelter. We’ll have an electric keyboard, and there will be power, running water, disposable utensils and plates, and a grill.
Parking is $3/vehicle.  We recommend getting there early, by 1, to give yourself time to enjoy the water and the beach and to set up food before playing starts.  Between 2:30-5:30 we’d like all musicians who are playing to stay at/near the shelter to enjoy the music our colleagues make.  We will start to pack up at 5:30, but folks are welcome to stay at the beach and continue to play and frolic.  The sunset, with the view to the West, is gorgeous.
Please sign up here:
**For those age 12 or over: please do not participate unless you are fully vaccinated against Covid-19.**
Children under age 12 are welcome to participate regardless of vaccination status.

We can’t wait to see everyone again!

NOTE: We are still looking for a permanent venue. 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
