The Grammy award-winning Pacifica Quartet has become a Portland favorite. And no wonder! Their exuberant performance style, coupled with their virtuosity makes for such exciting concerts. This season they are joined by the legendary chamber musician Menahem Pressler. A founding member and the pianist of the Beaux Arts Trio for all of its 51 years, he has established himself among the world’s most distinguished and honored musicians, with a career that spans more than six decades.
