musicians in conversational setting
Classical Up Close is proud to present a seventh season of FREE chamber music concerts throughout the Portland Metro area! Organized and performed by musicians of the Oregon Symphony Orchestra, this series takes place April 20 – May 5 and includes:
  • full-length evening performances in neighborhood venues
  • special children’s concerts on April 7th and May 5th
  • BLITZ performances: brief, 30-minute performances in untraditional venues, meant to meet people where they live, work and play!
The series features a diverse array of venues including coffeehouses, churches, book stores, libraries, and more. The interactive Event Map on the Classical Up Close website makes finding concerts in a specific area, by date, or by event type a snap! This is what building cultural community looks like: some of the finest musicians anywhere offering free access to their craft and music making. Many talk about breaking down barriers to art; these OSO musicians are hard-wired to do so… Grab a friend and go!
