Event Details

Join us in welcoming jazz great and celebrated opera composer Terence Blanchard (Fire Shut Up in My Bones and Champion) and an incredible line-up to the Portland Opera stage for this one-night-only gala celebration. Featuring The E-Collective and Turtle Island Quartet with the Portland Opera Orchestra, we’ll hear from guest stars for an unforgettable night of musical fusion and ensemble work.

Portland Opera’s Co-Artistic Advisor Karen Slack makes her Portland Opera debut, with guest artist and Portland-favorite Will Liverman. Plus, Maestro Damien Geter (Co-Artistic Advisor and Interim Music Director) makes his Portland Opera conducting debut.

A limited number of post-show celebration reception tickets will be made available for $250, in part as a tax-deductible contribution in support of Portland Opera’s bright future.
