Since 2009, 45th Parallel has happily demolished distinctions between old and new chamber music, bluegrass and jazz, fiddle and folk. By bringing fragmented audiences together, 45th Parallel reflects Portland’s surging creative communities in fresh and imaginative ways. The combination of their “360-degree programming”, the highest levels of skill and commitment from their performers, and their fostering of the next generation of musicians is what makes 45th Parallel so unique amid the city’s other chamber groups.

“Music is nothing less than a marvel of human expression”
