Like you, we have been closely watching what is happening with the coronavirus (COVID-19), around the world and at home. We are following the recommended guidelines of local, state, and national officials, and for that reason we are placing our Thursdays @ 3 live performances on pause. We will resume live performance broadcasts when it is safe for our staff and our community.
In the meantime, host Christa Wessel is cooking up some creative ways to keep the music flowing, and that will include some live, pre-recorded music and interviews from local performers (more information about the artists below!), as well as some curated Best of T@T shows for your listening pleasure. Please tune in to All Classical Portland or listen via our online stream!
Check back on this page for more information about when the show will be open to the public again. We look forward to welcoming you to a future event soon!
Thursdays @ Three Host Christa Wessel
Since arriving here from North Carolina in 2007, I’ve traveled all around the state and have fallen in love with the high deserts of Eastern Oregon and the magically blue waters of Crater Lake. I also relish a stormy weekend at the Oregon Coast.
I adore the natural beauty of Oregon as much as I cherish the cultural beauty of our region. I could easily find myself in a concert hall every night of the week! I enjoy it all: early music, contemporary music, symphonic music and opera. So as not to exhaust myself I deliberately set aside time to play nerdy board games with friends, or will reserve a lazy afternoon to read a big novel. (I adore Franzen, Eugenides, Chabon and the like.)
I had once hoped to be a professional French horn player – I attended Northwestern University with that aspiration – but I graduated with a Bachelors of Music in Arts Administration. I still tootle my horn occasionally, and also enjoy picking up a ukulele from time to time.
