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!
Each week, All Classical Portland presents Thursdays @ Three, performances showcasing local and visiting musicians, broadcast live from our studios. Christa Wessel hosts the live show for an intimate studio audience. Programs range in length from 20 minutes to an hour. Visit the All Classical Portland Audio Archive to hear the most recent Thursdays @ Three performances.
These small audience shows fill up fast. To be part of our studio audience, please RSVP for an event below. We request that you limit your attendance to one Thursdays @ Three performance per month. Since it is a live broadcast, we request that very young children enjoy the show from home.
Seating: Accessible seating is always available. You can reserve accessible seating by phone (503-802-9403), online through the RSVP form below, or in person at the time of the performance.
Entrance: Our building has an accessible entrance, as well as an elevator that operates between the street level and our 2nd floor office.
Drop-off Zone: A curbside drop-off zone is in front of our building to allow easy access.

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.
Thursdays @ Three is made possible by the community we serve and by:
