Classical Up Close 2022

The 2022 Classical Up Close festival of FREE chamber music kicks off on April 26, 2022, at 7:00 PM PT at Rose City Park Presbyterian Church in Northeast Portland! From contemporary pieces by living composers to timeless favorites by old masters, there is something for everyone this year.
