Classical Up Close is proud to bring Portland a fifth season of FREE chamber music concerts throughout the Portland Metro area! Organized and performed by musicians of the Oregon Symphony Orchestra, this series takes place April 22nd through May 7th and includes:
- full-length evening performances in neighborhood venues
- a special children’s concert to close the series on May 7th
- “BLITZ” performances: brief, 30 minute performances in unlikely venues and at unusual hours, meant to meet people where they live, work and play!
The series features a diverse array of venues including Trinity Episcopal Cathedral, Bob’s Red Mill Store and Restaurant, the Nordia House, Henry Higgins Boiled Bagels, Powell’s Books, the Hollywood Senior Center, Beaverton City Library, and more.
