FREE concert by selected members of the Oregon Symphony during their "Classical Up Close" week. World class music for free, how can you beat that ?!!!
I hope you're not waiting for me to post individual events like this for the Classical Up Close concerts. There are too many to list, which is why you might want to visit their website:
I am posting the concerts that I plan to attend, but there is no need for you to limit your attendance to just those concerts. There are many more concerts listed at the above website for you to choose from. Once this week is over, it's over -- the FREE Classical Up Close concerts end with this concert, Sunday 5/12!
Sonata for Trombone & Piano (Ewazen) – Aaron LaVere, trombone; Cary Lewis, piano
Five Melodies for Violin & Piano (Prokofiev) – Inés Voglar, violin; Cary Lewis, piano
Horn Quintet in E-flat major (Mozart) – Joseph Berger, horn; Greg Ewer, violin; Joël Belgique and Charles Noble, violas; Heather Blackburn, cello
Clarinet Trio in A minor, Op. 114 (arr. vla) (Brahms) – Charles Noble, viola; Heather Blackburn, cello; Cary Lewis, piano
Program and performers subject to change. Please note that not all pieces will be presented in their entirety; some will be one or two selected movements. There could be minor changes before all is said and done.
Let's get there at 7:00 (curtain is at 7:30). PLEASE note the suggested time to meet -- 7:00. Arrive after 7:00 at your own risk. I fully expect this concert to be completely full, standing-room-only.
