ANNOUNCING THE 2019 PROGRAMS!
Classical Up Close is thrilled to announce the programs for the 2019 Festival of Free Chamber music. Go to our Events page to learn more.
Enjoy classical music up close when Oregon Symphony musicians and their special guests present an extraordinary series of 15 FREE chamber music concerts – six full-length evening concerts, six intimate Blitz performances, and three Kids’ Concerts for children of all ages and their families – in locations all around the Portland metro area!
2019 festival highlights include a performance by Suzanne Nance, the multi-talented President and CEO of All Classical Portland, who will perform an eclectic program ranging from German Lieder by Schubert to a classic American Musical ballad by Sondheim; the “Classical Up Close for Kids” concerts for children of all ages, introducing the instruments of the orchestra in a fun and educational way; and a brilliant selection of music old and new, including music by women composers Florence Price and Caroline Shaw.
In total, Classical Up Close will be presenting six FREE chamber music concerts, six intimate Blitz performances, and three Kids’ Concerts. The audience’s experience is intimate and relaxed — allowing you to ask questions, clap between movements if you want, take pictures to share with your friends — and you will get to know the musicians in a way no other concert program in Portland can offer. Bring your family and friends, and expect the unexpected: this is about bringing world-class music to you — up close!
