The new year also means it's time to start planning for the next Classical Up Close festival! Our organizing committee met at Sarah and Vali's house on Monday, September 3rd to discuss dates, venues, and performers. The committee has seen a little change over the summer, as we welcome our two newest members: Mai Nguyen and Alicia Waite! Their experience and input is invaluable.
Details about our seventh festival of free chamber music will be coming soon, but first, we have some very exciting news! This month we will begin a series of monthly outreach concerts for under-served communities throughout the Portland area called Pop-up Performances. We are excited to partner with agencies and facilities who do so much for our community.
As always, thank you for your continued support. None of what we do would be meaningful if it weren't for you!
