Classical Revolution PDX Summer Showcase

BRETT CAMPBELL
9 pm Saturday, June 22., Saturday June 22 | $5-$15.
Star Theater
13 NW 6th Ave.
 
Since igniting in San Francisco in 2006, the movement that’s been putting affordable classical music in bars, coffee shops and other informal settings has spread to nearly 40 other cities around the world. But Portland’s chapter stands tall, with its monthly chamber jams now always filling the Waypost—two more added in different neighborhoods—and new music by local composers increasingly featured. The Portland chapter will host the second International Classical Revolution conference, culminating in this all-star showcase concert hosted by The Late Now’s Leo Daedalus and featuring new music by local composers. The performances include Damen Liebling’s String Quartet No. 1 (which won this year’s CRPDX composition competition) performed by members of the DTQ Ensemble; Emily Doolittle’s “Social Sounds From Whales at Night” played by Catherine Lee on oboe d’amore, percussion and electronics; Brent Weaver’s song cycle “Caminos” setting texts by the early 20th-century Spanish poet Antonio Machado and performed by tenor Ken Beare and pianist Maria Choban; CRPDX director Christopher Corbell’s settings of poems by Charles Baudelaire for the a capella vocal trio Bergerette; and more, including some of those old dead guys like Haydn, played by visiting and local revolutionaries.
