Cross-Pollination!

Oh, you guys!

We have a really great thing coming up on Friday, October 17th at Lewis & Clark College.

We had planned on having the Unbande present a concert for us, but that has been put on hold. You can still check them out on CD Baby, though! Especially recommended is their sweet version of Brandenburg 6.

But we got something really great to take their place: PORTLAND CELLO PROJECT!

These guys have agreed to come play for us, and to give a workshop/demo on various cross-genre topics. They’ll bring some electronic gadgets and are down with a demo-heavy Q&A session. If you’ve ever had an interest in arranging works for your instrument, in playing pop, rock or jazz, in getting a group of your-favorite-instrument together to do something artistically worthwhile, in becoming the number one seller on Amazon classical… well, that last one they may not be able to pass along but we can all congratulate them anyway.

So, as always, bring your viola and your violist friends. In fact this time around, all instruments are welcome!

Check out PCP online and come back here for updates soon.

Sweet Music Deal

Hey there!

Just wanted to let you all know we have a composer in our midst. Peggy Swafford, longtime contributor to the Viola Society and to Oregon’s music scene in general, has hooked us up with a means of purchasing her works. If you were at our first play-in this year in Portland, you’ll remember these fun, diverse pieces.

Check our classifieds (the link is over there —> in the right side column) for more info.
Thanks to most excellent Peggy and just a reminder that you can post info to our classifieds for free by simply emailing Miriam.
