Concert Schedule

February 17 
Flutist antics! Just the way to chase away winter. And, indeed, with his marathon schedule of teaching locally for Bravo Youth Orchestras and many concert engagements, it’s lucky for us that Adam Eccleston so wanted to join in the joy that is Music in the Woods. And, wait ‘til you see who he brings along!

March 24
Blown away? It’s not just those March winds! It may be the music from The Chameleon Winds, that terrific ensemble of flute, clarinet, oboe, horn, and bassoon, that charmed us so much last year, now on their return engagement.

April 14
The grand tradition of the astounding violinist and pianist in a recital! Music blooming to rival spring flowers! Becky Anderson’s stunning recital on our stage last year left us all breathless, and not in a bad way, and we’ve been aching to hear her pyrotechnics and suave musicality ever since. She’s on her way back to us, this time with a surprise pianist! (We’ll have her collaborator, pianist Anna Petrova, back sometime soon.)

May 19
Hometown boy’s triumphal return! With chamber music friends! Actually, pianist Johnandrew Slominski, now professor of piano at Linfield College, has been an exceptional virtuoso since his Portland teenage days – not so very long ago. He will be joined by favorite collaborators from the orchestral world, with music that emphasizes the “triumphant.”
