2014-2015 Season

Dirty, Stupid Music

You know that I have composed cafe-concert music.
I gave this sort of music up long ago. 
That was no field for me to be working in. 
It is more stupid and dirty than anything. 

- Erik Satie

Join us as we take a delicious peek into the history of cabaret from its earlier years. Celebrating the music of Schoenberg, Weill, Satie, and Poulenc, combined with today's masters of cabaret -- Bolcom, Heggie, Bucchino, and others. This evening of provocative and heart-wrenching music features some of the hottest singers in Portland -- Vakare Petroliunaite, Liz Bacon, Beth Madsen Bradford, Stephen Marc Beaudoin, and Joe Theissen -- with the illustrious David Saffert at the piano at the fabulous restaurant and wine bar, Vie de Boheme. We invite you to nourish your senses in this (far from) stupid and (often) dirty music.

Our host has opened her stunning Northwest Portland home with its view overlooking our beautiful city to support this afternoon of musical entertainment. You'€™ll enjoy hors d'oeuvres, desserts, and wines as our salon of singers entertain you with beautiful 19th century art song and ensembles.

War and Peace

Saturday, June 13, 2015, at 7:30 p.m. at Lincoln Recital Hall, Portland State University, 1620 SW Park Avenue, Portland, Oregon.

We close the 2014-15 season with some of the most moving repertoire written for voices in the twentieth and twenty-first centuries. Schoenberg's stirring 1907 masterpiece "Friede auf Erden" (Peace on Earth) joins Poulenc'€™s "Figure humaine" (The Human Face), a devastating 1945 work composed in secret and smuggled out of occupied France to receive its premiere in England. The program will combine these major works with solo vocal reflections and smaller choral repertoire in an unforgettable musical event.

Season subscribers will receive premium seating. 
Individual tickets: adults $22, seniors $15, and students/artists $11.
