Lewis & Clark College Music Department and Portland Chamber Orchestra present Aldo Abreu in Concert playing a solo recorder recital in honor of members of the Portland Little Chamber Orchestra. This event is FREE and open to the public at the beautiful Agnes Flanagan Chapel.
The program starts with unaccompanied recorder music of all eras, including music by Van Eyck, Virgiliano, Bach, Lavista and Berio. The program concludes with Vivaldi’s C major concerto RV 443 for sopranino recorder and strings. The string ensemble is a quintet of members of the Portland Chamber Orchestra led by PCO concert master Andrew Ehrlich.
Award-winning performer, Aldo Abreu, has a strong tie to Lewis & Clark College and Portland Chamber Orchestra. His mother, cellist Janet Foxton, was a student at Lewis and Clark in 1956-57, during which time she took lessons with PCO founder Boris Sirpo and became a member of the Portland Chamber Orchestra and also the all women Portland Little Chamber Orchestra. This program on March 16 is presented to honor the members of the PLCO, many of whom plan to attend the event.
Announcing a series of special fund-raising events, open to the public and all PCO supporters. To continue our passion for playing exciting and new music for the Portland community and our metro-area supporters, PCO will be performing a combination of smaller and more “intimate” concerts, in addition to the traditional chamber orchestra concerts. Throughout the season, PCO will be partnering with talented Portland artists who will perform at the renowned jazz club, Jimmy Mak’s, in Portland's Pearl District. Enjoy an evening with PCO's guest performers, fine dining and refreshments and stay for additional jazz-fare offerd by Jimmy Mak's regulars.
Cost of admission is $25, with all funds going to support PCO's regular season concerts. Tickets are available at the door, by calling 503-771-3250, or
