Door 7pm – All Ages Show – Bar with I.D.
Making their debut as a duo for the start of their West Coast Tour, The Old Church would like to welcome Moniclaire & G. Liu Jr. to Portland’s most intimate venue.
“With the songwriting chops to craft both hooky, pop-rock gems such as “Right Way” and moody torch songs like “Fast As I Can,” and a voice that makes them come alive, Velazquez sounds ready for the big time.” – Honolulu Magazine
“Full of multilayerd textures and harmonies, Sabrina’s versatile voice weaves and flows delicately over a wide range of indie alt rock and folk back drops.” – Contrast Magazine
G. Liu Jr. is a part of The Drowning Dreamers Band, an indie chamber folk ensemble, from Honolulu, HI, with a slate gray streak of shoegaze post-rock, running through its middle. With its debut, self-titled album, the band hopes to provide a fitting backdrop, in case you’ve found yourself in the midst of your next north Atlantic passage, Arctic expedition, Death Valley breakfast, Nebraskan power outage, or even just a momentary, extra bit of restlessness, in a dim or confined space you call home. But if there are other heightened scenarios, for which they may be of service, they hope you’ll let them know.

The Old Church is fortunate to have such a passionate and caring community to protect her now and into the future. Thanks to your tremendous response to our call for action, our ACT II Campaign to transform The Old Church into a world-class concert hall has been fully funded!
It gives us great pleasure to announce that with a recent grant, awarded to us by the M.J. Murdock Charitable Trust for $100,000, WE REACHED OUR GOAL of $240,000, and will be moving forward with the improvements in early January! A complete list of all supporting foundations and individuals is available on the ACT II page on our website.
Thanks to everyone who helped us ring in a new year and a new era for The Old Church on SUNDAY JANUARY 17th, 2016 3pm to 6pm. We celebrated the installation of state-of-the-art sound and lighting systems, a wood stage, a new bar, the exterior marquee, comfy new pew cushions and a whole lot of behind-the-scenes upgrades!
We’re raising money to transform the Old Church Concert Hall into the intimate, world class concert venue that Portlanders deserve. We’re thrilled to contemplate this future. Please help us make it possible. For all the details about what and how visit our Act II page.
You can also take a look at (and share) our video that introduces The Old Church and our vision for its future.
We’ll be getting solid Oak flooring for our stage, upgrading our lighting and sound systems, creating beautiful exterior signage, and crafting a custom bar. Thanks for your help!
It has been a life-long dream of David’s to perform all of the composition of Chopin, and now, in a series of concerts, occurring every other Wednesday through April, it has finally come to fruition. At the age of 10, pianist David Rothman won a scholarship in open competition, to study at the Yehudi Menuhin School, Surrey, England. Members of the jury included Yehudi Menuhin and Nadia Boulanger. At age seventeen he won a piano scholarship to study at the Curtis Institute of Music in Philadelphia, where he was a student of Mieczyslaw Horszowski and Seymour Lipkin. Well known in the piano community, he continues to perform in our Sack Lunch Concerts and other venues around town. All Ages Show – Bar with I.D. Door 6:30pm. Tickets sliding scale $15 -$5 at BrownPaperTickets.com.
