Our Act II campaign is well underway. Our goal is to raise $240,000 so we can transform The Old Church Concert Hall into an intimate world-class concert hall for all Portlanders. Thanks for your support!

To date we’ve raised $140,000!

The Autzen Foundation awarded us $10,000 for a new projector and The Jackson Foundation gave us $1,000. The Ann and Bill Swindells Charitable Trust and the Wheeler Foundation both awarded us $5,000 and most recently the Collins Foundation awarded $25,000! Thanks! We have applied for other foundation and charitable trust grants and will begin to hear back from them sometime this fall.

Our marquee is fully funded, in the ground, and looking great. A big heartfelt thanks to Rosey Retirement Resources!

We still have a ways to go to but we are feeling optimistic that with your help we can do it. We are so thankful for the generosity and caring that so many have shown. To help us reach our goal you can contribute directly to ACT II by sponsoring a pew cushion. Click here to find out how you can GRAB A SEAT at The Old Church Concert Hall!

In the meantime we still need your help. Thanks!

Chopin Poster

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.

Thank you to PortlandPianoCompanyLogo (2)  for sponsoring these concerts.
