Oregon Art Beat from Oregon Public Broadcasting came to film Classical Revolution PDX during its monthly Chamber jam a few months ago. Watch and listen and you will catch me playing my viola duet arrangement of Jimi Hendrix's "Foxy Lady" and my quartet arrangement of "Oye Como Va".


Large and warm turnout for an eclectic program of string quartet music.

Last night I had the distinct honor and pleasure of participating in the Classical Revolution PDX benefit concert to raise funds for Haiti Relief. Thank you to all the musicians, singers, and volunteers who put this together in less than 9 days, to the generous donors who were offering things right up to concert time for our silent auction, and to the overflow capacity crowd who came to listen and contribute to such a worthy cause. I am exhausted and at the same time overwhelmed with gratitude!
Here's a wonderful video of the final three works performed: Adagio for Strings by Barber, "Lacrymosa" from Mozart's Requiem, and "A little help from our friends".
Here's a video of Järnefelt's Berceuse arranged for 5 violas by Peggy Swafford
Here's a video of Peggy Swafford's "Remembrance" for 4 violas.
Here's a video archive of the whole concert.
100% of all proceeds (which exceeded $3600) are being forwarded to Partners in Health, a relief organization which deserves your generous support.
