Snow and ice postpone Chanticleer concert but not push/FOLD/PSC’s ‘Vespers’

Chanticleer goes with the flow and reschedules Friday’s Reed performance for Saturday at PSU's Lincoln Hall; performances of Rachmaninoff’s ‘Vespers’ with push/FOLD and Portland Symphonic Choir will proceed as planned at The Reser.


Chanticleer Performance is Rescheduled

OAW has just received word from Friends of Chamber Music that the Friday, January 19 Chanticleer performance at Kaul Auditorium has been canceled due to weather conditions hindering safe parking and foot traffic on the Reed College Campus.

(UPDATE, 4:15 pm Thursday, Jan.18:  Friends of Chamber Music has just announced that Chanticleer’s cancelled performance has been rescheduled and moved to a new location. Kudos to  management and to the singers for making this happen. Current ticket holders will be able to see the world renowned ensemble at Lincoln Hall Auditorium on the Portland State University campus on Saturday at 2 p.m.  The most up-to-date information is available on the FOCM website here.)

Chanticleer Music Director Tim Keeler, in last week’s Oregon Arts Watch preview of this annual event, talked about how the singers sometimes have to “go with the flow” when on tour. Don’t worry, they are fine–they even made it to town, and in the next days they will “flow” with the melting ice down to Eugene for their Sunday performance.  

Check the FOCM website for further information if you have tickets for this performance.

Push/FOLD Plans to Proceed with Rachmaninoff Vespers Performance

Push/FOLD dancers and Portland Symphonic Choir singers are still looking forward to a world premiere collaborative performance this weekend at Beaverton’s Patricia Reser Center for the Arts, January 19-21. In last week’s Oregon Arts Watch preview of this event a key word was “move.” Of course, since then we’ve had a weather event that made it almost impossible to do so, short-circuiting rehearsal plans and even bringing some water damage to The Reser itself.  But the show is still on.

Chris Ayzoukian, The Reser’s executive director, responded by phone to OAW about the extent of the water damage. He is pleased to report that the leak has been repaired and, aside from a slight eyesore, the beautiful facility is open to scheduled events. The Reser’s inclement weather procedure is to contact ticket holders in the event of cancellation. If you are unable to attend in person, The Reser box office (971-501-7722) will help you with ticket exchanges. 

But if you cannot attend in person, you can still experience the performance. You–and your friends around the world–can livestream any of the three performances. More information is available at the push/FOLD website here.
