  • Portland Columbia Symphony Orchestra
    Portland Columbia Symphony Orchestra satiates culture-hungry eardrums with creative, conceptual concerts studded with guest string-stars from across the country. The British Influence adheres to its name, focusing on three non-British composers—Romantic-era maestro Felix Mendelssohn, German composer Max Bruch, and 20th-century Australian pianist Percy Grainger—that were inspired to orchestrate masterful works after brushes with the landscapes, traditions, or culture of England, Ireland, and Scotland. Accomplished violinist and Portland native JiYun Jeong joins the symphony once again, helping to weave a tapestry of royal reminiscence on Bruch’s Violin Concerto no. 1 in G Minor.

  • 80's Video Dance Attack
    Before it mutated into a weaponized haze of reality shows, MTV aired a novelty known as the music video. These bite-sized works of art, which married pop songs to striking imagery, revolutionized the entertainment industry and ushered in an era of music known as “new wave.” For the task of curating and introducing these fresh sounds and flamboyant sights to audiences, MTV even created its own version of the disc jockey—the VJ. Though MTV has sent its stable of video jockeys out to pasture, VJ Kittyrox carries the pastel, shoulder-padded torch of Adam Curry and Nina Blackwood as she masterminds the 80s Video Dance Attack. For the last seven years, this popular shindig has united generations of Portlandians with its five-hour feast of '80s-centric sensation. Across 10-foot screens, VJ Kittyrox projects classic videos from artists such as Duran Duran and Michael Jackson as audiences of Breakfast Clubbers and Pretty in Pinkers perfect their cabbage patch, running man, and Pat Benatar shimmies. A bombastic, thumping sound system and a dazzling light show accentuate the time warp as audiences deck themselves in '80s garb and shake away memories of unsolved rubik’s cubes.

  • Portland State University
    In a sense, Portland State's Department of Theatre and Film is at the very center of the university. Its stately home, Lincoln Hall, was the first building erected on campus, in 1911. 475 plush seats curve around the stage of Lincoln Performance Hall inside, built with lots of leg room and a steep incline that insures excellent visibility even during plays cast with the tiniest of actors. The theater underwent a total renovation in 2010, and in addition to the visible facelift, backstage improvements now allow the department to mount even more elaborate productions.

  • Oregon Ballet Theatre
    Since debuting in 1989, the Oregon Ballet Theatre has built its reputation on two seemingly opposed elements: strict balletic classicism and newly commissioned works. Now the theatre enters a new era under artistic director Kevin Irving, whose background spans both classical and contemporary performances. As a dancer, Irving appeared with scores of companies, including the Alvin Ailey Training Ensemble and Elisa Monte Dance Company. In 1994, he retired from the stage to take a position as ballet master and head of the artistic department with Nacho Duato?s Compa?ia Nacional de Danza in Spain. Irving looks to take the Oregon Ballet Theatre to new heights, riffing off rave reviews from the Oregonian's Bob Hicks, who wrote that the theatre's Swan Lake is ?a work of sumptuous geometric balances that echo the story's mirror-image theme.?

  • White Bird
    If you imagine Cedar Lake Contemporary Ballet to be a group of 16 hard-bodied dancers who fling themselves across genres and around the stage like marionettes tangled in the strings of heartbreaking passion and emotion aching to be released, then you're exactly right (lucky guess). The company of talented dancers moves to the discipline's latest international choreographies, garnering critical acclaim in spades.
