Rocking, Boundary-Breaking String Quartet

Buy Tickets $17.50 $35

If you were picking words to describe a typical string quartet, "rocking" probably wouldn't be anywhere near the top of the list. But the Carpe Diem String Quartet is anything but typical, as evidenced by concert repertoire ranging from tango to folk, pop, rock, jazz and traditional works -- or the fact that they're probably the only string quartet to be called "fun and sexy" in the Washington Post. Boasting an eclectic group of past collaborators that includes Willy Porter, Jayme Stone and Yo Yo Ma, this group of versatile virtuosos is coming to the Winningstad Theatre in Portland to perform The Eight Seasons: Vivaldi's Four Seasons and Piazzolla's The Four Seasons of Buenos Aires.

Philip's Glass Menagerie: Modern Clowning

Buy Tickets $10 $20

A gentleman caller, a collection of fragile glass animals and Isaac Lamb as a Southern belle in a big dress. Elements of silent film, physical comedy and the music of Philip Glass highlight this poignant, hilarious and whimsical telling of Tennessee Williams' story of family facades, dreams of escape and the reality of the everyday. Supported by a Creative Heights grant from the Oregon Community Foundation, the CoHo Clown Cohort was created to cultivate an experimental ensemble of clown performers and recontextualize clowning in the modern theatre landscape. Philip's Glass Menagerie explores whether or not Williams' emotionally intimate story can be told truthfully and powerfully through the extreme physical expression of clowning. Enjoy the show at Portland's CoHo Theatre.
