Portland, February 2nd, 2013.  45th Parallel’s  “Club Mod, a Century of American Music” was an artistic celebration hosted by Robert McBride. The All Classical Radio host offered historical perspective on the music from the 45th Parallel, he’s joined on stage by artistic director, Greg Ewer, Adam LaMotte, Susan Smith, Justin Kagan and Hillary Schoap.  10-year-old Max Ball, here with Greg Ewer, was surprised and delighted to have his composition Piano Quartet performed by 45th Parallel. Max Ball received a well-deserved standing ovation.

Here’s an example of  a performance from artists of  45th Parallel.

45th Parallel, founded in 2009, produces and presents chamber music concerts featuring some of the most exciting musicians of the Pacific Northwest with occasional guest artists. Creative programming and intimate concert experiences are hallmarks of 45th Parallel, which endeavors to bring the Northwest’s rich chamber music culture out of the living room and onto the stage. We have brought performers together from the Oregon Symphony, Portland Baroque Orchestra, Seattle Symphony, Philharmonia Baroque Orchestra and others, in some of the most talked-about musical evenings in Portland during the last few years. See our Musicians page for a complete list of past 45th Parallel performers.
