For our season opener, we reflect on our personal stories and the journeys that brought us here. We offer the epic landscapes of Grieg’s String Quartet, Beethoven’s “Song of Holy Thanksgiving,” and a set of traditional fiddle tunes as hymns of gratitude for the earth that sustains us and the communities we share. This program will be the centerpiece of our Portland Launch, a full weekend of concerts, workshops, and other events to introduce Palaver to the Portland community.
