Solo Together: A Virtual Un-Gala

5:30-9:30 p.m. Thursday, free, donations greatly appreciated. portlandsymphony.org/event/solo-together

Portland Symphony Orchestra invites you to a virtual soiree that will feature an online auction, commentary from Music Director Eckart Preu and Executive Director Carolyn Nishon, and performances from PSO musicians Charles Dimmick (concertmaster/violin), Sasha Callahan (violin), Leo Eguchi (cello), Greg Simonds (percussion) and Lauren Winter (horn). PSO’s fundraising wine dinner was canceled, so proceeds from this event will support their programs that enrich the lives of more than 100,000 kids and adults every season. Raise the bar by ordering local takeout and beverages and putting on your finest threads. And remember, life without PSO would b flat.
