Starting a Classical Revolution
Mattie Kaiser, Arts Entrepreneur-in-Residence
Wednesday, March 20 | 7:00-8:30 | M242
Classical Revolution is an international network of people dedicated to making classical music accessible to the public. Through playing classical music in non-traditional venues and performing music using non-traditional instruments, Classical Revolution is breaking down barriers by introducing underserved populations to this amazing art form. Mattie Kaiser, Founder of Classical Revolution PDX, a Portland-based 501(c)(3), will discuss how to create your own performance opportunities, develop a need in a community, interest stakeholders, and create a market where none previously existed. With a mission and a plan hailed by the New York Times, the Economist, the San Francisco Chronicle and others, this presentation is not to be missed. For more information on Classical Revolution PDX, see http://www.classicalrevolutionpdx.org/about/. Dinner will be provided.
