Back in Nov ’07, I got to see Matt Haimovitz play with members of the Portland Cello Project in the music section of a book shop in downtown Portland. I wrote about that after seeing the show. The space was simply packed with people, wall to wall. It was definitely interesting.
Looks like Haimovitz is back in town, and a few other local cello players will be opening, at the Doug Fir on Jan 21st at 9pm. (There’s little bit of confusion because the Doug Fir ticket info says 9pm, but an email I got suggested that some of the cellists might start playing around 8:30pm, but I’m going to go with Doug Fir’s statement of time.)
