This past weekend was the 24/7 concert at WK. It was a huge success drawing so many people that some had to be turned away.
Many stayed for the big finale of Beethoven's Symphony No. 9. Mathew Carroll is quoted as having "goosebumps" from the performance.
Here is a small news clip from KGW local News channel 8 about the event.
KGW 8 News report on 24/7 concert
Thanks to everyone who helped make this event a success.
By mid-March, the United States will have been at war in Afghanistan and Iraq for seven years. To mark this important, if tragic, anniversary, over 150 of the Portland area’s best classical, contemporary and world musicians are uniting to make a giant musical gift to the city and beyond.
“24/7” is a series of 24 dramatic concerts, each starting upon the hour, from 7:00 p.m. Saturday, March 21, and continuing through to 7:00 p.m., Sunday, March 22, in the W+K Atrium.
WK Radio will broadcast a portion of the event.
