BRAVO has dozens of community partnerships and one of our favorites is with the Young String Ensemble of the Portland Youth Philharmonic. Conductor Ines Voglar (also Asst Principal Second Violin with the Oregon Symphony) approached BRAVO about a joint performance in her first year leading the ensemble.  2018 marks the third year of this partnership, and we’re excited to bring this side-by-side performance to North Portland for the first time. Please join us to see the wonderful new auditorium at Roosevelt High School, the stage filled with young musicians having fun together.
