CANCELED – April 19, 2:00pm: BRAVO at Central Library

BRAVO was psyched to be invited to perform at downtown Portland’s Central Library!  Our first-year strings from BRAVO Rosa Parks were scheduled to take the ‘stage’ in the Collins Gallery on the third floor.  But PPS school closures, and Multnomah County library closures, will preclude that.  We hope to have an opportunity to do this at a later date.
