Classical Revolution Portland incorporates as a Non-Profit

CRPDX, one of the mainstays in P-town's vibrant alternative classical music scene, has incorporated as a non-profit after much hard work. They are currently seeking Founding Revolutionaries---the first 50 people to join as a sustainer at $10/month or donate $100 outright get to be CRPDX's bff and listed as such on the website.

If you are able, please consider supporting this group that has done so much through the years to spread the gospel of classical music. By presenting chamber music in non-traditional venues and formats they have done excellent work towards the goal of reaching as many people as possible with this wonderful art-form. They are truly worth your hard-earned arts-supporting dollar, and any donation large or small is gratefully accepted. Viva la Revolucion!
