Marylhurst musicians to perform Going Boldly in Lake Oswego


Music lovers in Lake Oswego and West Linn will have the opportunity to enjoy a unique concert on Wednesday.

“Going Boldly in Lake Oswego” will be performed at Lake Oswego United Methodist Church at noon by a chamber music orchestra composed entirely of Marylhurst University graduates and faculty members.

The concert is the brainchild of one of Marylhurst’s newest graduates, Linda Woody.

“This is really cool,” said Woody, a resident of West Linn. “I am so excited. The goal was to present a free concert of lesser known but accessible gems of modern chamber music performed by local musicians — during the daytime, in an accessible venue — for an audience of local residents who might not be inclined to go to an evening concert in Portland at high prices, parking, etc.”

While Woody will be leading the Lake Carillon hand bell choir of Lake Oswego United Methodist Church, she will be joined by Sally Harmon, piano; John Paul, violin; Tamara Still, organ; Brian Gardiner, percussion; LeeAnn McKenna, flute; and Peter Zisa, guitar.

The event will showcase compositions by 20th and 21st century composers, and two of them are by Woody herself, one for the hand bell choir and the other for vibraphone and guitar.

“We are able to have this concert because of a very generous grant from the Clackamas County Art Alliance,” Woody said.

The concert is being done in association with March Music Moderne, a Portland music festival. This will be the organization’s first concert in Lake Oswego.

Lake Oswego United Methodist Church is located at 1855 S. Shore Blvd. Admission to the concert is free.
