From Mike Block, a busy chamber musician:
Excited for my second SOLD OUT show in a row here during this trip to Portland, OR! The only downside to this trip is that southwest airlines destroyed my cello… The picture here doesn’t show the fact that the neck fell off, and there were four large cracks on the top…
Thanks to local luthier Caitlin Pugh for her brilliant and quick restoration work, and the use of a loaner for these concerts! Tonight’s show is a duo concert with the great Rachel Barton Pine for “friends of chamber music” organization.
