Last Call

It's Friday --and that means it's time for our weekly round-up of can't-miss arts opportunities that won't be around by this time next week.

Portland Chamber Orchestra performs "The Four Seasons" Saturday night at 7:30, in the Kaul Auditorium of Reed College. Love the Vivaldi this time of year!

Tahni Holt will dance the last "" dances TONIGHT at 7PM and 9PM, at the Ace Cleaners (403 SW 10th). Could be interesting -- a "rumination on society's voyeuristic tendencies and how they manifest in modes of architecture and technology."

Speaking of dance, the annual "Mad Hot Ballroom" gala fundraiser for Young Audiences is this Saturday, with
local celebs Connie Greenblatt, Anna Song, Ed Tonkin, Thomas Lauderdale, Paul King and Walter Jaffe among those being paired with professional ballroom dances. Tickets are steep at $250, but it is one of the "funner" fundraisers in town.

Monday night is Mayor Adams' follow-up Town Hall on arts and culture, and he will be joined on the stage by other electeds and art leaders like Jose Gonzales and Thomas Lauderdale. 5-7 PM at PCS ("The Bob"). Look for DK Row's story on Monday morning, and come get your copy of the region's new Creative Action Plan -- hot off the presses. It helps explain why I've been working so hard the past two weeks! (Past two years, actually.)

Hey, good blogging and commenting this week, people. Thank you all!
