the classical beaver is a completely unauthorized space devoted to the oregon symphony – the original local band of pdx. while the author would love to post comments on every happening of the orchestra, he does not have a trust fund and must maintain gainful employment to help pay the mortgage and buy kitty litter; therefore, the focus of this blog is limited to the regular straight-up classical season (still a shit-ton of amazing music, btw).
after narrowly escaping an oppressive suburban childhood in ohio filled with nothing but adult contemporary pop, the cb’s creator is a relative newbie to classical music… someone who loves tom waits, miles davis, and the dixie chicks just as much as he loves gustav mahler.
if you’d like to contact the author, by all means, do so… firstname.lastname@example.org
