Cascadia Composers is honored to share that founding member and longtime co-director Tomáš Svoboda (1939-2022) will be remembered at a special concert of his works:
Saturday October 21, 2023 @ 3:00 PM
Lincoln Recital Hall (LH 75), 1620 SW Park Ave. in Portland, Oregon


The concert is free and open to the public.

School of Music & Theater faculty members Joel Bluestone, Sydney Carlson, Hamilton Cheifetz, Chuck Dillard, Bryan Johanson Julia Lee, Carol Sindell, and Stan Stanford join community musicians Mark Goodenburger, Susan Dewitt Smith, and Nancy Ives to honor the memory of their colleague Tomáš Svoboda with this concert of his chamber works.

Professor Emeritus Tomáš Svoboda (1939-2022) was a French-born Czech-American composer and pianist who taught music at Portland State University for 31 years before retiring in 2001. His catalog contains more than 200 compositions, and his music has been performed well over 1000 times worldwide. His compositions cover a wide range of emotional terrain, often contrasting consonance with dissonance, tenderness with intensity, and playfulness with gravity. His 2003 Marimba Concerto, performed by the Oregon Symphony and soloist Neil DePonte Duponte, received a 2003 Grammy Award nomination. He was a founding member of Cascadia Composers in 2008 and married to fellow artist Jana DeMartini. He suffered a major stroke in 2012, but continued to connect with musicians performing his music in the final decade of his life. Although he was a favorite composer in Oregon, he never quite received the widespread international recognition that his music deserved. A large community of musicians, former students, and family remember his humility, wit, and humor. His legacy lives on in his music.

For more information contact Bonnie Miksch  See the original announcement on the PSU School of Music and Theater website.

In Good Hands 2023

In Good Hands 2023

Cascadia Composers is proud to announce the ninth concert of its 2022-23 season:


In Good Hands

Teaching tomorrow’s musicians about today’s music

Saturday, July 15, 2023 @ 4:00pm

Lincoln Recital Hall, Room 75 @ Portland State University


It was a bright day for Oregon composers when Dr. David Bernstein decided to move to Portland from Cleveland, Ohio. Not only was he instrumental in founding Cascadia Composers, a chapter of the National Association of Composers USA (NACUSA), but he also had a vision of a concert program for pre-college students. Today, that vision is a reality in Cascadia Composers’ In Good Hands, an annual concert series where composers work with young musicians to help them grow as artists.

This year’s concert will take place on Saturday, July 15, 2023, at 4:00pm in Lincoln Recital Hall, Room 75, at Portland State University. Students between the ages of seven and eighteen will perform pieces written by Cascadia Composers: some students will perform a piece written specifically for them, others will present works selected by their teachers from a score call to all 100+ Cascadia members. The composers and students collaborate to develop their performance and further their understanding of the piece and of contemporary music in general. Twenty-six students, eleven teachers, and fifteen Cascadia Composers will be represented. This is an all too rare development opportunity for these young artists.  Admission is free to all!

Members of Cascadia Composers are proud of our In Good Hands project and concert series, and of our commitment to expanding the horizons of young musicians.

A Ligeti Odyssey: The First 100 years

A Ligeti Odyssey: The First 100 years

Cascadia Composers is excited to announce the eighth concert of its 2022-23 season:


A Ligeti Odyssey: The First 100 Years

Music by and about pathbreaking composer Gyὂrgy Ligeti

Sunday, June 4th, 2023 @ 7:30 pm, doors open at 7:00 pm

The Old Madeleine Church

3123 NE 24th Ave, Portland, OR

Click logo for lots of Schott’s Ligeti centennial info!

Cascadia Composers is celebrating the centennial of the birth of Gyὂrgy Ligeti, the composer whose music captured the ear of the public when film directors, including Stanley Kubrick and Martin Scorsese, used his stunning sounds in films such as 2001: A Space Odyssey, The Shining, Shutter Island, and Eyes Wide Shut. The concert will feature works from throughout Ligeti’s career, including Six Bagatelles for wind quintet, selections from his Etudes for Piano (which inspired the biggest epidemic of etude-writing since the days of Chopin), and his surrealistic fantasy for soprano and piano, Mysteries of the Macabre.

The concert will also include premieres by members of Cascadia Composers whose music reflects Ligeti’s continuing, inspiring influence today: Portland composer and Lewis & Clark professor Michael Johanson; Portland composer, pianist, and educator Gary Lloyd Noland; Eugene-based composer and pianist Paul Safar; Bay Area composers John Bilotta and Antonio Celaya; European-trained composer Alex Shapira, and Italian composer, pianist and sound designer Daria Baiocchi.

Performers are wind ensemble Arcturus Quintet, coloratura soprano Madeline Ross, violinist Emily Cole and flutist Zachariah Galatis, and pianists Myrna Setiawan, Rebecca Stager, Colleen Adent, Ben Gimm and Alexander Schwarzkopf. The Arcturus Quintet features Joe Berger, horn; Zachariah Galatis, flute; James Shields, clarinet; Steve Vacchi, bassoon; and Karen Wagner, oboe.


Catch this great preview!  Portland music blogger/writer James Bash has a fascinating article in The Oregonian, click the link and check it out!

If you missed our preview on All Classical’s Thursdays @ Three, just follow the link to find the archive (in the On Demand section just below their next show info), viewable through June 8. The Ligeti Odyssey segment starts just after 28:40 (although you should also check out the first segment featuring Oregon Symphony principal Nancy Ives, not only as cellist but as vocalist and composer).

If you missed Monday evening’s three-hour preview exploring Ligeti’s works on KBOO’s A Different Nature, with cellist Diane Chaplin (of Portland Cello Project and more) performing Ligeti’s Sonata for Solo Cello live in the studio, stay tuned for a link to their archived stream.

Tickets are $25 for general admission, $15 for seniors and working artists, $10 for students, free for children 12 and under. Tickets are also available at the door.

Ligeti grew up a Hungarian-speaking Jew in a part of Romanian Transylvania that had been part of Hungary before WWI. He survived perilous internment in a WWII slave labor camp and lost most of his immediate family in the Holocaust. He lived most of his life a cosmopolitan exile. Yet Ligeti retained an inexhaustible curiosity that led him to explore Romanian folk music, Afro-Caribbean rhythms, jazz, and Banda polyphony from sub-Saharan Africa; fractals, visual illusions and the art of M.C. Escher; the player piano music of Conlon Nancarrow; the minimalism of Steve Reich; drum machines, auditory illusions, Lewis Carroll’s “Alice” books… even the Marx Brothers! Ligeti’s music evokes compelling images, otherworldly landscapes and powerful emotions. Today, 17 years after his death, he remains a vital force in music, as will be heard in every work, both new and old.

If you’re really excited about this concert and you’re feeling generous, please consider making an additional donation, via clicking “Donate” in the upper RH corner (earmarking Ligeti in the PayPal form that comes up), or if you’d like a premium or two in the bargain, check out the independent curators’ GoFundMe campaign (click highlighted text to open).

Fierce, Fabulous, and Fully Coiffed (Eugene edition)

Fierce, Fabulous, and Fully Coiffed (Eugene edition)

One night only!


Saturday, May 20, 2023     *     Live show at 7PM (PDT)

at the First Christian Church, 1166 Oak Street, Eugene, OR 97401


Drag queens! Rants! Jazz! Tragedy! Comedy! Confetti! Double entendres!
More wigs and sequins than you’d ever thought could be gathered into one place!


Join us for a fantabulous romp celebrating the multifaceted contributions that the LGBTQ+ community has made to world culture since the dawn of entertainment!

Co-produced by the composer-performer trio of Jennifer Wright, Nicholas Yandell, and Timothy Arliss O’Brien in partnership with Cascadia Composers, Fierce combines new music and drag in a glorious extravaganza for all to take pride in!

“Fierce” features a glittering group of local drag icons, classical musicians, and performance artists in a show bubbling over with fabulousness and fresh interpretations of Queer art forms. Exploring themes of gender and identity in a variety of styles, this rainbow-drenched explosion of expression honors the struggles of the local and global LGBTQ+ communities and celebrates them in style.

It’s super fun for straights too! Fans of art music, drag, dance, song, comedy, fashion, spectacle, pixelated 80s videos, witty storytelling, and audience participation will all find lots to love. LGBTQ+ listeners can enjoy a safe and joyful space to enjoy the arts and take pride in their cultural heritage. Suitable for audiences ages 13 and older.

What’s on the roster:

Special guest appearance by Eugene’s own Eugene Difficult Music Ensemble (EDME)!! They’re up for anything, but we all wanna know: *How* difficult will they find it to play music in fabulous dresses?! Let’s find out!!

Saint Syndrome

Saint Syndrome

Portland drag pianist/icon Saint Syndrome (a.k.a Marshall Cuffe) emcees, tickles the ivories, and impresses as “The Lowest Bass With the Smallest Waist”on several pieces, including the luscious, lounge-y “What Makes a Man a Man?”

Composer Daniel Vega (who has starred as Dr. Frank-n-Furter in the live Rocky Horror Picture Show at Portland’s historic Clinton Street Theater!) considers what might happen when a saxophone, live computer processing, and a whole load of banned queer books walk into a bar together.

Guest composer Lucas Marshall Smith from Ohio contributes “Always Meeting Ourselves”, which presents a deliciously ambiguous original text that can lean in any number of ways while performers consider their reflections in a multitude of mirrors.

Tartier Falouze playing piano

Tartie FaLouze (Jennifer Wright)

Happily recognizing that anyone can be a woman these days, Jennifer Wright (appearing as drag personality Tartie FaLouze) has a few choice words about constructs of femininity to share in her bluesy, no-holds-barred “Rant” (the title says it all, really). She has added a new number to the “Fierce” roster in light of recent anti-gay and anti-trans events: a cheeky little opening number called “Let’s Say Gay!”

Timothy Arliss O’Brien, appearing as drag personality Tabitha Acidz, tackles some heavy stuff head-on with solo piano and spoken (and sometimes shouted!) poetic word in “Elegy for the Left Hand”.

The tongue-in-cheek “A Musical Lecture” by Nicholas Alan Yandell (appearing as drag personality The Midnight Maestro) uses everything from a theramin to a keytar to demonstrate how music can help you find yourself! And as if that wasn’t enough, he also wrote a new song for this special Eugene Edition of “Fierce”: “Ode to a Flamer”!

The grand finale is Jennifer Wright’s hilarious memoir of her cringe-worthy youthful attempts to form a coherent understanding of gender and identity growing up in the 1980s whilst surrounded by a barrage of confusing and colorful pop culture influences, entitled “(Do Ya Like My) Unicorn Trapper Keeper (Extra-Extra Extended Dance Remix).”

There will be line dancing, multiple keytars, retro pixelated video and, of course, Trapper Keepers galore!

Yandell, O’Brien and Saint Syndrome present a draggy musical “lecture”

And more more more more more, but we won’t tell you EVERYTHING now –
you’ll just have to show up and be wowed!

Unicorn Trapper Keeper performance

(Do Ya Like My) Unicorn Trapper Keeper (Extra-Extra Extended Dance Remix)

“Fierce” is a night you won’t soon forget!

Tickets: $25 general admission; $10 students.

Anyone wearing a costume gets a FREE PRIDE FLAG!

Generously supported in part by a grant from the Regional Arts and Culture Council (RACC) and Cascadia Composers.

About the lead artists

Jennifer Wright has been described as “a real force of nature” (FearNoMusic artistic director Kenji Bunch) and “[One] of [Cascadia Composers’] most creative producer/composers” (Brett Campbell, Oregon Arts Watch). She is a performer, composer, educator, multidisciplinary artist, event producer, and culture-maker. She holds two degrees in piano performance (M.M., Trinity College of Music, London, England; B.M., Hartt School of Music, Connecticut) and studied for two years at the Music Conservatory in Stuttgart, Germany. She teaches piano at Reed College and in her private piano studio in Portland, Oregon.

Jennifer’s eclectic compositions include acoustic, electroacoustic, fixed media, and found-sound works for solo instruments, voice, mixed ensembles, choir, dance, experimental instruments, and film. Much of her work features alternative keyed instruments like typewriters, toy pianos, prepared piano, amplified harpsichords, and her various deconstructed “Post-Apocalyptic Instruments”, including “The Skeleton Piano”, “The Egg” and “Chimaera”.

Jennifer’s compositions have been performed across the U.S., England, Finland and Cuba and on KGW TV and Cuban National TV by herself, FearNoMusic, Resonance Ensemble, Delgani Quartet, The Venerable Showers of Beauty Gamelan Orchestra, Ensemble Interactivo de la Habana, CORVUS, and many more. &

Nicholas Yandell is a Portland, Oregon based composer, musician, writer, & visual artist. Musically, he specializes in composing contemporary classical concert works, film scores, post-rock, and electronic music. He has composed or collaborated on a number of scores for short films and film projects and has had works performed by the Delgani String Quartet, cellist Marilyn De Olivera, the Iridescence Piano Flute Duo, the Madrona Viola Duo, and pianist Dianne Davies, as well as numerous performances through Cascadia Composers. In 2019, he had the honor of being one of the four composers commissioned by 45th Parallel to set the poetry of Micah Fletcher to music and performed with the Pyxis Quartet and percussionist Sergio Carreno at their “I Spat in the Eye of Hate and Lived” concert. He holds a Masters of Music Composition and a Bachelor of Music from Five Towns College in Dix Hills, NY, and was named the 2020 Composer of the Year by the Oregon Music Teachers Association. In all his creative works, Nicholas delves deeply into subjects such as mental health, psychology, spirituality and perseverance, with an ultimately hopeful outlook, woven into strongly comprehensible narratives. As a queer person, he also uses creativity to express his struggles with identity and sexuality as well as his own personal journey to acceptance.


Married composers couple Nicholas Yandell and Timothy Arliss O’Brien

He has premiered music with The Astoria Music Festival, Cascadia Composers, Sound of Late’s 48 hour Composition Competition and ENAensemble’s Serial Opera Project. Timothy also wants to produce writing that connects the reader to themselves in a way that promotes wonder and self realization.
