Cascadia Composers is not about to let summertime slide into fall without a real, bonafide encore presentation of our beloved summer tradition:


In Good Hands
Saturdays September 11th, September 18th, and September 25th on our YouTube channel at 3PM.


Please note: dates and times in program are inaccurate.


Join us in celebrating talented student performers from across Oregon and Washington playing brand new music written by Cascadia Composer members in this special outreach project of Cascadia and the next generation of musicians!

The numbers show that this is our biggest In Good Hands concert yet with 17 teachers, 53 students ages 7 to 22, and 19 composers participating!

Many of the compositions will be premieres which were written specifically for the student performers, creating an extra special artistic connection.

The programs will include works for cello, flute, oboe, violin, voice and piano.
