Mind-altering by design
They’re ALIVE!!! This is a season of fresh music by living artists creating wonderful works; it’s a gallery of creativity that will tantalize, provoke and enrich. Join us for our intimate Studio Series concerts exploring composers from as near as our own backyard to as far away as Estonia. And don’t miss our expanded Concert Series offerings—three concerts instead of two, due to popular demand—with Steve Reich’s Different Trains performed in front of trains at the Oregon Rail Heritage Museum, a mind-expanding mixture of electronica and live performance with sonic wizard Daniel Wohl, and a reprise of the Haas string quartet performed in complete darkness. It is a season to remember full of music you won’t soon forget.

When you login to purchase tickets for the first time, using the email you have used for previous Third Angle purchases, you will be prompted to setup a new account— and your information will automatically be transferred over from our old system. We anticipate that this system will work well for our subscribers, but with all new things there may be a few quirks and growing pains.
