Tobey, features stained glass windows by Portland’s Povey Brothers Glass Co, and is on the National Register of Historic Places. $20 suggested donation, plus desserts/drinks will be available for purchase at the after-concert reception. All donations support preservation costs of this iconic building.
About Ryan Walsh
Upon graduating from the University of Oregon, I decided to follow the call of my passion, the classical guitar. I bought a plane ticket to Spain, birthplace of the instrument and home to a rich and ancient musical tradition. After several years studying alongside some of the world’s finest and honing my performance skills, I began to hear a different call—that of my own roots, the Pacific Northwest—and I knew it was time to continue my travels. Although I have now returned home from Spain, my journey with the classical guitar is only beginning. I am excited to share the beautiful, mysterious, and intensely intimate music I discovered during my years abroad with those here on my native soil.
