At the end of this week, our 2012 Proteges arrive in Portland to begin rehearsing for the first of their three concerts:
- Wed June 27 - Doug Fir Lounge - Amphion String Quartet playing Bartok, Berg and Brahms.
- Wed July 11 - Someday Lounge - Amphion Quartet plus Gloria Chien, festival artists David Shifrin and Julie Feves performing music by our first-ever Protege composer, Katerina Kramarchuk. The composer herself will also perform on piano.

We're excited to announce that we're partnering with Young Professionals of Portland to host YPOP @ CMNW on 7/11 at the Someday Lounge. We look forward to sharing the excitement of our Club Concerts with YPOP members for the first time this year!
We're also pleased to share that our Proteges will be performing on Intel's Jones Farm Campus for company employees on Friday, June 29th. This is a component of our partnership with Intel's Great Place to Work program, and we look forward to welcoming Intel to our festival concerts.
In addition to the Club Concerts, our 2012 Proteges will join Festival artists for main stage concerts and will perform around town in free public outreach concerts and private events, including at the Museum of Contemporary Craft, and a joint show at PSU's Lincoln Hall with the renowned local modern dance company, BodyVox.
