countdown to carnegie

Tonight’s the night – the night we try to push over the top and reach our fundraising goal for the Oregon Symphony’s trip to Carnegie Hall in May 2011.

The concert will feature Carlos Kalmar and the Oregon Symphony, with guests Thomas Lauderdale, OSO concertmaster Jun Iwasaki, Storm Large, Darcelle XV, and more!

We’ve got enough money raised so far to get the orchestra to NYC, but not enough to get us back.  That would doubtless make many of you (and us) sad, so help bring us back from Carnegie by purchasing tickets to tonight’s concert!
