portland social distance ensemble – micah fletcher and the pyxis quartet – tonight at 6pm (Pacific)

Tonight at 6PM the Pyxis Quartet will be playing music of Kenji Bunch and Bonnie Miksch inspired by the poetry of Micah Fletcher. Micah will be on hand to read four of his poems with us. This is a portion of a concert that we did last year, and it was a very impactful one for us and our audience. I hope you can make it:

Here’s the archived version of the live stream from last night of the Pyxis Quartet. There were some glitches, but we’re getting better at using the tech, and our developer is honing in on what is going to make this work the best for us.

Just a note to all of you who have expressed an interest in this technology. It’s still at the very beginning stages of development – I’d say pre-alpha testing, and is only usable for a limited number of computers with wired high speed connections at this point. It’s got a ways to go before it can go out into the world, and rest assured, when it’s ready, you’ll know about it! Thanks for your patience!
