chamber music performance



 La Grande, Oregon…The second of four concerts in the 2015-2016 Chamber Concert Series will have performers from several compass points:  Texas to the south, Corvallis to the west, and right here in La Grande.  We are pleased that the Wes Rampton Family and Friends will perform a choral chamber concert Saturday, January 23, 2016, 7:30 pm at Trey and Julie Pettit’s home, 705 South 18th Street, La Grande.

The performers are led by Wes Rampton who has performed in many area productions and ensembles in the Grande Ronde Valley.  Joining Wes is Joseph Battrick, who has performed in many productions and ensembles in the Willamette Valley.  Other family members include Jeanette Rampton Smith, Emily Rampton Pomeroy, Brent Smith, and Molly Ford Baum.  Friends include Peter Wordelman and Mio Aioke.

Please consider joining us for a delightful evening of music.  Refreshments will be provided following the performance, a great way to cap a wonderful evening of music.  The Chamber Series Pass gets you in or, if you did not purchase a season pass last fall, you can pay $25 per person at the door.

Because of minimal parking space, mud, snow, and incline attendees will be shuttled to the Pettit home.  Please park your cars at the east parking lot of the LDS Church on Gekeler Avenue to catch a private shuttle ride.  Look for a driver holding a “Shuttle” sign and hop in for the ride.  The shuttle will begin running at 6:30 pm with the last run at 7:15 pm.  And yes, the shuttle will carry all attendees back to their cars following the concert!

For further information please contact Patty Sandoz at 541-963-7595 or at psandoz@eou.edu.
