About Portland Opera To Go


Portland Opera To Go


Each year Portland Opera To Go takes an opera on the road, sharing the power of opera, music, and theater with schools and communities throughout Oregon and SW Washington. It’s not necessarily the easiest thing in the world, as you might imagine. But it’s one of the most rewarding . . . for us and for the thousands upon thousands of students who get to experience live opera, many for the first time.

And this blog will give you a first-hand view from the performers themselves of what it’s like when Opera hits the road!


Here’s a link to more information on the tour and the program.

Best treats in State FOUND!

During our travels we get to sample some of the local restaurants and coffee shops and what have you. This last Friday I think we found the best smoothie and Java shake cafe in the state. It's called Oregon Sunshine Espresso and they specialize in blended drinks using Umpqua Valley milk products. They also have a nice selection of wines and very helpful staff.

So, if you're ever in Canyonville, Oregon, maybe visiting 7 Feathers casino or just driving through to Grants Pass and need to make a stop, Oregon Sunshine is located on Main Street, North of downtown and South of the casino. The address is 340 N Main street. Check it out!
