IN A LANDSCAPE: The Shire
July 21, 2018, 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm
Thanks to the University of Oregon and the John Yeon Center for Architecture and the Landscape, we are delighted to return to The Shire for another evening of music in nature.
The Shire performances in the 2018 season offer an exclusive opportunity to invest in the mission of IN A LANDSCAPE and to further our ability to bring a nine-foot Steinway piano and classical music to rural audiences across Oregon and Southern Washington. Over the last two IAL seasons, 34% of our audience had not attended an arts event in the previous 12 months, and nearly 30% had never attended a classical music event. We invite you to partner with us to increase our impact and further our reach by investing in a donation or regular ticket to a performance at The Shire. By doing so, you will play a critical role in enabling us to offer free or donation-only tickets to over 5000 residents in rural communities in the 2018 season.
Thank you for your generous support, partnership, and belief in our mission of connecting people with wild spaces throughout Oregon and Washington.
***Walking tour tickets are exclusively for the benefit of paid ticketholders.***
ABOUT THE SHIRE
The Shire is a private 75-acre waterfront site in the heart of the Columbia River Gorge, directly across from Multnomah Falls. It is a carefully designed landscape with a sculpted lawn, a series of meadows, wetlands, vista points, river bays, and walking paths, which John Yeon created over a 25 year period. He purchased the property in 1965 to protect it from possible industrial development, and donated the property to the University after Yeon’s death in 1994.
In addition, guests with paid tickets are invited to register for a FREE pre-concert walking tour of The Shire with John Yeon experts Randy Gragg and Nate Overmeyer. A separate ticket is required for this tour, available via the TICKETS button above.
