INTO THE ARCTIC KINGDOM Florian Schulz Photographer His multi-year quest to document the Arctic took photographer Florian Schulz to the ends of the Earth. He camped for weeks in jarring winter conditions, accompanied traditional Inuit hunters and sailed the arctic waters, all to get an intimate look at life in the Arctic. There, he tracked families of polar bears, followed the vast caribou herds, and captured the Northern Lights in stunning detail. Through breathtaking imagery, Schulz takes audiences on a legendary journey into the Arctic kingdom—with a special focus on the Arctic Refuge, one of the world’s last great wilderness.

Silkroad Ensemble Monday, February 4 7:30pm
The Silkroad Ensemble creates music that engages difference, sparking radical cultural collaboration and passion-driven learning to build a more hopeful world. Founded by cellist Yo-Yo Ma, the group has been called “vibrant and virtuosic” by the Wall Street Journal, “one of the 21st century’s great ensembles” by the Vancouver Sun, and a “roving musical laboratory without walls” by the Boston Globe. Silkroad musicians and composers hail from more than 20 countries, drawing on a rich tapestry of traditions to create a new musical language — a uniquely engaging and accessible encounter between the foreign and the familiar that reflects our manylayered contemporary identities. As the Los Angeles Times has said, Silkroad’s “vision of international cooperation is not what we read in our daily news reports. Theirs is the better world available if we, like these extraordinary musicians, agree to make it one.”

Who I Am: Celebrating Me Who I Am: Celebrating Me is a community of youth and adult artists exploring history through the arts. From soul-encompassing singing and dancing to heartfelt poetry and prose, the production takes you on a cultural journey highlighting a montage of African-American figures and movements.
Sunday, February 10 3:00pm
Formed in 2007 by Shalanda Sims in response to the lack of celebratory events in Portland during Black History month, Who I Am: Celebrating Me dared to fill a void. In an effort to educate youth, show them something they could be proud of, and celebrate all year long, educators, business owners, youth, adults, senior citizens, artists, community members gathered to sing songs, recite poetry, and share oral history. Who I Am: Celebrating Me has helped educate thousands of audience members about the rich history and contributions of African-Americans.

Six-time Grammy winners, The Chieftains are now recognized for bringing traditional Irish music to the world’s attention. They have uncovered the wealth of traditional Irish music that has accumulated over the centuries, making the music their own with a style that is as exhilarating as it is definitive.
Wednesday, February 20 7:30pm
The Chieftains are never afraid to shock purists and push genre boundaries. The trappings of fame have not altered The Chieftains’ love of, and loyalty to, their roots however—they are as comfortable playing spontaneous Irish sessions as they are headlining a concert at Carnegie Hall. After 50 years of making some of the most beautiful music in the world, The Chieftains’ music remains as fresh and relevant as when they first began.

Mariachi Sol de Mexico de Jose Hernandez Part of the romance of Mariachi songs is they convey “all things are possible.” The humor, the spirit, and even the bittersweet, inspire us to a world where we live out our dreams.
Sunday, March 10 6:00pm
Unprecedented, unrivaled and uninhibited, the impact of Jose Hernandez and his Sol de Mexico® on mariachi and all music is undeniable. After forming Mariachi Sol de Mexico® in 1981, Jose’s charismatic arrangements and signature trumpet playing made the group an instant and lasting success: Sol de Mexico has played to sold out halls from New York’s Lincoln Center to Viña del Mar in Santiago, Chile. They were the first Mariachi group to play concerts in Beijing, China and Pyongyang, North Korea. Sol de Mexico also played for four U.S. presidents including performances at the White House! But more than awards and credits, it is the passion and love of the mariachi tradition that courses through Jose’s veins into audiences’ hearts.

“Gullah” comes from West African language and means “a people blessed by God.” “Ranky Tanky” translates loosely as “Work It,” or “Get Funky!” In this spirit this Charleston, SC based quintet performs timeless music of Gullah culture born in the southeastern Sea Island region of the United States. From playful game songs to ecstatic shouts, from heartbreaking spirituals to delicate lullabies, the musical roots of Charleston.
Monday, April 1 7:30pm
The soulful songs of the Gullah culture are brought to life by this band of native South Carolinians who mix low country traditions with large doses of jazz, gospel, funk, and rhythm and blues. Quentin Baxter, Kevin Hamilton, Charlton Singleton and Clay Ross came together in 1998 to form a Charleston jazz quartet. They have reunited, adding celebrated low country vocalist Quiana Parler to revive a “Heartland of American Music” born in their own backyards.

Tuesday, May 7
Percy Jackson, a teenager with attention-deficit-hyperactivity-disorder and dyslexia, has been kicked out schools his entire life for reasons uncontrolled by him. After a series of unexplainable and mythical events, Percy finally discovers he is a son of Poseidon, a demigod, and accused of stealing Zeus’s lightning bolt. His best friend Grover, a satyr, and new friend Annabeth, daughter of Athena, must embark on a quest to find and return Zeus’s stolen lightning bolt before a war erupts between the gods.

The Lightning Thief: The Percy Jackson Musical is based on the New York Times best selling book series by Rick Riordan.

MUSIC ON MAIN
Celebrate summer at the 14th Annual Music on Main. This free outdoor concert series features popular local and national bands. Kick back and relax in the sun with dinner and drinks from the ArtBar & Bistro, or grab a partner and hit the dance floor. Either way you choose, Music on Main promises to be a great way to spend a breezy summer night in downtown Portland! Wednesdays, 5:30pm, July 10-August 28.
Taking the stage at this year’s Music on Main is Austin singer-songwriter Gina Chavez. Gina first found her voice as a Latin folk chanteuse during a year abroad in Buenos Aires, Argentina. Her warm, bold, rich voice transports with songs of longing, faith, beauty, and sacrifice. With an intermingling of English and Spanish, Chavez’s music offers a distinct
weave of cumbia, bossa nova, vintage pop, indie folk, and reggaeton. Described by NPR as possessing a voice that will ‘stop you in your tracks,’ 10-time Austin Music Award winner Chavez made the station’s Tiny Desk Concert of 2015 and was hailed by the Austin Monthly as ‘a breath of fresh air.’ Her music is sure to enchant, delight, and get folks kicking up their heels!
SUMMER ARTS ON MAIN Wednesdays, July 10–August 28 11:00am–1:00pm Since 2004, this event has evolved into a rite of summer for Portlanders, offering free music, exciting performances, and children’s activities along Main Street between the Arlene Schnitzer Concert Hall and Antoinette Hatfield Hall.

STUDENT DEMOGRAPHICS (OBSERVED)
Lack of arts education opportunities disproportionately affects students and families from communities of color and low-income households. Many attend schools that do not provide comprehensive arts programming, if any at all. Additional barriers to the arts include limited access to transportation, lack of expendable time, lack of disposable income, little or no exposure to the arts, and a misperception that the arts are exclusive. There is no charge to any school, student, or family to attend an Education Program event.
Looking to support access to the arts with a taxable donation? Portland’5 Foundation is here for you.
