Join the Friends of Portara in sponsoring a String Player

Portara Ensemble has quickly become a creative force in the music scene of Middle Tennessee.  Their innovative programming and artist collaborations have crossed the boundaries of visual and performing arts, and brought exciting new music to their audiences.

We invite you to become a part of our efforts by joining the Friends of Portara and sponsoring a string player for the featured piece on our Winter 2016 concert, Ola Gjeilo’s Dark Night of the Soul.

Dark Night of the Soul is an evocative work, cinematic in scope, with text excerpted from from St. John of the Cross’ (1542-1592) magical poem of the same name.

Your tax deductible donation will help Portara Ensemble to continue delivering world-class performances to the audiences of Middle Tennessee.
