[CLASSICAL MEETS CONTEMPORARY SONGS] Portland composer Christopher Corbell is an indie singer-songwriter who can shred on electric guitar, and also writes vocal chamber music in the classical tradition. Since taking over as head honcho at Classical Revolution PDX, he’s nudged the organization to go beyond Bach in the bar and also embrace original music by local composers. Now he’s setting an example by funding, via Kickstarter, a concert of his own settings of poetry from sources as diverse as Rilke, the Dhammapada, original boho Edna St. Vincent Millay, Catullus, Baudelaire and more. Featuring some of the city’s top professional singers—like sopranos Catherine Olson and Hannah Penn and other regulars with Portland Opera, Opera Theater Oregon, Resonance Ensemble and Northwest Music, plus piano, strings and guitars—Cult of Orpheus embodies CRPDX’s evolving vision, a fertile mix of classical and contemporary influences.
