[SWITCHED-ON BACH] Today's classical music performances often feel as archaic as the music itself. Even when the music is timeless, the way it's presented is frequently outdated and under-rehearsed. Enter the Amplified Repertory Chamber Orchestra of Portland, spearheaded by Classical Revolution PDX, Cascadia Composers and Portland Columbia Symphony stalwart violinist Mike Hsu. The group aims to learn from rock and pop music and bring classical performance into the 21st century, with performances in informal venues allowing dancing and drinking and where one mustn't worry about applauding at the "wrong" moment. Along with Portland Cello Project cellist Skip vonKuske and other musicians from Portland and Seattle, ARCO-PDX performs energetic music by C.P.E. Bach (Sebastian's innovative son), vonKuske and Hsu, the latter of which is influenced by ’80s dance music. It's classical music with a rock attitude.
