More Bloch Anniversary Celebrations from Oregon

More much-needed coverage of the Bloch anniversary from Oregon Public Broadcasting. It’s good to see Bloch’s adopted home stepping up to the plate.

Not so at many other music festivals. I’m tempted to name and shame, but I want to continue to work. Google some festivals and see who has noticed the occasion. Not enough, including some festivals big enough to cover all these sorts of anniversaries.

Meanwhile, there’s a radio spot from Morning Edition here, and an Oregon Art Beat telecast performance of From Jewish Life from Chamber Music Northwest, featuring cellist Ronald Thomas & pianist Shai Wosner.

Bravo OPB, and bravo Bloch!
