    I have played piano since I was 5 and have a great appreciation for the instrument and other pianists. I would love to have the chance to go! Thanks!

  2. Amy Brennan March 26, 2012 at 12:29 pm #

    I wish I had paid attention when my mom tried to teach me how to play the piano. I’d love to be able to play some of this wonderful music!

  3. Alanna March 26, 2012 at 12:41 pm #

    I haven’t been to a concert in years. I would kill for an opportunity to attend!

  4. Jose March 26, 2012 at 12:53 pm #

    Culture. You can never have enough.

  5. wallace March 26, 2012 at 12:53 pm #

    I’ll be honest, at the moment this is not the type of concert I would pay for, but I would certainly go if i win tickets and who knows – this may turn me into a paying customer the next time.

  6. Steve March 26, 2012 at 12:54 pm #

    I love the symphony!

  7. Miranda T. March 26, 2012 at 1:34 pm #

    I would like to attend this lovely outing because I am secretly one classy little bitch.

  8. mechelle March 26, 2012 at 1:36 pm #

    My husband has been listening to classical orchestra ( specifically mozart ) to help while he’s studying for school. I know he and I would both enjoy this concert and a night out
    : )

  9. Nick March 26, 2012 at 2:07 pm #

    I haven’t had the opportunity to attend the Oregon Symphony yet and would love to be able to see this. It sounds incredible.

  10. Sean March 26, 2012 at 5:11 pm #

    My girlfriend has been a pianist for 27 years and she is leaving Portland soon for residency in Wisconsin. Maybe this will convince her to stay. Please.

  11. Danny March 26, 2012 at 9:52 pm #

    This would be a great date!

  12. Dan Wheeler March 27, 2012 at 2:18 pm #

    This would be a very welcome classy outing for me. Help me expand my horizons!

  13. Aimee March 27, 2012 at 4:56 pm #

    My nephew is learning how to play and this would surely inspire him more than any T.V. program or internet video could. This little boy has dreams and they start with the simple things like seeing a live performance. I would be and I know he would certainly be forever grateful.

  14. Frank Byers March 27, 2012 at 7:35 pm #

    I saw Ian Anderson of Jethro Tull with the Oregon Symphony.

  15. Megan March 28, 2012 at 10:15 am #

    I truly enjoy Mozart. His music speaks in so.many ways. I have lived my whole life in Portland area and yet have never experienced the symphony. That is something I want to experience it as soon as I can. If I would go I would be enjoying the music in its beauty and have one night where I could feel all the music.

  16. Leonard March 28, 2012 at 8:09 pm #

    Early Mozart concerto, one I haven’t heard live…

  17. Robert March 28, 2012 at 10:39 pm #

    Mr. Ohlsson has a light, yet forceful way of dealing with a Mozart concerto. I would enjoy seeing him again. However, I think that sparking an interest in Aimee’s nephew (see above), would be a better use of the tickets.

  18. Melissa March 29, 2012 at 9:41 am #

    Haven’t seen the Oregon Symphony yet and I love Mozart!

  19. Margaret March 29, 2012 at 11:19 am #

    Ahhh, Mozart….21 piano sonatas, 27 piano concertos, 41 symphonies, 18 masses, 13 operas, 9 oratorios and cantata, 2 ballets, 40 plus concertos for various instruments, string quartets, trios and quintets, violin and piano duets piano quartets, and the songs. This astounding output includes hardly one work less than a masterpiece!!!!! Would love to hear Ohlsson’s delightful rendition of Mozart’s Piano Concerto No. 9, “Jeunehomme.”

  20. Stefanie March 29, 2012 at 2:43 pm #

    I’ve recently returned to piano lessons (after a 10 year hiatus), and I’d love to take my teacher to this!

  21. Nicolas Compton-Griffith March 29, 2012 at 3:39 pm #

    My girlfriend of 8 months turns 26 on April 2…After having to work New Year’s Eve and being out of town for Valentine’s, we haven’t had a chance to plan something during an important calendar event during our relationship…I want to make sure her 26th birthday becomes one of the most special nights she experiences…I have been trying to find an event we could attend for this night, and what a great surprise gift it would be to give her a night with Ohlsson, Mozart, and the Oregon Symphony – and will certainly get me out of the doghouse, at least temporarily :) We’ll be starting the night off at 5pm with tapas at Toro Bravo (shhh! don’t tell her), leaving us ample time to head to Arlene Schnitzer for the 8pm concert…hoping to win tickets to a memorable night for the two of us!

    This sounds like the perfect evening out with my husband to celebrate 3 years together! We just moved to Portland a few months ago and still need to explore more of all this wonderful city has to offer!!

  29. Toby March 29, 2012 at 6:39 pm #

    Since moving here we have not been to the Schnitz…which is directly across the street. BONUS!

  30. Erik H March 29, 2012 at 6:55 pm #

  32. Stacy Carmen March 29, 2012 at 7:16 pm #

    Please pick me! My 10 year old is just starting to take piano lessons. This would be a great inspiration for him. Thank you!

    This sounds great. I would love a chance to attend Sun-Tue.

  38. Tomas March 30, 2012 at 8:16 am #

    Love to take my special girl to this. We haven’t had date night for ages!

  39. Josie March 30, 2012 at 8:40 am #

    I used to play violin in high school. I was the only punk rock girl in orchestra, with my ripped hose & combat boots, I was 2nd chair. The only reason I had to stop was because my mother sold my violin for drugs.
    I don’t earn enough money to see live music & I would really love to go to this, Mozart being my favorite. Thanks!

  40. Heather March 30, 2012 at 10:42 am #

    The twinkle of Mozart…the perfect antidote to the rainy blues.

  41. Chris March 30, 2012 at 11:14 am #

    Haven’t been to the Schnitz in forever and I love classical music! Would make for a perfect date night.

  42. Sarah Smith March 30, 2012 at 11:21 am #

    I need a grown-up night out!

  43. Minda March 30, 2012 at 11:36 am #

    Oh! What a lovely way to spend a Monday evening!

  44. Carma March 30, 2012 at 12:45 pm #

    Ok..if you saw me RIGHT NOW…you’d had over the tickets…needin’ some culture like a kid needs candy…your contribution will be appreciated by all:)

  45. Sherry March 30, 2012 at 2:56 pm #

    In a New York Times interview in January of this year Mr. Ohlsson said: “I drive myself crazy, but it’s fun.” Please let me go see this man I have so much in common with :-)

  46. panda March 31, 2012 at 11:59 pm #

    can’t go wrong with mozart!

  47. Kathy March 5, 2013 at 8:27 pm #

    To hear Mozart we could go
    Dressed up and no kid in tow
    If only the Pipeline could know
    How desperate we are to go……
