Portland Revels is pleased to welcome Eric Stern as guest artist for the 2013 Christmas Revels show, “Christmas in Old Europe.” Stern is the Northwest’s own premiere operatic tenor, accordionist, pianist, Trained in the United States and Europe, he has performed internationally, garnering critical acclaim for his voice, musicianship and his stunningly imaginative songwriting.
In this special pre-Christmas Revels concert, Mr. Stern will provide a wonderful introduction to the hauntingly beautiful music of Eastern Europe, in an intimate setting at the elegant University Club of Portland.
With vocal and accordion music (and a couple of special guests) Stern will introduce his audience to some of his favorite music from Eastern Europe, with emphasis on his own expertise
Here’s a word from Eric himself:
Hello, this is Eric! I’ve been thinking lately of my grandmother Rosetta Stern.

(On FRIDAY) I will be providing the Rosetta Stone for some of my favorite Balkan Music at the University Club of Portland and I wanted to invite you! Have you always wondered about those balkan ornaments? The odd meters? Or have you just enjoyed Roma (gypsy), music, Bulgarian and Klezmer as I have, and want a little more insight into their secrets, the scales, the cultural context, and the history? Sound boring? OH NOOOOO, it’s not as I and my good friend Paul Evans, as well as bassist Peter Whitlist will be playing our ASSES off (sorry grandma), heating up the room, and just think you’ll be learning at the same time. It will be like a Richard Feynman lecture with incredible music. It’s all being produced by the Portland Revels …
