This free summer concert is a full-length extravaganza in Washington Park’s amphitheater. We’ve been working hard to bring back some old favorites we haven’t played in a while, as well as on a collaboration with Portland Lee’s Association lion dance team. And of course we’ll also be playing some of our standard pieces our audiences know and love. Hope to see you there!
