During this surreal time of social isolation, 45th Parallel Universe has created a new way for musicians to come together to safely do what they do best. Danny Rosenberg designed Portland Social Distance Ensemble, an innovative live digital platform that allows musicians to get together from anywhere in the world, presenting exciting possibilities for connections and collaborations in the weeks to come. You can tune in Friday evenings 6-6:30 PM PDT.

Their next program is on Friday, May 15, 6-6:30 PM. The program features music string quartets by Glass, Crumb, and a rousing bit of Scandinavian folk music, performed by musicians playing live from their homes.
