How to Book Season Tickets

We are offering something new for Reserved and Patron seating! Starting this season, you can select your seats for Reserved and Patron seating at the time of purchase. Your current seat(s) are guaranteed until June 15, 2021. This is a pre-sale time for current subscribers to renew the same seats or request change. After that date, seats that have not been renewed will open to the public, so please renew as soon as you can. This can be done booking online or calling my office 503-631-7477.

How will subscriptions work in 2021/22 with presenting in person vs. presenting virtually?

We booked two events in the fall VIRTUALLY. The remaining 3 events will be LIVE beginning with Lisa See in February, 2022.

All subscriptions offer Live streaming (NEW) or Recordings following the program as we have done with our current Zoom Events. You can choose to attend in-person (if public health guidelines allow us to present in-person) OR you can watch the event from your home. Live streaming will be set up as Zoom meetings with links and passwords. Pricing will remain the same as last season. All sales are final.
