Portland Arts: Big in Europe
We may take them for granted, but some of Portland’s best artists and ensembles are beloved around the world.
These five ensembles and artists—Imago, BodyVox, Cappella Romana, Wonderheads, and Dan Attoe—have performed for everyone from Broadway audiences to the British Royal Family, winning accolades and awards along the way. We've gathered videos of their work:
