▶️ The Great Outdoors: Choral Concert in a Cave

Many artists are inspired by natural beauty, thus the popularity of landscape painting and landscape photography. In this week’s Great Outdoors, Brooke Snavely and Wanderlust Tours show us an entirely different kind of art in nature — a choral concert in a cave.

A special thanks to our Great Outdoors sponsor, Parr Lumber, for giving us the time and resources to explore the lakes, rivers and mountains across our beautiful state every Wednesday night on Central Oregon Daily.

He’s just the third artist to play multi-day shows at the Old Mill venue, joining Phish and Widespread Panic.

Bryan was only playing multiple nights at two stops on the tour, including Bend. The tour also includes shows at Madison Square Garden in New York City and Staples Center in Los Angeles.

In October, Bryan’s 2013 “Crash My Party” album was named Album of the Decade by the Academy of Country Music.

Destination Oregon: Music Millennium

If I ask you what your very first LP was, or what your favorite 45 was, you are definitely of a particular age group. For those younger viewers, those are records, albums or singles, you know, old school vinyl. In this week’s Destination Oregon, Dave Jones takes us to an iconic record store in Portland that has been selling albums, 45’s, CD’s and cassettes for nearly a half-century.

Thanks to Terry Currier for showing us around Music Millennium and a special thanks to our Destination Oregon sponsor, Bi-Mart, for giving us the time and resources to take you to some of our state’s most beautiful and interesting locations every Thursday night on Central Oregon Daily.
