Fields park advances; land owner bites bullet Daily Journal of Commerce The Fields Neighborhood Park property is the third, and final, Pearl District property that Hoyt donated to the city. But the three properties are yielding …
Concerned citizens are organizing to ensure ongoing safety, health, and livability in the Pearl. There will be a general safety meeting, led by the Office of Neighborhood Involvement, for all residents of the Pearl District in January.
There will be two ways to participate: a neighborhood watch or a foot patrol. Training is provided for each option stressing best practices and how to stay safe.
The Neighborhood Watch Program brings people together, creating a shared vision of community safety. Neighborhood watch meetings typically occur annually and offer information about safely responding to an issue that concerns them and which agencies to contact.
A Foot Patrol is a group of volunteers who walk their neighborhood streets and parks to deter crime and report problems. According to the availability of participants, patrols might be scheduled once a week, every two weeks or monthly for a 45 minute to an hour walk.
Please join us to ensure a safe and beautiful 2015 in the Pearl.

Camerata PYP, the chamber orchestra of the Portland Youth Philharmonic, kicks off its sixth Music in the Pearl concert season at the Wieden+Kennedy building (224 NW 13th Ave., Portland, OR) on Sunday, January 25, 2015 at 4 pm, with David Hattner, PYP Musical Director, as conductor.
Camerata PYP marks its sixth season with music spanning nearly 300 years. The concert will open with Bach’s Brandenburg Concerto No. 6. The wind octet will be featured in a performance of Mozart’s Serenade No. 11 K.375 and later the strings section will shine in Georges Enescu’s Octet for Strings.
“I am happy to feature music of Enescu alongside Bach and Mozart," says David Hattner, PYP Musical Director. "They are each among the greatest musicians in history. Enescu's Octet is a major work by a 19 year old prodigy, who was also a virtuoso performer on the violin and piano. It is also a major challenge for our performers. The Bach features our wonderful viola duo of Maia Hoffman and Samuel Zacharia, who have both won solo competitions for PYP. The Mozart gives our wind players a chance to shine in one of the most important works ever written for wind instruments.”
Camerata PYP’s concerts feature a broad, adventurous range of programming in an intimate, engaging environment. Powerful programs take on a personal dimension in the cozy Wieden+Kennedy atrium, as audience members surround the musicians at such close range that they feel part of the ensemble.
To purchase tickets, call the PYP office at 503.223.5939, Monday through Friday from 9 am to 5 pm or visit www.portlandyouthphil.org.
