Portland Conservatory of Music Open House

Sep 11, 2016 @ 2:00pm   Events, Member Events


Ever wonder where that wonderful music drifting over the neighborhood in Woodford’s Corner is coming from?  It’s floating down from the Portland Conservatory of Music, which occupies the third floor of Woodfords Congregational Church, in what used to be the Church’s Sunday School rooms.

Having recently undergone a partial renovation, the Conservatory is opening its doors to the public on Sunday, September 11, from 2-4 pm for its annual Open House.  You don’t want to miss this opportunity to check out PCM’s studios, meet with faculty, and tryout various instruments at their instrument petting zoo.  The event will also include live musical performances, a balloon twister, and refreshments.

Those interested in jazz instruction can meet with Jazz Studies Director, Titus Abbott, who will surely have one of the studios hopping with jazz tunes.  Popular violin instructor, DeeDee Oehrtmann will be on hand to expound on the merits of the Suzuki method of training and perhaps even share some of her experiences as a violinist for the Portland Symphony Orchestra.  Vocal coach and Karger College Prep Director, Scott Wheatley will be there to help people of all ages find their voice and chat about the Karger program.  The school employs over 40 talented faculty and many of them will also be there.

Heading off the performances will be students of esteemed harp teacher Jara Goodrich in the Sanctuary at 2:00.  Additional performances by both students and faculty are also expected.

The Open House will end at 4:00 with auditions for the school’s various programs: Karger College Prep, Extended Lesson Scholarships, and placement auditions for its new Young Women’s Vocal Ensemble.

The Conservatory is a nonprofit community music school dedicated to providing the highest quality music education to people of all ages, abilities, and financial levels.  For more info call 775-3356 or visit their website at
