Half of the money raised will be used specifically to pay local creative musicians, dancers and other performance acts through the 2012-2013 season!
The Creative Music Guild is a Portland, Oregon all-volunteer, non-profit organization whose mission is to promote experimental, improvised music by presenting concerts, workshops and other events that bring together internationally recognized musicians with local performers, audiences and music students of all ages. For over twenty years, the CMG has been a leader in cultivating Portland’s experimental and improvised music.
There are currently four major components of the organization: The Outset Series, The Improvisation Summit of Portland, The Visiting Artist Series and The Benefit Show.
The organization is run by the board of directors as well as committee members made up of local performers, educators and music lovers. We also benefit from the excellent work of a group of committed volunteers and the advice of our advisory board.
