Melegari performs for Oregon Governor John Kitzhaber’s 3rd Inauguration

January 28th, 2011

On January 10, 2011, the Melegari Chamber Players String Quartet had the honor of being performing for Oregon Governor John Kitzhaber’s 3rd Inauguration!  The event was held in the House Chambers of the State Capitol in Salem.  The quartet played as members of the House, Senate, former Governors, and finally, Governor Kitzhaber himself processed.  Also performing was the Youth Choir of Central Oregon, who sang beautifully.

We would like to extend a warm “thank you” to the whole Kitzhaber team, especially Barbara Allen, and Linda Magee at Chamber Music Northwest for thinking of us for this amazing event.  We were beyond excited to be there and witness history.  And we love that Governor Kitz wore jeans!

Look closely at the picture below to see the Governor being sworn in.
