Majestic Chamber Music, Flamenco Pacifico: Corvallis theatre fills weekend with music

Flamenco Pacifico Quintet

Flamenco Pacifico performs Thursday night at the Lebanon Public Library and Saturday at the Majestic Theatre in Corvallis. 

In addition to its usual excellent entertainment menu, the Majestic Theatre packs two consecutive evenings this week with a diverse pair of musical presentations perfect for all audiences.

Love classical? The Majestic's got you covered Friday, Jan. 24, with Majestic Chamber Music's "A Grand Return!" The 7:30 p.m. program, executed by "musicians far and near" (that would be cellist Jason Duckles and violinists Anthea Kreston and Gabriel Bolkosky, among others) explores masterworks in the Starker Auditorium. Audiences will be treated to timeless fare from Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart to Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky, with an array of composers in between.

Tickets are $20 general, $10 seniors, and $5 for students from kindergarten through the 12th grade. For more information, visit

The Pacific Northwest's beloved Flamenco Pacifico, led by guitarist Berto Boyd, takes the stage at 7:30 p.m. Friday, Jan. 25, bringing with it, as always, an electrifying and edifying evening of music and dance.

In an interview with The E last year, Boyd revealed, "Flamenco is the blues of Southern Spain. It's the music people use to relieve their suffering." And to hear it is to cross a fascinating musical landscape that has found inspiration in other cultures but has its own deep, rich history from which to enchant. For pertinent examples, we direct you to the ensemble's 2017 album, "Convivencia," nominated that year for "Best World/Global Fusion Album" by One World Music Awards.

Flamenco Pacifico will be joined onstage by dancers Elena Villa and Melissa Cruz. Other members of the ensemble include percussionist Terry Longshore, veteran fretless jazz bassist Randy Tico and guitarist/vocalist Grant Ruiz.

Tickets are $30 general, $28 for seniors and students. For more information, visit To learn more about Flamenco Pacifico, go to
