An Open Stage evening the 2nd Tuesday of each month brings a very eclectic group of local artists to the Corvallis Arts Center for an evening of varied music, from Johann Sebastian Bach to Gordon Bok, with many original songs by the performers. Signups begin at 6:30 (anyone can perform) and the actual performances start at 7:00pm. The Arts Center acoustics are very good, so the music is generally totally acoustic (a microphone may be available for those who request it), and the venue provides a grand piano, or you can bring your own instruments if you’d like. Admission is free, donations accepted to help pay for the venue.
