Radio allows for participation at least 6 feet apart during coronavirus crisis

COURTESY PHOTO - Quartet members include baritone Jerry Herrmann (from left), lead singer Tim Miller, bass Jerry Miller and tenor Ken Cox.Regional nonprofit organization Rivers of Life Center's performing arts quartet usually celebrates Oregon history, culture and settlement through music performed at numerous events statewide. In light of the coronavirus situation, their efforts are conducted with participants maintaining at least 6 feet between each another.

Performances and programs by the quartet are shared by radio only at this time. Their recent performance March 28 at Oregon's 93.9 KPDQ radio station was broadcast throughout the world.

Quartet member Tim Miller of Clackamas was surprised that radio listeners called in from Missouri, Utah and other points to discuss their presentation of Oregon history through the songs they performed.

"Our sharing of the journeys of Lewis and Clark, the Oregon Trail migrations and the roles of our First Nations — Native Americans — were well received," said bass Jerry Miller of Canby.
