Amanda Stark: Coffeeshop Conversations #155 The Old Church Concert Hall reborn

By TOM D'ANTONI // Amanda Stark, Executive Director of The Old Church Concert Hall talks about the process of restoration and new directions.

Welcome back to the newly redone World Cup Coffee and Tea at NW 18th & Glisan in Portland. You have stumbled across another OMN Coffeeshop Conversation.

Today in the cupping room with me is Amanda Stark, Executive Director of The Old Church which is now known as The Old Church Concert Hall, something she’s been working on since 2010 and is no longer a work-in-progress….although everything in life really is…but it’s about to be re-launched as one of Portland’s finest venues.

Not that it hasn’t been all this time, but the improvements and restoration during Amanda’s time there, including a fabulous sound system, have made TOC (as they like to call it) a beautiful unique place to hear music.

What’s been done? How did it get done? What’s coming up?

Let’s find out.
