Photos and Story by James Hill
These days, the pastures and forests are alive with the sound of music at the Rock Creek Campus.
The music program based at the campus, once nearly non-existent, is growing by leaps and bounds. Instrumental in that growth is Music Instructor Jason Palmer. A drummer by trade, he serves as department chair for the Performing Arts Department. Him and fellow performing arts faculty like Pollyanna Hancock-Moody have been organizing musical nights and clinics showcasing a wide range of musical types at Rock Creek that feature Portland artists and student ensembles and choral groups. Outside of college life, Palmer performs with the Joe Manis Trio, which has played at the campus for community events.
