The Schnitzer’s have given tirelessly providing free care for Oregonians dealing with diabetes. Sadly, Harold passed away on April 27th 2011, just 5 days before the event. Harold and Arlene heard this Cole Porter show in Eden Hall in Gleneden Beach the previous summer and loved the show so much, they wanted to create a joint benefit for the Schnitzer Diabetes Health Center and the Portland Chamber Orchestra (PCO). Arlene’s sister, June Nagel played with the PCO many times from its inception in 1947 and June’s son later became its concertmaster. It was an honor to be a part of this exquisite event.
