Acclaimed musicians perform to help man shot on I-205

Friends will perform for Brian Tierney, a stay-at-home dad and professional singer who was shot while driving home from choir practice the night of March 28. The event, featuring acclaimed singers, is called “A Song for Brian” and will be held at 7:30 p.m., Sunday, April 22, at All Saints Parish, 3847 NE Glisan St., in Portland.

Funds raised at the concert will help Tierney’s family pay for medical expenses. Tierney was in critical condition after he was found in his car on the side of I-205 suffering from gunshot wounds by an unknown assailant. Family members say Tierney is expected to make a full recovery, but the Portland Police Department is still investigating who shot the man and why. On April 7, Tierney was upgraded to stable condition after he had been in critical condition since the night of the shooting.

Tierney, 29, sings with the Portland Opera Chorus, as well as many professional choral groups like Cantores in Ecclesia, Cappella Romana and Resonance Ensemble. He is also an assistant choral director and tenor section leader at St. Michael and All Angels Episcopal Church in Northeast Portland.

"Brian is a kind, funny and extremely talented man, a loving husband and father, and a vital member of the Portland music community,” said Stephanie Kramer, one of the concert coordinators and a friend. “His musical family is grateful to be able to help out in the best way we know how  — by coming together in a musical performance.”

Friends and family were shocked when they heard about the shooting.

"Brian is a great friend and colleague. Not only does he have an angelic voice, and beautiful musicianship, but he has a joyful spirit,” said Daniel Burnett, close friend to Brian and his wife Katie. “It is mind-blowing that someone would do this to our friend. He is such a gentle soul, and I know he would be first in line to help if the tables were reversed."

Cantores in Ecclesia dedicated its April 1 concert to Tierney. Singers were emotional during the afternoon, when Tierney was slated to stand with them and sing.

Tierney’s mother and wife pleaded with the public to help solve the mystery on KOIN news April 4.

“I don’t know how that person can live with themselves,” Katie said.

The family has established an account at Unitas Community Credit Union, P.O. Box 1937, Portland, 97207. To follow Tierney’s recovery, log on to the Friends of Brian Tierney blog at www.friendsofbt.com.

Anyone with information about the shooting or who saw Tierney’s blue Chevy Cobalt on I-205 near the Southeast Division exit around 10:15 p.m. on March 28 is urged to contact Portland Police Detective Paul Dolbey at 503-823-0451 or [email protected]
