2017 Siletz Bay Music Festival

WOW, it’s Summer 2017 already and has been a busy year to date and Summer continues the trend. The Siletz Bay Music Festival is an series of concerts I look forward to every year. With each new festival season, the dedicated participants and patrons of the Siletz Bay Music Festival demonstrate their dedication to bringing high quality music performances and education to the Central Oregon Coast.

This year I am excited to be a part of two concerts:

CONTRASTS – Songs from an “Almanac of Words at Play”
Wednesday, June 28, 2017 – 7:30pm

BENEFIT – “Jazz and the American Popular Song” – The Annual Artists Showcase/Fundraiser
Sunday, July 2, 2017 – 4pm

Both concerts take place at the Salishan Spa & Golf Resort – Long House at Salishan Lodge in Gleneden Beach, Oregon. If you have been looking for an excuse to get to the coast of Northern Oregon – THIS would be it!

 

Musical Legends & Phenomenal Talent 

In CONTRASTS, on Wednesday, June 28, 2017 – 7:30pm, Jazz great, Dick Hyman has yet again worked his particular magic. I look forward to sharing the stage with fabulous vocalists, Clairdee and Nicole Greenidge Joseph. I performed with these two beautiful women last year in Dick Hyman’s 2016 show, “On Wings of Shakespeare” – a fabulous evening of music and Shakespeare in a very entertaining format. 

This evening of contrasts begins “On the Lighter Side” and ends “In Hot Pursuit” with the legendary composer, Dick Hyman and his sidekick Jazz Impresario Clarinetist, Ken Peplowski. The two will take the stage with a sextet for this second act of instrumentals. All in all, an evening of phenomenal talent!
