Like jazz, life in the time of the pandemic is about improvisation. For the first time since its inception in 1980, the swinging sounds of the 40th annual Cathedral Park Jazz Festival 2020 will – as so many festivals and performances these days - be virtual, streaming live online at Friday through Sunday, July 17-19, 2020. Highlights of this year’s three-day festival celebrating jazz, blues, R&B, and funk: pianist and vocalist Steve Kerin and the Bayou Boyz, originally from Louisiana but now calling Portland home; violinist Eddie Parente, channelling the great jazz violinists like Stephane Grappelli, Stuff Smith, and Joe Venuto; and soulful vocalist Saeeda Wright and her nine-piece orchestra.

RESCHEDULED: Ten Grands Celebrates 20 Years of Supporting Music Education

WHERE: Keller Auditorium, Portland
WHEN: Nov. 15, 2020, 5 p.m.

The performance is a feat in itself: 10 grand pianos on one stage, showcasing individual performers and masterfully-arranged pieces in styles that range from classical and jazz to New Age and contemporary pop. To date, it remains the only such show of its kind in terms of piano count, but also longevity. What began as a seed of an idea on a napkin 20 years ago between pianist, composer, and co-producer Michael Allen Harrison and co-producer, stage director Greg Tamblyn is now an iconic Portland tradition. And this year promises to be its best yet with some of the Pacific Northwest’s biggest piano icons and freshest talent coming together in one place, including Michael Allen Harrison, Tom Grant, William Chapman Nyaho, Mac Potts, Hailey Potts – with special guests Thomas Lauderdale and Hunter Noack.
