JOURNEY ACROSS MUSICAL BOUNDARIES WITH WORLD-RENOWNED JAZZ VOCALIST HALIE LOREN
AND THE CENTRAL COAST JAZZ ALLIANCE
at the Newport Performing Arts Center
Saturday, September 3 at 7:00pm
Oregon Coast Council for the Arts is thrilled to welcome back the riveting Halie Loren, who will star in a concert benefitting the Newport Performing Arts Center’s upcoming 2022 Oregon Coast Jazz Party.
Halie Loren has performed on several occasions at the Center, much to the delight of local jazz enthusiasts. Hailing from Oregon and Alaska, Loren’s busy career has taken her to venues all over the world, including shows in Asia, Europe, North Africa, and the Caribbean, as well as across North America. Loren offers up songs in several different languages and employs a range of musical styles–weaving jazz, blues, pop, and world flavors—bringing her fresh approach to original songs and to well-loved standards. Loren’s many awards and honors include debuting at No. 1 on Billboard Jazz/Japan, reaching No.1 on the iTunes Canada jazz albums chart, and winning an Emmy for best Music Video from the National Academy of Television Arts and Sciences in 2019.
Loren’s success represents a recording artist and songwriter devoted to her craft. But everyone who has seen her in person knows there’s something very special about her live performances, with her lush, warm voice. Joining her on stage will be a fine group of musicians. Matt Treder has played keyboards for Loren for many years and also provides excellent back-up vocals. Rob Koeler will carry the “bottom” on bass, and Charlie Doggett will keep perfect time on drums. The performance promises to be filled with a perfect blend of familiar and new jazz selections.
Local jazz quintet The Central Coast Jazz Alliance will open the event. With Bill Hartsell on guitar, John Bringetto on trumpet and flugelhorn, Matt White on saxophone, Greg Berton on bass, and Dr. Sandy Schaefer on drums, the group has been playing venues in Lincoln County and has quickly developed a loyal following. (Fans will recognize Hartsell and Bringetto from the group Perpetua.) Most of the Alliance’s numbers are original and provide an excellent display of each player’s mastery of his instrument.
This concert will benefit the upcoming 2022 Oregon Coast Jazz Party taking place September 30-October 1. An Oregon Coast tradition, the Jazz Party will present three shows, each with a feature set along with lively performances by musicians playing together in dynamic and unexpected combinations.
So, be sure to save Saturday, September 3rd to enjoy Halie Loren and The Central Coast Jazz Alliance. The Newport Performing Arts Center is thrilled to be open again for live entertainment, and this is one evening you will not want to miss, whether you are a lifelong jazz fan or new to the genre.
