Oregon Coast Council for the Arts (OCCA) is pleased to announce that the Claire Daly Quartet will perform at 7 p.m. Tuesday, June 5 at the Newport Performing Arts Center’s Studio Theatre. The quartet’s performance, one of several stops on a West Coast tour sponsored by North Coast Brewing Company, is a fundraiser for the ninth annual Oregon Coast Jazz Party (formerly Jazz at Newport), which is slated for Oct. 5-7, 2012.
Ticket prices are $12 for adults, $5 for students, and are available from the Newport Performing Arts Center box office, at 777 W. Olive Street in Newport. Box office hours are 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday and one hour prior to performance time.
The quartet will perform the compositions of the legendary jazz pianist and composer Thelonious Monk. Pianist Steve Hudson, bassist Mary Ann McSweeney, and drummer Peter Grant join baritone saxophonist and flutist Daly in the quartet. The West Coast tour, with stops in Vancouver, B.C, Seattle, Eureka, Mendocino, and Santa Cruz, leads up to the quartet’s recording of a new recording, “Baritone Monk,” in New York City on June 18.
