New frontiers in Jazz music were explored this weekend at Portland’s 3rd Annual Montavilla Jazz Festival.
The two-day festival, featured extraordinary local jazz musicians and some of Portland’s finest composed jazz music. The event also spotlighted emerging student artists and visiting musicians who are redefining the jazz world.
As a lover of jazz, Nick was thrilled to speak at the festival and to introduce the Executive Director of the Portland Jazz Composers’ Ensemble, Douglas Detrick. Portland’s very own jazz pianist, George Colligan, joined the ensemble in headlining both nights of the event.
Check out the Montavilla Jazz Festival’s website to learn more about the musical event.
This Saturday, join over 100 volunteers to help clean-up our beautiful Johnson Creek.
Johnson Creek travels 26 miles before reaching its confluence at the Willamette River in Milwaukie. The creek passes through upland forests, farms, residential communities, wildlife refuges, industrial enclaves, and golf courses.
Last year, 160 volunteers removed an incredible 3.5 tons of trash from the creek! All sites will be prescreened by trained project staff.
After the clean-up, sponsors will host a community barbecue event by Overland Park Coalition from 12-2pm.
Make sure to bring a water bottle and appropriate closed-toed shoes are required. Be prepared to get wet and muddy!
For questions, contact project staff at firstname.lastname@example.org or call (503) 652 – 7477 ext. 101.
