Oregon Coast Council for the Arts celebrates 15 years of the annual Oregon Coast Jazz Party, which is held October 5-7, 2018 at the Newport Performing Arts Center in Newport. "Honoring Women in Jazz" is the theme of this year's event, to mark its 15th anniversary.
The Oregon Coast Jazz Party celebrates great live jazz – and the dedicated fans who love it – in the beautiful town of Newport, on the central Oregon coast. Expect multiple sets from renowned jazz stars, nightcap performances, and educational events during your stay.
Hofmann's roster includes the amazing jazz violinist Regina Carter's Quartet, alto sax star Grace Kelly's Quartet, and guitarist Mimi Fox's renowned San Francisco String Trio; as well as Tanya Darby on trumpet, vocalist Sinne Eeg, Yve Evans on piano and vocals, Kerry Politzer's Bossa PDX, and pianist Helen Sung. The South Eugene High School Dorians vocal jazz ensemble will also appear at the event this year, with Evans at the piano. Special guests include pianist George Colligan, drummer Alvester Garnett, bassist Tom Wakeling, and pianist Mike Wofford, as well as bassist Dylan Sundstrom, and drummer Charlie Doggett.
