Oregon StoriesAudio Documentaries of Exceptional Oregonians Set to Original Music for 12-Piece Jazz Chamber Orchestra

Oregon Stories: Portland
Friday, April 8, 7:30 p.m.
The Old Church
Tickets: $15 general admission, $12 PJCE members, $10 Students

The Oregon Stories Project is a program of three new documentary pieces with original music produced for broadcast on public radio and for live performance throughout Oregon, featuring the stories of three exceptional Oregonians coming from minority communities who achieved great things. Oregon Stories is a project of the Portland Jazz Composers Ensemble.

The three performances tell the story of George Akiyama, a Hood River resident threatened with violence after serving in World War II – and a fellow citizen who stepped forward to support him, as told by historian Linda Tamura – as well as the stories of two other Oregonians.

Visit pjce.org to learn more about Oregon Stories, the other performances, or to purchase tickets.
