Featuring George Colligan with PJCE and Fredson the Jeffy

October 17, 2021 7:30pm
The Old Church

Like a tap takeover at your favorite brewpub, PJCE asked the pianist, composer, and PSU professor George Colligan to assemble a cast of his favorite young Portland jazz artists to compose and perform in our first in-person concert since the beginning of the pandemic. Among Portland’s brightest jazz stars and a steady presence on national and international jazz stages, we wanted to shine a spotlight on a brilliant musician who plays an important role as a mentor in our jazz community.

Colligan’s chamber-jazz trio Fredson the Jeffy will open the show, performing music from their upcoming PJCE Records release, followed by PJCE’s flagship 12-member jazz ensemble. In addition to selections from Colligan’s Fathers and Sons suite that PJCE commissioned in 2016, young composers Andres Moreno, Quinn Walker (both PJCE Young Jazz Composers program alums) and Wes Georgiev will also contribute world premiere compositions.

The Heroine's Journey

February 5th, 2022 7:30pm
The Old Church

In this double bill concert, Rebecca Sanborn and Marilyn Keller step forward as lyricists and songwriters, each contributing a set of new songs about how recognizing and honoring dreams, both literal and figurative, can change lives. Keller’s lyrics for My Dreams, My Journey, with music written by Darrell Grant and arranged for PJCE by Machado Mijiga, celebrates faith, love, and family in joyful and sometimes poignant gospel-infused songs. Sanborn’s composition collection, Shadow Work, arranged by Douglas Detrick, is inspired by the connection between dreams and waking life, and the compassionate integration of our light and dark sides into a fully realized vision of becoming whole.

7:30 pm, 6:30 pm doors The Old Church 1422 SW 11th Ave, Portland, OR 97201
“Shadow Work” by Rebecca Sanborn at 7:30 pm
“My Dreams, My Journey” by Marilyn Keller and Darrell Grant at 8:30 pm
