"Keep The Old Church Cool" Fundraiser with Michael Allen Harrison, pianist
The "Keep The Old Church Cool" Campaign is Heating up!
If you've ever been to a concert in the summer at The Old Church you know just how hot it can get! The Old Church is looking to the community to help raise $25,000 towards the upgrade of our current cooling and heating systems. Thanks to Michael Allen Harrison, who has graciously agreed to perform a fundraising concert for The Old Church, we hope to soon reach this goal.
As a pianist and composer, Michael Allen Harrison delivers music to the heart. His classical contemporary style carves a distinct niche of timeless music that has connected with so many during his two and a half decade career.
Recognized as a Steinway Signature Artist, Michael has built a reputation as a prolific and stylistically multifaceted pianist, playing classical, new age/world and contemporary jazz. In a career that has spanned over two decades, he has expanded his talents as a producer, composer and arranger.
Michael is known for his piano solo performances and recordings, his upbeat sound with his band, his love for teaching and perhaps mostly known for his giving spirit. He was honored with a star on the walk of fame in front of the Portland Performing Arts Center for his artistic and community contributions to his beloved city of Portland Oregon.
Michael's unique brand of music ranges from movie scores to passionate arrangements for piano, orchestra, ballet, jazz, fusion, Smooth Jazz, Pop, New Age, and Adult Contemporary. Michael Allen Harrison's CD, "Emotional Connection", received a NASA Orbiting Certificate for airplay in space on the space shuttle ENDEAVOR. His 1994 album "Circle of Influence" went up on the space shuttle DISCOVERY. On January 29, 1999, Michael was invited to perform in NYC at the United Nations premiering "Remembrance", a tribute song to the 50th Anniversary of Israel's Independence (which can be heard on his benefit CD "Seasons of Peace", recorded for the organization "Season of Non-Violence). Michael performed at THE WORLD PEACE CONFERENCE at The Hague, in the Netherlands on May 14, 1999.
