Polish Music at Polish Hall - Frederic's Birthday
Frédéric François Chopin was born between 22 February and 1 March 1810 - different sources cite different dates. We choose to celebrate his birthday on Feb. 28 with music dance and more! Since Chopin was a child prodigy, we invited some young pianists - as well as seasoned artists to celebrate with us.

Mitchell Falconer - piano + ALDancers, choreography by Agnieszka Laska
Chopin's preludes #1, #14 and #17 from Op. 28

Colleen Adent - piano:
1. Waltz in Db Major (Minute Waltz),Op 64, No 1
2. Nocturne in Eb Major, Op 55, No 2
3. Barcarolle, Op 60

Excerpts from "On an Overgrown Path" - a Spring 2015 concert at the Alberta Rose Theater by the Lyrical Strings Duo with ALDancers.

Matthew Kaminsky - piano, will play his own composition: "At the Top of the World"

Brathers Marcel and Sebastian will play short pieces by J. S. Bach.

A versatile soloist, arranger, and accompanist, Colleen Adent began her formal musical training at the age of four.  She received a Bachelor of Music degree in Piano Performance from Biola University, where she was twice named Outstanding Pianist of the Year.  She has studied with Harold Gray, Artistic Director of Portland Piano International, Lina Baranov of Moscow Conservatory and Cathy Kautsky of Lawrence University.
Colleen has performed with Professional Christian Wind Ensemble, Sapporo Philharmonic Orchestra, and Newport Symphony, under the direction of Norman Leyden.  She has appeared as a guest soloist with Oregon Pro Arte Chamber Orchestra, Newport Symphony, Jewish Symphony Orchestra, and with the Westwood Wind Quintet. She has enjoyed collaborating with both locally and internationally known artists such as classical saxophonist Harvey Pittel, and Robert Hale of the New York Metropolitan Opera.

Collaborative playing as well as solo appearances have taken her throughout the United States, Canada, Europe and Australia.  

Colleen has published Fount Of Every Blessing, a collection of original hymn arrangements with Fred Bock Music Co., and those arrangements can be heard on her CD, Count It All Joy. She and her husband reside in Vancouver, WA, where she maintains a private teaching studio.
