on Charbonneau’s Grand Piano”

Charbonneau Arts Association presents “Sally Harmon on Grand Piano” as part of the 2024 Music Stage at Charbonneau series of concerts.

With twenty-six releases and well over a million recordings sold, Sally thrills audiences internationally with her passionate and entertaining piano appearances. Her formal training from age four through her Master’s Degree, plus being on a university piano faculty does not stop her from her antics on stage. Sally parodies classical music, tells wild stories and plays beautifully woven melodies of her own with grace, passion and virtuosity.

Her husband Frank is an accomplish jazz bass player, and has instilled in her an appreciation for swing, jazz, and pop influences. Now Sally’s music is a marriage of many styles.

Sally says “I like smaller, more intimate types of venues, like Charbonneau, where I can improvise and have more fun. I love being around people and entertaining. I like that “one on one” feeling that happens in smaller rooms. I use my classical training to do arrangements of popular and most requested songs that everybody like to hear.”

“History of Rock”
A Musical Journey with the Two Bit Brothers:
through the 1950‘s – 1970’s

Sunday, August 11 at 3:00 pm

32000 SW Charbonneau Drive
Wilsonville, OR 97070

Charbonneau Arts Association presents “History of Rock” with Two Bit Brothers as part of the 2024 Music Stage at Charbonneau series of concerts.

Travel through time with great music from the 1950’s through the 1970’s.  Starting with the rockabilly and early country of the 1950’s, you’ll hear great tunes from famous artists such as the Everly Brothers, Sam Cooke, Carl Perkins and Johnny Cash.  The 1950’s were the foundational years which inspired and set the tone for the coming generation of great music. Move into the 1960’s with the British Invasion by the Beatles coupled with the emerging folk scene with music by artists like Bob Dylan, Donovan and Simon and Garfunkel.  The 1960’s created the blend of folk and rock which set the stage for the next generation of music, the emerging 1970’s rock scene in the US. The decade of the 1970’s was shaped by a blend of the sounds of Motown, blues, rock and country.  Groups such as America, Crosby, Stills, Nash and Young, Santana, The Band, Eric Clapton and Loggins and Messina filled the airways.  The 1970’s also saw another influence, the impacts of country on rock and roll.  The Eagles dominated radio with their blend of country rock and three part harmonies. Join the Two Bit Brothers on this amazing and magical musical journey.

The Two Bit Brothers have been performing in the Pacific Northwest for many years and consist of a duo of Bill Valach and Dwaine Wisthoff.  The Two Bit Brothers have performed over 150 local shows per year and their soulful and heartfelt performance style speaks to their passion for music.  The Two Bit Brothers enjoy being able to provide the music that can lift your spirit and bring a smile to your face.  https://2bitbrothers.com/

Richard R. Brown Fine Arts Auditorium

The Richard R. Brown Fine Arts Auditorium is located at Canby High School in Canby, Oregon.  Built in 1993, it serves as a cultural center for Canby as well as a venue for high school events.  With seating for almost 800, it is an outstanding facility for community and school events.

Charbonneau Arts Association presents this one-of-a-kind concert as a special project benefiting the performing arts teachers and student programs of Canby schools.  There are three parts of this concert:

  • Big Horn Brass annual holiday concert program.
  • Canby High School Jazz Band award winning program.
  • A special performance of an original work commissioned by CAA and performed by the combined musicians of BHB and Canby Jazz Band students.

BIG HORN BRASS (BHB): Founded in 1983, the professional performers of BHB include thirteen brass and two percussionists, the finest you will hear anywhere. They combine their diverse musical skills and love of music with exacting perfection from each element in their repertoire.  Programs may include movie themes from Disney and composer John Williams, Beatles tunes, classical, romantic, renaissance, ragtime, marches, brass band, patriotic, civil war, contemporary, original, and even big band charts. We also feature commissioned works that are original, unique, and fun.

But Big Horn Brass is best known for our Holiday-Christmas show. This annual concert typically includes original arrangements from the Stan Kenton Library; unique and compelling arrangements by Oregon’s Phil Neuman and Washington’s William Berry; traditional favorites for classical brass by Leroy Anderson and James Burden, soaring melodies by movie composer Jerry Fielding; and engaging performances by one of our outstanding jazz vocalists.

CANBY JAZZ BAND: Led by Nick Luchterhand, the Canby High Jazz Band has competed and received high marks at many Oregon competitions, often finishing in or near the top on a consistent basis.  “It’s a very special group of students,” Luchterhand reports. “Competition is not everything, but it’s a tangible mark of success, and a tangible mark that these kids are getting a quality music education, which is the most important thing to me.” In addition to his teaching at Canby High School, he is also a saxophone player in the Portland area, and a full time doctor of music education student at Liberty University.
