An Evening with Dick Hyman and Friends
July 6, 2015
7 p.m. | $75 Includes a Smorgasbord dinner and selected beverages
8800 SW Oleson Rd. Portland, OR
Join us for a very special fundraiser benefit for Scandinavian Heritage Foundation and the Portland Chamber Orchestra with legendary jazz great Dick Hyman and friends. Joining Mr. Hyman is Clarinetist Ken Peplowski, and when you hear these two together, it will seem as though they are joined at the hip, musically speaking. Add three outstanding Portland locals, this will be a show not to be missed.
Throughout a busy musical career that got underway in the early ’50s, Dick Hyman has functioned as pianist, organist, arranger, music director, and composer. His versatility in all of these areas has resulted in a long career involving film scores, orchestral compositions, concert appearances and well over 100 albums recorded under his own name. In addition to his activities in the jazz and concert worlds, Mr. Hyman has had a prolific career in New York as a studio musician and won seven Most Valuable Player Awards from the National Academy of Recording Arts and Sciences.
