Oregon Festival of American Music 2015
My Blue Heaven
The Crooners
Sun, Aug 16, 1:30 - 3:30 pm
Jaqua Concert Hall, The Shedd Institute
Marriott Residence Inn
A new Festival tradition! Marisa Frantz, Evynne Hollens, Michael Stone, Bill Hulings, Ian Whitcomb, and The Emerald City Jazz Kings close OFAM 2015 with an afternoon "tea party" with the music of the great society bands of the 1920s with special tribute to the great crooners and chanteuses of 1920s popular music: Ruth Etting, Rudy Vallee, Al Bowlly, Gene Austin, Bing Crosby and more. Look for the strains reminiscent of the Paul Whiteman, Casa Loma, Ray Noble, Fletcher Henderson orchestras and more!
The format for the show will be our standard cabaret seating: top-ticketed cabaret seating down front of the main floor, and reserved seating up in the balcony, with a full bar, refreshments and goodies in the Tykeson Lobby. There will be 2 short intermissions. While dressing up is not required, we encourage it (especially if you go period!).
