April Showers Bring. . . Rainbows

Hello all!

As April goes skating by, I wanted to let you know about a couple of upcoming concerts:

  • Saturday, April 21, at 4:00 p.m. – Benefit Concert at St. John’s Presbyterian Church in Camas, WA
    This is a Scholarship Fund Benefit Concert sponsored by the  Clark County Music Teachers Association.
    The Vancouver Piano Trio will perform and I will also be playing my arrangement of Over the Rainbow.
    For more information, see the Facebook event page https://www.facebook.com/events/2013454698977452/

Speaking of Over the Rainbow, there are just two weeks left to the publishing contest! If you haven’t had a chance to pick up your copy of my arrangement, you can get it right here https://www.sheetmusicplus.com/title/20705432. You can even leave a review, which helps other people find my music!

  • Saturday, May 12, at 7:00 p.m. Ten Grands – Seattle at Benaroya Hall
    We are taking our Ten Grands show on the road! If you are near Seattle or enjoy driving, I highly recommend this opportunity! Benaroya Hall is a beautiful location and the Seattle Symphony are wonderful hosts!
    Tickets can be found through the Seattle Symphony at https://www.seattlesymphony.org/TenGrands.

In other exciting news, I’ve started a public Facebook page! You can now “like” my page at www.facebook.com/colleenadent to keep up to date with the latest concert info, photos, and news!

Wishing you bountiful, beautiful May flowers!

Over the Rainbow

Hello friends, near and far!

It is my pleasure to announce that my arrangement of Over The Rainbow (from the Wizard of Oz) is now available for purchase through SMP Press!

Pianist Michael Allen Harrison has dubbed Over The Rainbow as my signature piece, describing it as a melding of my classical training and “heartfelt improvisational style.” As a Ten Grands artist, I’ve had opportunity to perform this piece as part of the Ten Grands show not only in Portland, OR, but in Seattle, WA and West Palm Beach, FL as well. There have been many requests for the arrangement, but due to copyright restrictions, I’ve been unable to share it – until now!!

Here’s the fun twist: I’ve entered this piece in a contest with SMP Press! The contest runs from March 1 through April 27, 2018 and winners are determined by the highest number of orders in each category (this piece being in the piano category). The winner will receive a cash prize as well as mentions on the SMP website, the SMP newsletter and social media.

If you are interested in purchasing the piece for yourself or someone you know, NOW IS THE TIME to check out the link below!

https://www.sheetmusicplus.com/title/20705432

Of course, you are more than welcome to share this link with anyone you know who may be interested, and if you are willing to post reviews, please feel free! The option is available on the link above, and your comments will be helpful to other Sheet Music Plus customers.

Thank you so much for your support and interest in my musical pursuits, and may your days be filled with over-the-rainbow delights!

Warmly,

Colleen

Welcome, 2018!

IMG 9902 261x300 Welcome, 2018!

Hello friends, far and wide!

Happy New Year to all of you! I wanted to take a quick moment to let you know that I’ve been quietly working away on a few new projects. Most recently I’ve been turning my attention to arrangements for voice and piano. Several of these arrangements will be performed on Saturday, January 20, 2018, at a concert which is part of the “Classics and Croissants “concert series held at Classic Pianos’ Recital Hall. Janice Johnson, soprano, and Jill Timmons, pianist, will be presenting a program featuring American poets and composers – from the art song to Broadway. I’ll be there and would love to see you there as well! (The concert starts at 10:00 a.m. with refreshments and reception to follow. Reserve your seats with Peggie at Classic Pianos)

While arranging and teaching keeps me busy, I’m also delighted to have performance opportunities! Here’s a quick rundown on when and where I’ll be performing this spring:

(Performing with Tatiana Kolchanova, violinist) Concert details to be updated soon.
