Colleen will be joining Tatiana Kolchanova (Violin) in celebration of Dubussy’s Centennial Remembrance Concert.

Via Cascasdia Composers, “On March 25th, 1918, Claude Debussy died after a long illness, as German shells from the biggest artillery of World War I exploded in the streets of Paris around his home. 100 years to the day later, and much more quietly, ten Cascadia composers will pay musical tribute to Debussy’s life, work, and influence, echoing “Tombeau de Claude Debussy,” his postwar memorial concert, from “across the sea”.
Debussy’s masterwork “Songs of Bilitis”, sung by Hannah Penn with pianist Monica Ohuchi, will top off the evening. This concert concludes the March Music Moderne VI festspiel and was developed in cooperation with Bob Priest, MMM artistic director.”

Colleen Adent is a classically trained, improvisationally minded pianist. She is a freelance musician, with over 35 years experience as a performer, arranger, and teacher. As one of the Pacific Northwest’s accomplished pianists, the uniqueness of Colleen’s artistry lies in her ability to improvise as well as perform as a classical musician. These two disciplines are often viewed as two separate worlds, but Colleen lives comfortably in both places, embracing the strengths of each musical world to create a fresh, dynamic, engaging listening experience. Whether playing solo or collaboratively, sacred or secular, from the concert hall to an intimate home setting, Colleen’s warm personality and skillful playing naturally invite the listener to join her in embracing the moment.
