Colleen Adent, Pianist
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.

*Directions to Tatiana’s house: From Vancouver, head east on Hwy 14 and exit onto Washougal River Road, heading north. From Washougal River Rd, turn left onto SE 17th St. SE 17th St turns right and becomes SE Coffey Rd. Continue onto SE 312th Ave. Turn right onto NE 9th St. Make a slight left onto NE 322nd Avenue. Continue onto NE Ammeter Rd.

**Directions to Barbara’s house: From Portland, take Highway 30 toward the coast to the outskirts of Scappoose. Turn left at the first traffic light (at a Fred Meyer store) and go one block. Turn left on Old Portland Road, then third right on Callahan Rd. After 1.6 miles, make a soft left on Wayside, which soon becomes Moon Ridge Ct., and then our driveway. Park near the house or on the uphill side of the driveway. Alternatively, after turning off Callahan onto Wayside, stay left (continuing on Wayside). After passing three houses on the hillside to your right (the third one is ours), you’ll come to some graveled steps on the right, with plenty of parking on both sides of the road. Take the steps up to the house, and walk around to the front.
