Description

Pianist, composer and PSU professor Darrell Grant has appeared on major concert stages from the Weill Recital Hall at Carnegie Hall to the Monterey, and San Francisco Jazz Festivals. For his CMA commissioned work “The Territory,” which Grant debuted last summer with Chamber Music Northwest, the sweeping nine movement piece blends improvisation and composition and draws inspiration on Oregon’s historical heritage as well as the incredible and diverse landscapes in the region. Grant will be joined by award-winning vibraphonist Joe Locke and an all Portland support ensemble to include: bassist, Eric Gruber; drummer, Tyson Stubelek; saxophonist, John Nastos; bass clarinetist, Kurt Peterson; trumpeter, Tom Barber; singer, Marilyn Keller and cellist, Hamilton Cheifetz.
