The Portland "Winter" Concert...


I just got back from a really nice concert in Portland, Oregon over the weekend. The show went very well and we had a bigger crowd than I anticipated, which is always a pleasant surprise.

The concert was at Sherman Clay Piano's, which is one of my favorite venues to play at. I love the concert room they have there. It's just such a relaxing, warm space, and the concert lighting is always perfect to set the mood. Plus, the pianos they provide for me are always top notch. This time was no exception, as they provided a beautiful, brand new, Steinway.

Here are a couple photos from the show...




The set list went as planned, for the most part. Here is what I played

The Vigil
A Midnight Rain
While the Trees Sleep
Solitude
Racing the Northern Lights
Wonderland
Big Snow in Salzburg
One Night at Mozart's

(intermission)

Overcome
Winter Walk (first ever concert performance of this song)
A Delicate Joy (first concert performance of an unreleased song)
How Great Thou Art (first concert performance of an unreleased song)
Sweet Dreams and Starlight
Greensleeves
O Come Emmanuel
God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen

All told, the show went about an hour and 45 minutes.

Now I start into the thick of my holiday schedule. This Friday, Saturday and Sunday I'm playing fifteen hours at Valley River Center, the local mall here in Eugene.

And then starts the December mall shows. I'm looking forward to them.

Cheers!

Awesome. I will be sure to talk to my pastor, like you said. We have a room in our church (our church is huge)called the Imani room. There's a beautiful black piano, Yamaha and I think it would be totally great. I guess I'll get back to you on that.
Great pics!

Sounds awesome... too bad I can't make it away from the shop very often. It makes for shows to be few and far between, unfortunately.
