PLPA Supports Young Musicians

CHIMING IN: Shelley Patton (right, holding microphone) presents a giant $1,000 check to the CHIME IN! program, which benefits all music programs in the Chimacum School District.

Patton is a board member of Port Ludlow Performing Arts, a non-profit organization that promotes music education and raises money by staging concerts in Port Ludlow. The presentation was made Sunday, April 23, at a silent auction/fundraiser hosted by Finnriver Farm & Cidery in Port Hadlock.

Pictured from left are CHIME IN! supporters Marci Heemstra, Stella Paterson, Rebecca Turner and Carla Powell, Shelley Patton of PLPA, and Chimacum School Music Director Mitch Brennan.

In March, PLPA hosted a concert at the Bay Club, performed by a group of Port Townsend High School musician/students. The concert, a fundraiser, was well-attended and received ahead of the students’ trip to Southern California, where they had the opportunity to participate in a music clinic, attend a performance of the Los Angeles Philharmonic, visit a college campus, and play in a music festival.

Thursday, March 7, 2024 7 PM

An American Traditional Pop/Vocal Jazz group from Los Angeles that combines the sounds of the legendary American crooners and vocal groups with the fire and energy of Gypsy Jazz guitarist Django Reinhardt.

Consisting of five world-class musicians who have traveled the globe recording and performing on the world’s biggest stages with music’s most renowned artists, they deliver a high-energy, crowd-pleasing performance filled with some of the best songs ever written.

Their show features material from the Great American Songbook infused with Django’s romantic and virtuosic flavor. Add some intricate vocal harmonies, a dash of Rat-Pack style comedy and you have one of the premier live acts performing in music today.

Spencer Day

Saturday, April 27, 2024 7 PM

American singer-songwriter Spencer Day is best known as a finalist on CBS' network show "Star Search" and for his subsequent hit jazz single, "Till You Come To Me." But this modern jazz vocalist and pianist is as comfortable with Broadway and pop as he is re-crafting Cole Porter and George Gershwin. Counting everyone from Chet Baker, Joni Mitchell, John Lennon and Paul Simon as his early influences, Day has released six albums and appeared coast to coast, from the Kennedy Center in Washington D.C. to the Monterrey Jazz Festival.
