"Bach to Jazz"

Flutist Jas. Adams and Portland organist/pianist Michael Barnes will appear in concert Tuesday, Nov.18, at noon in Cone Chapel in Waller Hall at Willamette University. The concert is free and open to the public.

Musical selections will include the G minor sonata for flute and obbligato organ by J.S. Bach, a sonata for flute and keyboard composed by Mozart as a child, "En bateau" by Claude Debussy, and four movements from Claude Bolling's "Suite for Flute and Jazz Piano," a cross-over piece written for and definitively recorded by Jean-Pierre Rampal and the composer.

Adams has frequently performed chamber music in Oregon and abroad. He is a member of Duo Arpeggio (flute and harp) and Duo Adams-Mery (flute and classical guitar), which has twice performed at the Hallie Ford Museum of Art. A founding board member of the Portland Baroque Orchestra, he also sings in the Portland Baroque Orchestra Chorus. Adams is also an adjunct faculty member at the Willamette College of Law.

Barnes is organist at Westminster Presbyterian Church and assistant organist at Temple Beth Israel, both in Portland. He has toured nationally with Community Concerts and tours internationally as the third member of the infamous BoZoArtZ Duo. He is also a consummate accompanist on piano for a wide range of musicians and musical organizations, both vocal and instrumental, throughout the Pacific Northwest.

The concert is sponsored by the Office of the Chaplain at Willamette University. Although the program is at noon, the audience is asked not to bring food or beverages into Cone Chapel.
