Noontime Showcase: VanPort Jazz
The VanPort Jazz performs big band music ranging from the 20’s through the 50’s, along with some contemporary charts. You will hear hits from Glenn Miller, Benny Goodman, Duke Ellington, Buddy Rich, Doc Severinsen, Sammy Nestico, Count Basie, and many others.
VanPort Jazz is made up of professional and semi-professional musicians. We have performed at venues such as the Laurelhurst Club, Clark College, Pierson Air Museum, Clark County Fairgrounds, Luepke Center, Firstenburg Center, Kiggins Theater, and the Portland 5 Performing Arts noon concert series.
This is the second of ten weekly, free noontime performances as part of Summer Arts on Main, which feature a wide variety of performers and styles. Suitable for all ages.
Noontime Showcase & Summer Arts on Main
During July and August, Noontime Showcase- a monthly free performance held inside Antoinette Hatfield Hall during most of the year- moves out to Main Street and changes to a weekly schedule. This Noontime Showcase is part of the 2017 Summer Arts on Main series, which runs 11am to 2pm every Wednesday from July 5 to September 6, with free performances, children’s activities, and outdoor booths featuring local artisans selling handmade crafts. Summer Arts on Main Street runs concurrently with the Portland Farmers Market in the adjacent park blocks (Shemanski Park at Park Ave. & Main St.).
