Concerts take place in the Museum’s John Williams Classroom. The Classroom creates an intimate setting that produces a sound warm enough to wrap up in. Seating for concerts are limited and is general admission. Complimentary refreshments are provided.
When concerts occur, tickets are available to purchase through the online gift shop, by phone, or in person. The cost of tickets help fund programs such as the Acoustic Folk! & Lecture Series, exhibits, and field trip programs.
It might be Friday the 13th, but we’re still going to rock the house! Whether your superstitious or not, this is a not-to-miss event. A little jazz noir is a great way to celebrate this day.
The Dmitri Matheny Duo will perform at the Cannon Beach History Center & Museum at 6:00 p.m. on Friday, September 13 as part of the Cottage Tour weekend event series. Tickets are just $20 and include a smorgasbord of refreshments.
Acclaimed for his warm tone, soaring lyricism and masterful technique, American flugelhornist Dmitri Matheny has been lauded as “one of the most emotionally expressive improvisers of his generation” (International Review of Music). An honors graduate of the Berklee College of Music, Dmitri Matheny vaulted onto the jazz scene in the 1990’s as the protégé of jazz legend, Art Farmer. Since then he has garnered critical acclaim and a loyal international following, touring extensively throughout the United States, Europe and Asia, traveling to 19 countries. With over 100 recordings to his credit, Dmitri Matheny has released 11 albums as a leader. His latest is Jazz Noir, a fresh spin on crime jazz, film noir movie themes and timeless classics. The San Francisco Chronicle calls Matheny “one of the jazz world’s most talented horn players.”
“Dmitri Matheny is a jazz treasure. The lyrical Matheny has impressive chops, but it’s his warmth and soulfulness that win you over.”—All Music Guide
This event will take place at the Cannon Beach History Center & Museum and is part of the museum’s annual fundraiser – the Cottage Tour. Funds go towards keeping the museum’s free lecture series, field trip program, and keeping our doors open. It’s definitely a worthy cause to support Cannon Beach’s only history museum.
Tickets are available to purchase at the museum, over the phone (503-436-9301), or through the online gift shop.
Join us on Saturday, September 14, at the Cannon Beach History Center & Museum for a post-tour reception and concert. Music starts at 6:00 p.m. and goes until 8:00 p.m. This event is included in the cost of your home tour ticket, but if you’d like to attend this event on it’s own, tickets may be purchased at the door.
The concert is a great way to kick back and relax, listen to some music and ruminate on the highlights of the day. This year, we are featuring the ultra talented and award winning Julie Amici and Dean Mueller. These two performers have been a secret local favorite, but the secret is out and how could it not be? No one can hide this talent forever! These two have been discovered by the Portland Tribune, The Cascade Blues Association, the Tillamook Herald, and more! Over the last year they’ve collaborated with Curtis Salgado, Chris Carlson, Alan Hager, Dave Fleschner, Dan Gildea, Henry Cooper, Carlton Jackson, Mark Shark, Alan Jones, and many others. We can’t say enough about Julie’s beautiful and haunting voice, or Dean’s inspiring bass playing. Julie’s strong yet sweet voice is reminiscent of the 50’s when female singers ruled the world of music, a time when jazz and blues co-mingled at the height of popular culture. Her repertoire combines the jazz of Billie Holiday with the soul of Nina Simone and the sophisticated country of Patsy Cline. Dean’s bass playing is rooted in the blues chops he earned playing with some of the finest blues legends in America and touring with the award winning international act, The Insomniacs. Need we say more about these amazing people?
