This Friday June 17th Michelle’s Pianos welcomes Toshiko Akiyoshi to the stage in our recital hall. We are partnering with the Bravo Northwest Concert Series in bringing this wonderful Jazz Legend and GRAMMY Nominated artist. But in fact, Michelle’s Piano is fast becoming a well liked venue for jazz, classical, piano studio recitals and other music performances.
Michelle’s recital room is becoming a well known room due to its wonderful acoustic, low rental costs, and the ability to socialize afterwards. In fact, we have hosted some great performers of international and national fame. But the main reason that performers love to do their concerts here is due to the fact that they have a brand new 9′ Steinway on the stage. Randy Porter , Portland native & Steinway Artist, remarked that a lot of the jazz musicians really love the room but more importantly appreciate the beneficial relationship which builds greater community.
Most venues have subpar instrument for their performance space. When you have the best piano in the world on your stage, the audience then gets to enjoy the best performance in the world. The other factor which makes Michelle’s desirable is the fact that their isn’t a restaurant and immense amount of background noise. Not to say, that the concert goer can participate in some nibbles and refreshments it is the best of both worlds- food, folks and fun so to speak. Check our website often for upcoming events, Costs are relatively low and the interaction between performer and audience is warm and inviting!
