Michael Allen Harrison performs October 26 delivering music to the heart. His classical contemporary style carves a distinct niche of timeless music that has connected with so many during his two and a half decade career.
Harrison is known for his piano solo performances and recordings, his upbeat sound with his band, his work with inspiring vocalist Julianne Johnson, his skills producing and creating music for ballet, theater and film, his love for teaching and perhaps mostly known for his giving spirit. He was honored with a star on the walk of fame in front of the Portland Performing Arts Center for his artistic and community contributions to his beloved city of Portland Oregon.
Harrison is the founder and president of The Snowman Foundation which has raised over $2 million for music education supporting school programs, many community centers and has given hundreds of instruments and scholarships to kids who cannot afford them.
He created Ten Grands as the main platform and fundraiser where he and nine other pianists perform together on ten pianos to benefit the mission of The Snowman Foundation.
Harrison has several upcoming performances at the House on Metolius in Camp Sherman.
Solo performance on October 26 and two Christmas shows with Julianne Johnson on December 11-12.
