1:00 pm — Sherry Alves: Brazillian Quartet — $10

The Sherry Alves Brazilian Quartet is a collaboration with Brazilian composer/pianist Cassio Vianna, and Oregonians Sherry Alves, Jason Palmer, and Tim Gilson. Their work blends bossa-nova, samba and baião in a jazzistic style. Together they have recorded and performed a variety of Brazilian, Jazz, and contemporary music for over a decade. This concert features compositions by Baden Powell, Vinicius de Moraes, Pixinguinha, Djavan, Milton Nascimento, Antonio Carlos Jobim, Hoyce Moreno, originals by Vianna, and more.

Sherry Alves’s performances are an exploration of the great songwriters and storytellers of the past and present. Her clear tone and improvisatory vocal approach create fresh and nuanced musical experiences. Her debut album You Can Have Him was released in 2011 on Teal Creek Records. She is also the featured vocalist on Brazilian composer and pianist Cassio Vianna’s 2013 record Letters to Grace: A Song Cycle.

Sherry performs regularly in the Portland area, sharing the bandstand with Mel Brown, George Colligan, Christopher Woitach, Keller Coker, Dan Balmer, and many more. As a founding member of the American Metropole Orchestra, she arranged for and performed with the likes of Allen Toussaint, Lizz Wright, Martha Reeves, Jose James, Kurt Elling, Dave Frishberg, and Lynn Anderson. At the University of Northern Colorado, she shared the stage with the New York Voices and Aubrey Logan as a member of the Downbeat Award-winning vocal ensemble Vocal Lab, under the direction of Kerry Marsh. In 2018, she was a backup singer for Sara Bareilles at the Kennedy Center for the Arts in Washington, D.C.
