CGOA’s Jazz Collective April 7
Returning to the Gorge for a concert with Columbia Gorge Orchestra Association Jazz Collective Big Band, singer Bre Gregg and her band will be special guests at a concert on Friday, April 7 at the Wy’east Performing Arts Center. Gregg is a “powerhouse singer who has performed around the world and has quite the eclectic musical stage education, from classical music all the way to swampy soul and blues. If you close your eyes and change your expectations, you will hear strong influences from Bonnie Raitt, Nina Simone, and maybe even a dash of Patsy Cline.” The concert begins at 7 p.m. Tickets are $15 adults (18 and older) and $10 students and children (10-17). Tickets are available at the door and online through gorgeorchestra.org.
