Join us this Valentines Day with The Kennedy Realness. We will be pouring some special wines by the glass and some tasty desserts while Kennedy will be throwing down some acoustic jams all night long.
Kennedy is bringing the realness to Portland with an acoustic set of classics and original improvisations for pianoforte and didjeridu.
Kennedy is the composer and curator of the Mad Composer Lab, a concept studio designed to explore the process of music composition. Kennedy’s musical vocabulary is eclectic, innovative and truly authentic. As a musician, Kennedy has performed with many professional ensembles playing bassoon and contrabassoon. Additionally, Kennedy performs on piano and an assortment of exotic instruments, including didjeridu and duduk and can be heard on various soundtrack recordings. Highly talented and expressive with the baton, he has served as conductor of the Monroe Symphony Youth Honors Orchestra, and has guested with a variety of groups from coast to coast. His background as an orchestral musician, conductor, and player of exotic instruments offers Kennedy an unparalleled perspective in the workings and abilities of a wide range of ensembles in the marriage of sound, visuals, and emotion. This expansive and eclectic experience, united with his limitless imagination, allows him to offer in his music and teaching, an incredibly broad pallet of musical timbre and philosophies.
