Come to an illuminating entrance into jazz!
World-renowned artists Art Lande (piano), Paul McCandless (sax & clarinet), John Guenther (woodwinds) and Tim Wendel (guitar) bring Oregonia to the SC Vets Hall on Saturday, November 9th at 11AM. This inclusive experience of Jazz is the second concert in Tandy Beal and Company’s ongoing ArtSmart Family Concert Series. Focused on the lyrical compositions of Ralph Towner & Paul McCandless, this quartet’s music is hopeful, heartful and sometimes mysterious as it echoes the beautiful musical terrain of the band Oregon.
Each artist brings a wealth of musical genres to the music: Art Lande has recorded on ECM with Mark Isham, Jan Garbarek, Gary Peacock and Paul McCandless and on A Field Guide to Sleep (Lullabies for Adults) with SC’s own Jon Scoville. Paul McCandless has won Grammy Awards with Bela Fleck, the Paul Winter Consort, and Al Jarreau. Wendel has performed at Carnegie Hall, toured extensively in rock, funk, jazz, and classical projects and traveled the entire United States playing in the Broadway National Tour of The Color Purple. Gunther has perfomed with Dewey Redman, Bill Frisell, the Dizzy Gillespie Allstars as well as the Sinfonieta Paris Chamber Quartet and the Banda Nacional de Cartago in Costa Rico.
Jon Scoville, the co-founder and musical director of Tandy Beal & Company, suggested an ECM recording of Art’s music for a dance of Tandy’s in 1976 and they have been fast friends ever since!
This is the fifth year that Tandy Beal and Company has presented the ArtSmart Family Concerts with world-renowned artists at affordable prices. The Company’s goal is that by offering great shows, a lifelong habit of theatre-going will be established. ArtSmart Family Concerts Series is part of the Company’s comprehensive arts education program reaching 20,000 youth in 3 counties.
“ WOW! I got to see Grammy award winners and artists from around the world for the price of 2 lattes!”
“We had no idea what a wonderful experience we were in for. It was educational, creative and an absolute delight.”
“I got to see a great show with my grandkids AND I got to drive in the daylight!”

About the Artist:
Noelle Correia (1977) After spending time tinkering around at her father’s auto repair/welding shop as a child, Noelle began to create an imaginary world out of carpenters chalk drawings and discarded car parts. This world turned the industrial environment of downtown Fresno into a delusional paradise. Noelle left Fresno at eighteen but took her imaginary world with her. Noelle has worked for many years in the arts education realm developing a profound relationship with culture, creative expression, and child development. She works to convey the beauty and complexities of human nature using texture, pattern, and narrative elements throughout her work. Noelle’s work further explores themes such as cross-cultural awareness, women’s spirituality, and the botanical world through painting and collage practices. These subject matters are expressed through a vibrant play on color and form through painted paper cut collage and watercolor. The mixed mediums employed here includes watercolor, acrylic painting, cut paper collage, and encaustic painting. Noelle currently works as a Visual Artist and Art Instructor from her home studio at the Tannery Arts Center in Santa Cruz, CA.
