Kendall Concerts: Music Under the Dome is a monthly planetarium concert series combining live performances with stunning visuals in riots of color, shape and movement, enveloping the audience into an adventure of the senses without ever having to leave their seat.
Portland, Oregon-based songwriter, pianist, and vocalist Naomi LaViolette has found her niche amongst retro-style grooves, cool jazz, and classical arrangements. Naomi’s smooth vocals are remniscent of Norah Jones' sultry blues and the ambience of Sarah McLachlan, and her wide-ranging keyboard sounds evoke both the funky rhythms of Billy Preston and classic folk-rock of Carole King.
Naomi has released four records, most recently Live at The Old Church with Members of the Oregon Symphony, released February 2019. Her work with Steven Goodwin and the Saving His Music project has received prominent coverage in national and local news, including CBS Sunday Morning. Their record, entitled The Nature Of Love, spent three weeks on the Billboard New Age chart in January 2018.
Naomi’s roots are deep in classical music—she has a master’s degree in classical piano performance—but she has also immersed herself in jazz standards, folk songs, soul, pop, and gospel. Her original music has received great reviews and critical acclaim from media and she has performed at esteemed venues and festivals including the Portland Jazz Festival, The Doug Fir Lounge, and The Bite of Oregon. She has been the pianist for the Oregon Repertory Singers since 2004.
Kendall Concerts is an all ages, monthly music series. For more information please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
