Classically Trained & Improvisationally Minded
Colleen Adent is a classically trained, improvisationally minded pianist. She is a freelance musician, with over 35 years experience as a performer, composer, arranger, and teacher. As one of the Pacific Northwest’s accomplished pianists, the uniqueness of Colleen’s artistry lies in her ability to improvise as well as perform as a classical musician. These two disciplines are often viewed as two separate worlds, but Colleen lives comfortably in both places, embracing the strengths of each musical world to create a fresh, dynamic, engaging listening experience. Whether playing solo or collaboratively, sacred or secular, from the concert hall to an intimate home setting, Colleen’s warm personality and skillful playing naturally invite the listener to join her in embracing the moment.
