Music a la Carte (Facebook Live): Halie Loren

Singer-songwriter/pop-jazz artist Halie Loren will give a Facebook Live performance on the Music a la Carte Facebook page.

The Music à la Carte Facebook page can be found at: Facebook Live events are free to view.

Loren has been sharing her passion for authentic story-telling through music for the past 20 years.

A a long-time Oregonian born in Seattle and raised in the wilds of the Southeast islands of Alaska, Loren draws her songwriting inspiration from nature. Her award-winning original songs (Billboard World Song contest, Independent Music Awards) and albums  have topped international charts (#1 on Billboard Japan, iTunes Canada, and beyond), and her multi-lingual performances have delighted audiences across four continents and garnered dedicated fans around the world. 

In every setting — from house concerts to intimate clubs with her trio to grand halls with a symphony orchestra and everything in between — she brings a fresh and original perspective to time-honored musical paths, channeling an innate understanding of connectedness across musical boundaries. 

The School of Arts and Communication in the College of Liberal Arts is hosting a series of Facebook Live events to keep alive the decades-long tradition of noon concerts, while following Oregon State University’s commitment to help reduce the risk and spread of COVID-19.

The “brown bag” concert series has been presenting performances by OSU, regional, national and international musicians on Fridays at noon in the Memorial Union during fall, spring and winter terms since 1969.

While the in-person performances have been canceled, a new series of 30-minute Facebook Live events will be held on Fridays at noon throughout the term.

Other upcoming performances:

  • April 24: William Seiji Marsh, guitar and vocals. Marsh, formerly of Eugene, now based in Los Angeles, is currently the guitarist for Pink Martini. He has toured and recorded with Cherry Poppin’ Daddies, Lost Lander, Halie Loren and more.
  • May 1: Gideon Freudmann, cello. Freudmann is a cross-genre cellist whose live performances use technology to loop and layer tracks in real time. He has played with Richard Thompson, Patty Larkin and They Might Be Giants, and released solo albums in a variety of genres. 

    Additional performances will be announced as they are scheduled.

Friday, April 17 at 12:00pm to 12:30pm
