Music a la Carte (Facebook Live): William Seiji Marsh

The multi-genre guitarist, singer, bassist and educator, William Seiji Marsh will give a 30 min. 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.

Marsh, a former Oregonian who now resides in Southern California, contributes his guitar skills to many of Oregon’s staple and up-and-coming artists. He currently performs internationally with Portland’s crossover classical/jazz/pop polyglots, Pink Martini; as well as genre-bending powerhouse singer/guitarist/whistler, Edna Vazquez.  In the past he has toured and recorded with platinum-record-selling swing/rock outfit Cherry Poppin’ Daddies; Portland’s indie-rock favorite, Lost Lander; and Billboard-topping singer and songwriter, Halie Loren.

Marsh thrives on variety in his career, and as a result has developed a wide stylistic range. When he is not on tour, he finds great joy in aiding guitarists’ musical development. He has maintained a private guitar studio in Portland’s prestigious Falcon Art Community, and has been on the guitar faculty at Willamette University and Reed College. He also co-owned/co-directed Harmony Roadhouse Music Studios in Eugene.

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:

  • 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 24 at 12:00pm to 12:30pm
