International musical artist entertains in Woodstock
For the third season, pianist and composer Michael Allen Harrison performed a holiday show at Our Lady of Sorrows Parish, at S.E.52nd and Woodstock Boulevard, in Woodstock, on Friday, November 16th.
'Michael Allen Harrison and Julianne Johnson have been well-received by our parishioners, and by community members,' remarked Evelyn Frison, secretary and bookkeeper for the parish.
'We've enjoyed them so much because they are so down-to-earth. They do great work. They are generous with their time and talent.'
Although he was late in arriving to this particular show, the audience of about 200 people waited patiently while Harrison set up his sound equipment. The patrons then obviously enjoyed the performance he put on with his friend and performance partner, singer Julianne Johnson.
Harrison, a Portland native who has performed across the country and internationally, also regularly performs fund-raising concerts for St. Philip Neri Church on S.E. Divison Street as well.
