Michael Allen Harrison
Michael is known for his piano solo performances and recordings, his upbeat sound with his band, his work with inspiring vocalist Julianne Johnson, his skills producing and creating music for ballet, theater and film, his love for teaching and perhaps mostly known for his giving spirit. He was honored with a star on the walk of fame in front of the Portland Performing Arts Center for his artistic and community contributions to his hometown, Portland, Oregon.
Michael founded The Snowman Foundation, which has raised over $3 million for school music programs and community centers, and directed countless scholarships and musical instruments to children.
He created Ten Grands as the fundraising platform for Michael and nine other pianists to perform together on ten pianos to benefit the mission of The Snowman Foundation. Ten Grands is in its 14th season, having expanded to Seattle, and plans a world tour in 2015.
