Portland Book Festival – Adriana Wagner
presented by PDX Jazz
Saturday, November 5, 2022 | 12:00 pm - 1:30 pm
Adriana Wagner is an up-and-coming trombonist and composer based in Portland, Oregon. Under full scholarship, she attended the Young Jazz Composers program and received praise from the Oregon ArtsWatch journey for her journey in composition. She was recently awarded the Music Oregon Echo Fund grant to help create her debut album. She is most commonly seen performing in the jazz scene but also can be found playing salsa, cumbia fusion, reggae, and folk/indie. Her soloing uses lyrical elements combined with a soft and rich tone. Her original compositions draw influence from the traditional sounds of jazz while submerging the listener in her visionary storytelling.
Note: The PDX Jazz Stage is in a 21+ only area.
