Annual event features national, international musicians

A hidden gem? Perhaps, but this year’s ninth annual Oregon Coast Jazz Party features a national and international cast that organizers believe is beginning to attract attention to the modest four-day event at the Newport Performing Arts Center.

Catherine Rickbone, executive director of the Oregon Coast Council for the Arts, believes the success of the event has been the community’s volunteer and financial support from the beginning.

“We have been open to community input in an effort to make it vital and exciting, and people have responded by giving us input each year,” she said. “Businesses and other organizations have also been very involved in keeping it going year to year. We couldn’t be happier with how it has evolved. And our volunteers? We couldn’t do it without them.”
