Created February 12, 2019

Last year, to celebrate the release of her fourth album, Shoshana Bean returned home for a one night only concert to raise funds for the performing arts at her alma mater, Beaverton High School. The electric evening, featuring student performers from across the Beaverton School District, raised $23,000 for BHS performing arts. The concert was such a success, Shoshana is back for a second year in hopes of topping what was achieved in 2018! 

Shoshana Bean and Friends will take place at Beaverton High School on Thursday April 25th, at 7:30pm. This years line up boasts special guests Thomas Lauderdale of Pink Martini, Michael Allen Harrison, Ashleyy Jay and will again feature student performers chosen by Bean in a special instagram video contest.  

If you are unable to attend the concert, please consider donating to help us cover our expenses so that every cent of ticket sales can go to the high school!  The funds raised last year went to upgrading facilities, paying for costs of music rental, activities fees for students who may not be able to afford them, and gave six, $1000 scholarships to students going on to continue their studies of the arts in college.

Tickets can be purchased at ShoshanaBean.com or via Ticket Tomato at  https://www.tickettomato.com/event/6028 . VIP packages are available which include VIP seating, a pre-show reception, meet and greet and photo with the performers and a signed poster.

"I believe an arts education should be a right, not a privilege. And I believe it is our responsibility as a community to advocate and keep the arts alive and thriving in our schools." Says Bean. 

Enthusiastic Words from the dedicated staff at Beaverton High School:

Principal Anne Erwin says ~  "We continue to be grateful for the gifts we are given by the community and by the alums. We are engaged in the work every day of preparing students for their future and we need a lot of help to do that. The more people lean in and help us with that the more we are able to serve our students."

From Director of Choirs Jonathan Stoner ~ "Get your tickets early and come. it'll be an evening well worth your time. some great music for a great cause, supporting the arts."

The Director of Drama Shannon Dery said ~ "Shoshana Bean has made a world of difference at our school. She's bridged the gap between the past and the present and she's done it with her talent, and a lot of the talent that she built here and she brought it back. We're incredibly grateful." 

Shoshana Bean's four independent solo albums have all topped the iTunes R&B and Blues charts in the US and UK in peak positions including #1. Her 2018 release, Spectrum, landed her at #1 on the Billboard Jazz Charts. 

She is a veteran of the Broadway stage having made her debut in the original cast of Hairspray and starring as the very first replacement for Elphaba in Wicked. Shoshana won a IRNE Award for her performance as Fanny Brice in Funny Girl and earned a Jeff Award nomination for her portrayal of CeeCee Bloom in the pre-Broadway musical production of Beaches. She has sold out solo concerts around the globe, lent her voice to countless films and TV shows, amassed millions of YouTube views, and performed with Ariana Grande, David Foster, Postmodern Jukebox, Brian McKnight, and Michael Jackson.
