Andre Watts, Jon Kimura Parker, Angela Hewitt and the exciting Montreal pianist Marc-Andre Hamelin head the 2007-08 season at Portland Piano International. It's a strong lineup, especially Hewitt, who will play Bach's first book of the 'Well-Tempered Clavier' in her only Northwest stop on a worldwide Bach tour.

Two other pianists fill the season: Rachel Cheung, a young Hong Kong pianist and Michael Roll, the esteemed English pianist who won the first Leeds in 1963 at the age of 17.

Each pianist will perform twice in the Newmark Theater, expanding on this season's single-concert sellouts. Tickets go on sale April 15: 503-228-1388.

Clockwise from left upper corner: Andre Watts, Jon Kimura Parker, Angela Hewitt, Michael Roll, Rachel Cheung and Marc-Andre Hamelin.
