Dramatic start to February

January 27, 2013 by  

The Dix Hills Performing Arts Center will host a ‘Tribute to the Great Jazz Organists, Nancy Wilson and Tap!’ at the beginning of February – one of two music-packed shows to start the month.

Maurice Chestnut provides the tap dancing in the title while vocalist Charisa rouse will perform a variety of songs written by Nancy Wilson. Organist and jazz pianist TW Sample will perform some of the great jazz music of our time. Tickets are $20 for the show, which begins at 7:30 p.m. on February 1.

The following day is likely to call for yet more promotional poster printing, the arts center will feature ‘Mostly Moptop in Two of Us: The Ballad of John and Paul’ which explores the song writing partnership of Paul McCartney and John Lennon.

Tickets to the 7:30 pm show are $25 – $35. The arts center is located at 305 North Service Road, Dix Hills. For more information on either show, call (631) 656-2148.
