DIXON – The Historic Dixon Theatre rescheduled an exclusive private jazz performance to June 20 because of coronavirus.
Grammy-nominated pianist Judy Carmichael is coming to Dixon for a private fundraising event at 7 p.m. June 20 at the home of Tim Boles, president of the nonprofit Historic Dixon Theatre Group.
Tickets cost $200 and proceeds will be used to bring Carmichael's National Public Radio show "Jazz Inspired" to Dixon for taping before a live audience in September.
Carmichael, one of the few jazz pianists honored as a Steinway Artist, will perform on the rare 1920 Steinway A-3 at Boles' home. Seating is limited and includes a champagne reception and a meet-and-greet.
She's played at prestigious venues such as Carnegie Hall and the Peggy Guggenheim Museum in Venice, and held private recitals for notable figures including Rod Stewart, Robert Redford, President Bill Clinton and Gianni Agnelli.
Also being rescheduled is the Rockstar Roadshow, which now will take place at 7:30 p.m. June 26 at the theater, 114 S. Galena Ave.
The group is a rock tribute band that recreates singer/guitarist duos such as Led Zeppelin, Aerosmith, Van Halen and AC/DC.
The Metropolis Symphony Orchestra of Chicago is scheduled to perform at 5 p.m. June 14.
All The Wizard of Oz community production performances have been postponed to 2021.
