The 2023-24 season will include A Speakeasy Affair & Fundraiser on February 10, 2024. Inspired by the Jazz at Lincoln Center Presents — Sing and Swing on Saturday, February 10, 2024, the Cowan Center will celebrate the speakeasy era and the decades that followed. The classic partners in jazz and popular song including Ella Fitzgerald and Louis Armstrong, Judy Garland and Bing Crosby, Dean Martin and Peggy Lee, Duke Ellington, Cole Porter and Irving Berlin — you start to get the feeling that we need a party before attending such a rich performance filled with the giants in jazz. Dress up in pearls, hats, spats and glamor for a fundraiser in the elegant Alumni House. (Tommy guns not allowed.)
Plus, exclusively for members at the $250 level and up, plans are underway for a special party and concert in September. Four Nashville singer-songwriters will perform an unforgettable night of their repertoire combined with the stories behind the songs. All four are accomplished and one of them is an East Texas native – Lacie Carpenter Blue. You’ve heard of Nashville’s famous “The Bluebird Café”? The Cowan Center will present that kind of special evening for you right here on the Cowan Center stage! In celebration of Cowan Center members, like years past, the party will include wonderful food and drink enjoyed in the beautiful lobbies.
