Jazz, Wine, Hors D'oeuvres, Champagne, Dancing, Dessert, and a Deejay without Leaving Evanston?

It sounds too good to be true, but it's NOT!

Dear Evanston is thrilled to partner with Fleetwood-Jourdain Theatre and MSGroup Chicago at Dream Town Realty for FJT's Wine & Dine Gala - Great Ladies of Jazz Concert on Saturday, September 1.

The fun starts at 6 p.m. with jazz vocalists Mardra Thomas, Bobbi Wilsyn, and Joan Collaso accompanied by the Marlene Rosenberg and Reggie Thomas Jazz Ensemble.

Tickets are $75 ($100 at the door) and include: a pre-concert reception with wine and hors d'oeuvres; a jazz concert with songs that made Billie, Sarah, Ella, Etta, and Nina musical icons; and then party with Dj Phat Katt while sipping champagne and tasting decadent desserts.

FJT is a local treasure, bringing Black American and African diaspora stories to life right here in Evanston packing its theatre time and again and drawing arguably the most integrated crowds (in a city that loves its diversity but seldom comes together across racial lines) to its productions.

Support local professional theatre, help keep the cost of tickets low so that everyone can access it, and have an amazing night with FJT's Tim Rhoze and friends old and new!

Purchase your tickets here!

See you there!
