The Defiance College 2008-09 Schomburg Series 33rd season continues with Dwight Lenox. Dwight Lenox and Orchestra will shine on Thursday, Oct. 23, at 7:30 p.m. in the Historic Valentine Theater, downtown Defiance. His impeccable instincts and mellow sound have garnered the attention of some of the finest musicians in the industry, including Sammy Tucker, Hank Marr, and Harold Jones.
Lenox’s fluid style lends itself to a vast repertoire from Nat King Cole, Frank Sinatra, James Ingram, Stevie Wonder, Lou Rawls and many more. But his raw abilities are uniquely evidenced in his performance of original music, from blues to ballads, from jazz to swing. His career has taken him from New York to Los Angeles to the heart of the Midwest. Once you hear this gifted vocalist, you'll agree that this is the start of a long and successful musical journey.
Support for this year’s Schomburg Series is provided in part by the National Endowment for the Arts, The Hubbard Company, Time Warner Cable, and radio stations WDFM, WZOM, WNDH and WONW.
Tickets for the performance will be available at the door.
