A smashing evening of songs, stories, and wine at the Astrid Merriman Cabaret & Cabernet Fête provided the perfect kickoff to the fall Carson Series of Sammons Cabaret which begins Thursday, September 19. Dallas native Marc Toussaint opens the series with a nod to The Forever Songs, timeless gems that sound as fresh today as the day they were written.
Marc grew up listening to Frank Sinatra, Mel Tormé, Dinah Washington, and other great performers. He has since made a name for himself with a smooth and sophisticated voice that led to shared shows with artists such as Stevie Wonder, Mike Love, and Lyle Lovett.
Admission is $45 per person and includes wine, beer, nonalcoholic beverages, light appetizers, and valet parking. Sammons members receive a $5 per person discount. Refreshments are served from 7 p.m. to 8 p.m. and again during intermission; the show begins at 8 p.m. in Kurth Hall, located on the fourth floor of the Sammons Center. For more information, call (214) 520-7788 or visit www.sammonsartcenter.org.
The fall 2019 season of Sammons Cabaret is sponsored by Judy and Royal Carson. Funding for the Carson Series of Sammons Cabaret is also provided in part by the City of Dallas Office of Cultural Affairs, TACA, the National Endowment for the Arts, Texas Commission on the Arts, and the Dallas Tourism Public Improvement District, with additional support from Corporate Business Solutions Inc.
