Jazz artists to perform at ECC Arts Center

ELGIN – Songwriters Lizz Wright and Raul Midón will join forces for a soul-nourishing night of jazz, R&B, soul and gospel Saturday at Elgin Community College.

The performance will begin at 7:30 p.m. at the ECC Arts Center’s Blizzard Theatre in Building H on the Spartan Drive Campus, 1700 Spartan Drive.

Wright has been the recipient of critical acclaim since her Verve debut, “Salt,” in 2003. She is known for topping the jazz charts, but is far from most people’s idea of a traditional jazz singer.

Wright continues her genre-defying journey with her latest album “Fellowship,” a nod to her roots in gospel.

Singer-songwriter and guitarist Midón has earned renown as one of music’s most distinctive and searching voices. The New Mexico native, blind since birth, has three major label records under his belt: “State of Mind,” “A World Within A World” and “Synthesis.”

Tickets for this event are $34.

Tickets for all performances in the ECC Arts Center are available online at tickets.elgin.edu or at the ECC box office in the arts center. Box office hours are noon to 7 p.m. Monday through Thursday and noon to 5 p.m. Friday and Saturday. To buy tickets, call 847-622-0300.
