This is your chance to experience not one, but two unmatched musicians live! 

Singer/songwriter Raul Midón knows his way around a concert stage. He’s toured with Shakira, performed alongside Stevie Wonder, and made his national television debut on The Late Show with David Letterman. Known for his sumptuous vocals and cascading guitar techniques, he lives in a world of sound, having lost his vision at birth. His work moves fluidly between the genres of jazz, pop, R&B, folk, and Latin, refusing to be pinned down – a true musical chameleon. 

Vocalist and contemporary jazz performer Diane “Deedles” Schuur is a blind legend in her own right. Her live performances encompass a lifetime of singing, able to spin from a tenuous high note to a low vibrato in a single breath, showcasing her pitch-perfect execution and three-and-a-half-octave vocal range.  Schuur’s much-laureled career includes two GRAMMY Award wins, three nominations, and over 20 acclaimed albums, making her one of the most respected singers in the jazz world.  

Raul Midón will open the evening with a multi-instrumental showcase of his best work, demonstrating why NPR described him as a musician of “remarkable guitar chops and a voice whose expressiveness recalls the legends of soul.” In the second act, Diane Schuur takes the stage with a sampling of her best hits accompanied by a rhythm section highlighted by Raul Midón.
